Teen Camp 2011

Teen Camp this year was another incredible week!  I wasn't able to post every day like I did last year because we actually stayed at camp all week instead of driving back home each night.  And, of course, there was no internet access that far away from the city.

Our theme this year was "Consider Christ."  Our attendance was 85 (on-site) campers... up about 10% from last year.  If you include daily drive-ins who came for the evening services we had over 100 some of the nights.  Three teens were saved and many other important decisions were made concerning service and personal relationships with the Lord. 

We had some amazing groups of teens/leaders come and a terrific spirit all week.  Many thanks to everyone who participated and for those who prayed on our behalf.

I've been busy washing several loads of laundry and hanging them outside to dry, unpacking 6 suitcases, and unspoiling *one* baby who was held all week by loving teen girls.

We are all happily tired.


  1. Wow, praise the Lord that your camp was such a success and that 3 were saved. Amen!
    I can't wait until we have more churches in Croatia so that we can come together for youth camp.
    Great report!

  2. What a beautiful bunch of children ready to listen to God's word! May they continue to be blessed by it as they grow.

  3. Praise the Lord! That is a blessing to hear!

  4. It looks like y'all had a great time. I remember so many good times at camp, glad y'all can do that for those kids!

  5. Have enjoyed seeing the pic for this years teen camp! I believe with all my heart God is reaching teens in a special way in these last days...have been praying for you guys this week...and the teens who came to your camp!! =)

  6. I have been reading your blog for a while now, and saw that Bro. Alton Beal was at your camp. I also saw some videos of him singing {at your church, maybe?} on facebook. We have known the Beal's for years and are good friends with them. I just thought it was neat to see him there in Ukraine with you all--small world! We also know the Mitchum's from Ambassador Baptist College.

    So glad to hear that camp went so well! :o)
