The Adventure Continues

Our first teams have returned from their camp adventures. Both Camp PYOCA and Kids Camp returned with awesome stories of how the Holy Spirit moved and worked IMG_1625.JPGthroughout the week. Each camp enjoyed beautiful weather, meaningful conversations, and a deepened understanding of God’s incredible plan for His people. If you’d like to hear more about these trips and their work for the kingdom, you can contact the ministry directors or ask any of the team members.

 

UntitledThis week, we will be sending off two teams. Our Brazil mission team leaves on Friday and our Morris Fork mission team leaves on Saturday. Each of these ministries have been a part of our summer missions for many years. Their impact can be felt across many generations and communities. As these teams depart, please keep them in your prayers for travels and health, but also that their respective ministries continue to bring these communities to Christ.

The Brazil team is preparing to work in a local church in Goiania. Their work will include painting a new space, building a stage, and purchasing a freezer for a local halfway house. The team is looking forward to worshiping with old friends, and serving with new faces.

The Morris Fork team has been hard at work planning their annual VBS13528581_10154348232883953_1815364083650926874_o for the surrounding community. Team members are excited to return to the small church in Kentucky and put on a week-long VBS. SPC’s visit to Morris Fork is a highlight of summer for many residents, and both team members and residents see God working throughout the trip.

There are many more missions ahead of us. As the summer continues, please keep our teams in your prayers. Your involvement and dedication to putting the Gospel in motion is what allows SPC to continue to change the world.

Everything is AWESOME!!!

Kids Camp Logo #2“You are the most talented, most interesting, and most extraordinary person in the universe. And you are capable of amazing things. Because you are the Special. And so am I. And so is everyone.”

A week away from home can be scary for some kids and even some parents, but even in the 24 hours we have been at camp, God has done amazing things. Our theme for the week is focusing on God as the “Master Builder”, the creator of everything, and the orchestrator of each intricate detail in our lives.

Whether it is missing home, the heat, bug bites, lack of sleep, or anxiety about a new activity God has provided us with the ability to overcome and even thrive in each situation. We are being equipped every day to do God’s work!

In an environment lacking in technology, campers are discovering new and exciting skills IMG_7014like fishing, high ropes, zip-lining, horseback riding, canoeing, team-work, bible memory, and even
cleaning up their cabins! As a camp staff, we have seen timid campers rise up and lead and strong campers cheer on and encourage others. God truly has his hand in our week and we are so excited to see all He has planned!

Everything is AWESOME because we serve and AWESOME God!
