Camp 2009

July 20th to the 24th we held our youth camp for 2009.   We had between 35-40.  Our young men did a wonderful job of helping with the camp.  I wasn’t there all the time because our group from America was with us, but everything was in good hands.

During the testimony time on Friday morning I was filled with joy.  Those that participated mentioned how they were touched by the messages.  Most of the messages that were mentioned weren’t from me but from the other young men in training.  I heard Bro. Austin Gardner say, “My thrill in life is when somebody I train becomes successful”.  I must say that when I see these young men being used by God that I am elated(not sure where that word came from).  It is a thrill.  In order for this work or any mission work to succeed it can’t be all about the missionary.  It must be all about the men of God he is training.  God has really given us some wonderful young men who are selfless, hard working and love God with all their heart.  Please pray for me as I try my best to lead them.
