Each year Word of Life Peru sees many students saved and lives transformed for Jesus. They have an exciting camping ministry that is vital to this goal. Recently they heard of a magnificent testimony of a student saved at the camp. She writes:
“I was walking far from God, doubting so much from His Word and especially doubting His love, but I still considered myself a ‘good girl.’ But I still felt myself empty. Here at camp I understood that the only thing I need is to believe and trust in the Jesus Christ. I understood for the first time that God is so awesome that I can’t understand Him with just my own thoughts.
At the beginning of the week, I was questioning all the preaching and teaching here at camp but I thank God that my counselor did not give up on me. We had a serious conversation after the camp fire night and that is when I understood that Jesus was real and that He loved me and died on the cross for me.
I trusted Christ as my Savior and now I feel like a totally new person.
I trust that God will help me to change all that is wrong in my life. Still, I have many doubts but I know they can be answered by reading the Word of God and remaining close to Him. I want to live like a true child of God, keeping away from sin and sharing His Word to those who don’t know Him.”
