Sports Camp - Week 1 complete

Thanks everyone for your prayers. God blessed this week. Kids had fun flying on the flying squirrel, shooting targets at archery, and stuffing thier faces with great food at meal times. They played soccer, basketball, and danced while learning the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.

But, most importantly of all, many kids and teens gave their hearts and lives to our Savior Jesus.

Seeing the transformation from tough kids who are swearing at you to kids with tears in their eyes because they don't want to say goodbye is incredible. God is doing incredible things. The age of miracles is now. God is not done with changing lives.

What I need to remember sometimes is that God is still transforming me. He is still changing me. He is still growing me.

And he is still changing you too!  Don't take this as a sign of setback though. This is the good news of the gospel. Jesus has not only saved us, but he is still saving us!

What in your life is God using to grow you? Leave a comment sharing how God continues to grow you.


  1. Continuing to pray for all the kids who I met at Shiloh this past week. Also praying for those yet to come. May God give you His strength, His words and great courage for the weeks to come.

  2. I'd like to think it is patience. I seem to stop and consider my actions and words before I use them.

  3. And HE is changing me too! God continue to bless your week at camp! Jayden had a great time at Northern Frontier Camp last week!

  4. Thanks for the good report Tim. God is still teaching me as well! I'm learning to take what God means literally when He means us to take it literally.

  5. Tim, God bless you for giving these kids a chance. His work in me is continual. Sometimes I don't see a change. Then something happens and I say, Wow, I wouldn't have reacted like that a month ago, or a year ago. I've been changed. I pray that you have blessed camp sessions all summer and that you are blessed by the love of the children.
