I had the privilege to preach to over 1,000 young people at a Vacation Bible School camp organized Aug. 6–12. The camp, which drew children from public primary and junior high schools in four regions, is run by the Atomic Hills Baptist Church, where I have worked before as an assistant pastor for over two years. It turned out that my casual visit to the VBS camp was a divine mission. The speaker scheduled for that afternoon’s section was held up in a meeting at his office and was not going to be able to come. I was glad to step in and do what I love to do best: speaking to young people. Over 200 adolescents responded to the call to give their lives to Jesus and live for Him. Praise the Lord! The following day, I was tasked to go back and officiate a quiz competition. A great opportunity and an exciting ministry.
The following week I was scheduled to speak at another camp—the Baptist Youth Group—where over 400 youth were gathered from seven of our Baptist churches. It was a refreshing opportunity speaking to the energetic youth about evangelism and how it affects them. Some 45 youth gave their lives to Jesus, and several more rededicated their ways to the Lord. Praise the Lord!
