Our annual youth camp 5 Day Escape went amazingly, we had 48 youth come and spent five days living life to the fullest! Aside from the nonstop activity we were able to connect with many of the youth. I loved getting to know the four girls in my cabin, hearing about what they like doing and what they want to do when they finish school. I got to share about what I do and why also about all the different places I have traveled to. I could tell that their perspectives on life were being challenged as we shared about putting others' needs before our own. Praise God for what he did at 5DE, I love seeing these young people
What's Next??? This week is our last week in the training room and then our next eight weeks is focused on practical youth ministry. The biggest aspect of this outreach phase is that we'll be going overseas to Cambodia. We will be working with a youth development centre that has 400 young people coming daily. We'll have the opportunity to be part of-teaching english, computer skills, and other things like art, dance, or music. We are equipping Cambodian youth to make an impact in their country.
I've seen just over $1,000 come in towards my staff fees, 5DE camp, and for outreach in Cambodia. My starting goal amount was $4,370, my remaining need is $3,000. Click the donate button below to partner with me in reaching the youth of Cambodia!

Here's a bible verse that inspires me: Mark 10:28-30 Peter said to him, "We have left everything to follow you!""I tell you the truth," Jesus replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life.
