Camping with the Schools

‘At the beginning of camp, we received a phone call from a parent saying that her child was begging them to turn the car around. Before they arrived at the car park, we prayed for the camper and that God would help us to get him onto camp and that the devil would not have a foothold. When the camper arrived John and I met with him where we found him in a huddled-up position in between the back and front car seats. After 20 minutes of chatting to the camper we managed to 1) Get him to sit up, 2) Get him out of the car and 3) Get him onto the bus. Over the course of the ride, he opened up and began to chat to me about himself, and over the camp he really got involved and stayed engaged. It was so awesome to see God at work in his heart!’ Chloe (School Camping Fieldworker)

This speaks to God’s power at work through SU’s School Camps and the value these camps hold for schools and families. Our partnerships with schools have continued to strengthen over the last year. Despite COVID-19 and program cancellations we facilitated 14 school camps, reaching approximately 600 children and other young people with the Gospel. We praise God daily for the outpouring of opportunities to speak into and impact young lives. God is so big and good and faithful. And we thank you so very much for your continued encouragement, prayer, financial giving, and your serving on camp alongside us.

Please pray for sustainable and effective ministry, and that God would continue to bring volunteers into the ministry who love and fear the Lord.
