On the last night of Camp

Sam's Story...

Sam started coming to Club pretty late in the school year. He and his older brother Reid started coming to Club together through their friend Payton. Once they were there, they were hooked.

I did a promotion for YFC Camp their very first week and handed out flyers and permission slips and the very next week they brought me their forms and their first deposits. They were coming to YFC Camp! I was so excited for them. I had no idea where they were at in their walk with Jesus, but we were about to find out.

Through conversations with Sam at YFC Camp we found out that he previously was not walking with Jesus, and through cabin times and conversations with his leaders God was calling his name. Throughout the week Sam displayed a growing curiosity in who Jesus is, and what the bible is all about.

On the last night Sam gave his life to Jesus, and with brand new bible in hand he proceeded to sit in the nook under the sink for 30 minutes basking in the glory of his bible as he flipped through the pages. He was asking questions such as: “what is proverbs all about?” “Who is Samuel?” “Why are there two books about kings?”

Hearing Sam ask questions like this filled my heart with joy as it is evidence of God instilling a firm curiosity in this new believer’s life. I am so thankful for God’s work in Sam’s life as he can begin to minister to his friends and family.
