We had a great 2018 FCA Leadership Camp at Campbellsville University. Thank you so much for praying for us and the over 700 campers, staff, and volunteers. We are so thankful to see all the lives that were changed for Christ this past week. Please watch the video below to get a small glimpse of how awesome Leadership Camp was!
Well, we are back from another great year at FCA Leadership Camp. I have a lot to share with you, but to be honest I am needing to catch my breath for a little bit before I do. However God is great and we had an awesome time seeing Him work in the lives of our students. So I wanted to share some videos of our students praising God and even one of our dear sweet Maeven singing with the younger kids!
Our 2017 FCA Leadership Camp at Campbellsville University is off to a great start. Over 60 kids from our Central Kentucky region of schools have joined over 450 students here at camp. Even though the rain came in right when they were supposed to have games and competition on Thursday afternoon the students took it in stride and actually had a time of afternoon Bible study with their huddles!
On Thursday evening, I (Andy) had the opportunity to teach a “Buzz Group.” A “Buzz Group,” is a short seminar that the students can choose to go to. We give them a bunch of seminars on various topics and they can choose the ones that interest them. I taught mine on how to deal with temptation. We looked at the example of Joseph and how when it came to temptation Joseph, “Got Buff, Got Tough, and Got Out of There!” I taught two sessions on my topic and had around 25 kids in each session. It was great to get to interact with the students and talk to them about things like spiritual disciplines, setting boundaries, and finding accountability partners. I can’t wait to teach again on Saturday night!
Before I close this post I want to ask you to keep praying for all our Leadership Campers. Pray for safety here at camp, but most of all pray that lives will be surrendered to Christ! Also, check out this video of over 450 students worshiping our Amazing Savior Thursday night!
AC Units being installed…
I (Andy) am writing this after a very exciting week at the Lee County Recreational Center. After being with out AC for over a year and a half we now have cool air at the Rec Center!!! Not only is this a good thing for personal comfort, but we are excited because it has honestly been so hot that we have had many patrons that had given up bowling and coming out due to the heat. We are so very thankful for the many that stuck with us and supported us through the heat. Now we are hoping and praying that the cool air will encourage those who stuck with us and bring back many old and new faces for the various events and outreaches at the Rec Center. Please keep us in your prayers as we need to raise over $3,000 to pay off the remainder of this project!
Judah riding horses w/ Aunt Amanda
This past we were also blessed with a great week at Youth Haven Bible Camp. I had the opportunity to take students students to and from YHBC. Talking to the students as they were nervous on Monday and then so excited about all they had done at camp, the people they had met, and about what they had learned in chapel was very encouraging. We were also blessed to have our pastor, Terry Leap, be the chapel speaker at YHBC. He did an incredible job sharing from God’s Word with the students and it was great to spend time catching up too.
Maeven riding horses w/ Cubs Campers @ YHBC
Maeven reached another milestone this week as she was able to spend part of the week going to Cubs Camp at YHBC all on her own. She loved swimming and riding horses especially. Judah is also getting to be a big boy and so far his favorite part of summer is discovering sunglasses. Erin is doing well and been keeping busy delivering puppies and keeping the kids involved in Cubs Camp and various other events.
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support!
