With just a few short months left until summer, we are working hard to prepare for the upcoming Bible Camps! As we prepare, it is so easy to get caught up in the logistics of planning (collection of craft materials, registration, scheduling, promotions, etc), to look past the meaning of these Bible Camps, and the preparation God is doing in the hearts of the the young children, DR student leaders, and our own staff members. Please join us in reflecting in thanksgiving of God’s handiwork through the testimonies of these young students that have grown up participating in Bible Camp!
"The camp for me has helped me to know more about the word of God, I have learned about his sacrifice and this has led me to repent of my sins. One of the most shocking things for me is to listen to the testimonies, sometimes we think that other people do not suffer but when we hear them we see how God is working in their lives."
Aneudi Rosario, 13 years old – Zion Village
"I have seen that the camps are very special and specific to us. I have learned through these to have joy in my heart and praise. I have been able to learn about the love of God and this has taught me a lot to help other people."
David, 17 years old – Redemption Village
"I have been participating in the Cold Water Cups camp for 3 years and I can say that it has helped me in many things, first I learned many things about God and that if there is someone who gives us advice we have to appreciate it. I have also learned to treat my family and those around me much better, I have caught on the armor of God, the shoes of the gospel is my favorite, I have learned from the Kingdom of God, and what has impacted me most is on the light that was my best part to learn to see the light that separates us from the darkness."
Maria Victoria, 14 years old – Maranatha Village
Bible Camp is a huge part of our Mission in the DR. For just a few weeks of the summer, the children are able to participate in worship, dancing, crafts, bible lessons, memory verses, and hearing testimonials from our trip participants. These weeks are full of fellowship, laughter, joy and spiritual growth! When you partner with $23/month, you are giving a child access to these Bible Camps each year, as well as our year-round discipleship programs.
