You will all be pleased to note that of the nearly 450 campers who came through the camp gate, 185 made first time decisions to follow Christ, 225 communicated that they desire to grow in their faith, 65 communicated a need and interest in having a mentor, 88 communicated that they sense God calling them into some form of full-time vocational ministry, and 184 made commitments to keep their virginity until marriage. I know what the statistics say, but they aren’t as relevant where God is at work, and He is certainly moving in the lives of the campers you had the opportunity to shepherd.
It has been a tremendous blessing hearing people describe the fellowship, challenge, adventure, and growth experienced while here. We thought it would be a blessing for you to hear what others have said as well. We felt like this note encapsulated the summer and the comments we have heard from families, kaleos, campers, and staff…
“I want to take a moment to thank you, and let you know how much this past week meant to me and how much God used you and camp in my walk with Christ. I sensed the presence of God at Citikidz very strongly, and I was overwhelmed by His love, grace, and holiness. Each one of my campers experienced God in some way, and it is so comforting to know they heard the Gospel very clearly multiple times each day they were at camp. I am excited to continue to disciple my boys and recruit a few more for next year! Thank you for all you did and are doing.”
We love you all and CANNOT wait until the start of Citikidz 2014: Outbreak!!!!
