Camp Christa trip

Here is the Camp Christa report, which is also found on my family's blog (www.terofamilyministries.com). I was so blessed to be able to go up to Colorado for Camp Christa this year and praise the Lord for the work that He did that week!

My older brothers, Christopher and Daniel, and I trekked up to Colorado, July 11-20, 2014, to help with Camp Christa, a camp for Navajo and Ute Indians. The Lord blessed us with an amazing camp! The campers all seemed very receptive and several made professions of faith.

I was so very grateful to be the girls' teen counselor this year. I had an amazing group - my highlight was leading one of my girls to Jesus Christ!

Again, we were enthralled by God's beauty in the Colorado mountains! After camp, we went up to the Mesa Verde national park with our cousin Jacob. There, we not only saw the old cliff dwellings made from rock, but we also had an amazing view from the mountaintop!

We also had a little time to fellowship with the missionaries up there and spent some down time at the park.

Lovely, Amanda! Looks like you all had an awesome time there at the camp! I especially liked seeing the kind of activities there (i.e. a lot of Scripture, singing and even the running/exercise), not silly games that are usually done at camps. Praise the Lord for the work He is doing there, and thanks for sharing.

You're welcome, Becky! I thought specifically of you when I posted it. ;) I love going to Camp Christa - they do have a good balance of serious activities and it's so much fun to study with the kids and help prepare them for their Bible quizzes! There is a lot of good things done at camp and God is powerful to save! But these kids go back to a tough environment where it is not easy to live the Christian life. We need to keep them in our prayers!
