As you read this I’m at our High School Ministry’s Summer Camp! I love this week, it’s such an awesome opportunity to reach out to students, to meet new students and see God change lives right before your eyes. For me it’s also a chance for me to meet the majority of the guys that I’ll have in my small group in September.
I’ve spent a lot of time in prayer before camp this year. Very intentional prayer asking God for some very specific things for camp. First I’ve prayed for all of the students at camp. We’re taking 750 students this time, the largest summer camp we’ve ever had. Just the logistics of camp need prayer this year! Once I got the list of students who will be in my cabin I’ve been praying for them by name, asking God to use me in that student’s life as He needs me to work and that camp will be an amazing, life changing experience for them.
I’ve prayed for our high school staff. I love these guys, they do a ton of work in a short time and always manage to plan out and pull off amazing camps every year! I’ve prayed for our high school pastor, and for all of the volunteers that will be going to camp.
I’ll be back next week with some great posts about camp and the amazing things that happened this week. But for now I ask for your prayers. After you read this, say a prayer for Saddleback Church’s High School Ministry Camp and for the students and for me and keep us in prayer this week.
