The Lord gave us the privilege to minister last weekend at SHCM’s Winter Teen Retreat II. I was thrilled to hear testimonies from the campers and staff of how God had worked in their hearts! The teens soaked up the preaching sessions and many demonstrated enthusiastic attitudes. It reminds me of the days when I was a camper and how the Truths of God slowly influenced my thinking. Major decisions in my life were surely affected by preaching at camp and I am confident that the same will be true in the lives of these teenagers!
Weekend retreats are quite busy. Much preaching is packed into a short time which causes you, as the preacher, to rely upon the Lord all the more. The Lord continues to teach me that He must do the work – I am simply His servant!
