Youth Mission Camp

"Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails."  Proverbs 19:21


Last year after our church annual youth camp, we started planning on this years camp, and we decided to take it to a higher level. We will be doing a "MISSION CAMP" for our youth. Because our church is a missionary sending church, it is but right to start training our youth for Missions as early as possible. So "Mission Camp" it is.

But after months of planning, God revealed his greater and bigger plans. This Mission camp that we originally planned for the youth of our church is now a "Mission Camp" for the youth of different churches and we are now preparing for at least 500 young people from all over the Philippines.

"Wow that's big! Can we do it? " That's exactly my words when we learned about it. I even asked our Pastor if we are really doing this and his words  encouraged me "We can't do it but but God can".  So true, sometimes I tend to look on what I cannot do and forget that God can use me, our small church, our youth Pastor, our worship team, you and ordinary people to do extra ordinary things for His glory!

So, last weekend, we were in Davao, we inspected the campsite and had meetings with our co-organizers from there, We were blessed to meet selfless servants of God who are really on fire. In Davao, midnight prayers and dawn prayers are everywhere :) It was such an honor to be able to join them.

one of the churches we visited (we stayed here one night) it's literally in top of the mountain
this is the camp site, that's me and our youth Pastor discussing if we really can do it here :D

I'm asking everyone who read this (wherever you are) to please include this "Mission Camp" in your prayers, our goal is to awaken the youth that this is the end times and that God can use them for this generation to spread the gospel and win souls for Jesus Christ. So please please pray that many young people will benefit from this camp, pray for their finances, pray for their safety and for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit during the entire camp days.

Thanks and God bless everyone!
