Camp Mission 2023 – Delta Force
On January 10, twenty people from 3 churches here in the US departed for Brazil for our annual Kids Camp in our headquarters city of Assis. There we teamed up with the entire team of Agents of Hope who had gathered for this “all hands on deck” event. What an adventure and what a blessing!
This year we had to move our camp into a new and smaller facility. No worries though. We just divided the kids up into 2 groups and did camp twice. Wow! And we thought that one camp was tiring. In the end, around 300 children and 100 volunteers from our various neighborhood Bible clubs and sports ministries in and around Assis participated in camp over four days.
Our theme for camp was “Delta Force” or the power of change. We talked with the kids about the power that God has to transform their hearts, their lives, and their communities through the gospel. There were games, skits, testimonies, crafts, and some pretty amazing food as well. The worship was fantastic as the children connected with the joy of the Lord in that place. Many children in attendance made first time professions of faith while many more were encouraged in their walk with the Lord.
