When God’s people come together there is an amazing unity of spirit and the 2012 Kids’ Camp was absolute proof of this. It was a privilege to be included as part of an incredible team of leaders and assistants and to enjoy the benefit of interacting with the children. Under the leadership of Lance the 2012 camp MISSION: HIMPOSSIBLE encouraged the children to be the best agents that they can be, while at all times keeping in contact with God, emphasising the importance of faith, the Holy Spirit, praying to God, reading God’s Word and getting closer to God.
The children were divided into five teams representing five nations that need prayer: Turkey, Indonesia, Iran, Morocco and North Korea. The children rose to the occasion and war cries and camp songs were a highlight during the course of the weekend. In between this time the children enjoyed various challenges and games: Tug of War, obstacle courses, paintball, “spider web”, pole balance in the pool, the climbing wall and smuggling Bibles into China, with a healthy dose of free time for swimming, relaxing and meals.
As qualified field agents the children have been released into the mission field. Here are the missions that you can help them with:
Mission 1: Each child is encouraged to give a packet of chips together with a booklet to a friend and read it with them.
Mission 2: Read James 4:8 – Come near to God and He will come near to you.
Mission 3: Read Romans 8:31 – If God is for us, who can be against us?
Mission 4: Read Psalm 5:3 – In the morning, Lord, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait expectantly.
Mission 5: Read 1 Corinthians 15:41 – The sun has one kind of splendour, the moon another and the stars another, and star differs from star in splendour.
Mission 6: Read Matthew 10:42 – And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is My disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.
Book early for Kids’ Camp 2013…it is a valuable part of your child’s walk with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
