2017 started with a first ever for Abba's Pride! We hosted a Kids' Camp for over 70 students from 4 of our partnering churches. The camp was held at Camp Zenith in Heidelberg. Volunteers from the USA and South Africa travelled to the camp on Sunday afternoon and prepared for the exciting week ahead.
Students and their leaders arrived on their buses on Monday afternoon and the madness began! Throughout the week the students participated in various activities and games including drama, soccer, dance, swimming, basketball and art. The favourite of almost all of the students was swimming because many of them never get a chance to swim in a pool! The most important part of the week though was the time spent worshiping Jesus through song, hearing the Gospel of Jesus and spending time talking about it in small groups.
The theme for the week was "God's Love Knows No Limits" from I Corinthians 13:7-8 which says
"Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. It is, in fact, the one thing that still stands when all else has fallen."
By the end of the week we had at least 10 students who accepted Christ for the first time and many more who rededicated their lives to Him.
Thank you so much to all of the Eastsiders who came out and helped make camp so amazing! And thank you to the many other Eastsiders who helped make it happen by giving financially! We couldn't have done it without all of you!!
