Being able to return on summer staff for a second consecutive summer allowed me to continue building relationships with campers I had met the previous years. Conversations about Jesus that I had with them in previous years were able to continue and go deeper. It is such a special thing to affirm that the love and care that we, as a camp, and that Christ, as our Savior, has for us over and over again through continual interactions that don’t end with camp ends.

This summer truly showed me what it means to walk in reliance on God – to walk in step with Him every minutes of a day. I am by no means perfect in this, but it was truly wonderful to experience by His grace. His power was made perfect in my weakness, and in that I rejoice. One moment that sticks out to me this summer was in a conversation with one of the Junior campers. He told me that he had accepted Jesus before but it was because someone told him what to do. He told me that this time, he wanted to understand what he was doing. I truly saw the light of Christ change him and experience the joy that he held because of the simplicity of understanding salvation.

This summer has been discouraging and encouraging in many ways. Discouraging in the fact that there is so much hurt and brokenness in even young kids. Even though they are so young they experience things people shouldn’t go through even in a lifetime. Despite being discouraged because of the brokenness, the need to share the Gospel was even more immediate. There is nothing I can do to solve their situation, except share with them the fact that there is a savior who loves them and comforts them. Even though I am only with them for six fast paced days, I am hopeful the Lord impacts them through Bible studies, through individual time, and everyday routine. Camp is like speed-dating with the brokenness of the world: there is little we can do, except put our trust fully in our Lord Jesus that he will restore the pain and suffering. The importance of camp is that I am not doing the work, but Jesus Christ is working and changing lives.

I’ve been so blessed to be able to be a part of BLC for the past two summers. It has honestly been such a joy to work alongside all of the staff and poir into all the kids that come. God deeply refreshed and encouraged my soul this summer through all the people be placed in my life at BLC> I always walk away from BLC having a greater sense of what the body of Christ ought to look like as we strive to humbly and sacrificially love one another as Christ loved us and to proclaim, cherish and exalt Christ together. I see the resident staff striving to structure an atmosphere that it totally Christ centered and Christ exalting. They don’t try to be “showy” in what they do. They just strive to humbly and authentically point kids to JESUS, that they would believe in Him and find their joy and satisfaction fully in Him! I will forever be grateful for BLC and am excited for how the LORD will continue to work through this ministry!
