Faith Week is here!

June 6, 2009

faithweek09

It’s hard to believe it is finally here, but camp begins Monday morning in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.  We are looking forward to a great week and covet your prayers for our workers, students and staff.

Faith Week holds a special place in my heart as it is the place that I came to know and follow Jesus.  It was the summer between my junior and senior year in high school and I was a “good church kid”, but I was as lost as a duck in the desert.  My camp counseler (who happened to be my Sunday school teacher) took me aside and talked to me very frankly about the things I said I believed and the way I lived my life.  God used that conversation to help me recognize my need for a Savior and I knelt by a tree outside the worship center and gave my life to Christ.  My story is not unique, God has changed the lives of literally thousands of lives at Faith Week.  What a privilege it is for us as a church to host this camp each year, thank you Eastwood for your sacrifice and willingness to invest in the lives of young people…you are a blessing.

Please set aside some time this week to pray for God to move in a powerful way at camp this year.  I am praying that lives will be changed and that the impact of this week will influence the nations in the coming days.

Jeff
