Churches often take advantage of this four day weekend to get out of the city and host a retreat camp. We were able to join one of these camps as guest speakers for a few days, undertaking workshops and a sermon. It wasn’t all teaching though, the camp was packed with activities and games which gave us opportunities to build and strengthen friendships.
One of the highlights were the Baptisms that took place on the last day. Six young people were baptized, including Diego and Celina. Diego has been part of Casa de la Amistad and Celina a part of Jireh, and both came to know Christ through these projects. It was great to be able to personally witness the growth in these youth over several years and share this meaningful day with them.
