This morning, training starts for LBE’s summer workers

“As for other matters, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you.” 2 Thessalonians‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Good morning,

I’ve been a youth leader for so much of my career and have seen many youth go through the different stages of independence. I am now beginning to experience these same challenges and joys through the perspective of a father.

Today I brought my 13 year old daughter for her first big Independent volunteer experience – she’s been accepted to the Summer Adventure’s ministry team!

Summer Adventures is our in-city day camp for children in grades 2-4. We will have one week of training and preparation followed by 6 weeks of ministry. Next week will be a full week of up to 40 campers complete with bus pickups, worship, Bible lessons and field trips. The following week our summer staff will spend time with smaller groups of children who are ready for discipleship. Then it all repeats two more times.

Pray with me for all the young people who are training this week (in the city and at Explorers Bible Camp). May the Living Word of God run through their hearts and lives swiftly and may Jesus be glorified across southern Manitoba because of our faithful witness.
