Friends, thank you so much for your prayers. English for Kids is the highlight of my year and I love your teens! Directing a staff of willing volunteers is like sailing before the wind…
This was my fourth year at English for Kids, my second year in sports, and my first year as a leader. I was the Sports Leader, along with my assistant Alyssa Lagee. There was a heatwave going on during the first three days of camp, but that didn’t stop us…
A sweet girl of about 9 came up to me on Tuesday with a huge hug and “Thank you so much! I love English camp!” Some priceless moments like this balance out the nitty gritty details and coordination “weeds” that come with our labor…
Each summer, a team from the Presbytery of New York and New England conducts a week-long Bible-centered, English-immersion day camp for children in St-Georges de Beauce, Quebec . . .
I think this year topped any other year that I have been on this trip. Seeing old friends, meeting new ones, working with the kids in my class for eight hours a day, and serving our Lord and Savior . . .
Looking back on English for Kids Bible Camp 2017 (in St-Georges de Beauce, Quebec), I think if there was one word that could summarize the entire trip from beginning to end, it would be: grateful . . .
(Testimonial: English for Kids Bible Camp) When I looked at it as “HOW AM I” going to do it, it seemed like a virtually impossible task, but when I looked at it as “GOD CAN,” it didn’t seem nearly as impossible. It wasn’t my love, my strength, my words, or any of me that would be able to care for
I was blessed to be in the position of teacher to those children who taught me much themselves. God is going to see new life sown, watered, and grown as He wills. Nothing can stop His kingdom, for His Word will be heard wherever and to whomever He wishes, and work its way powerfully into people’s lives throughout the whole
One of the leaders of the English for Kids Bible Camp taking place in St-Georges de Beauce, Quebec, sends out a daily newsletter to keep all those supporting and praying for the camp up to date . . .
Jesus is being taught to all the nations and we need Him to shine His face upon us as we serve Him in this way. Look to Him in missions, not yourself. Look to Him from whom all blessings flow . . .
In St Georges, the English camp is a wonderful week of fellowship and service for the American and French teams, and growth for the teens learning to lead and work together . . .
Our week’s theme was David and Goliath and the theme verse was “The LORD your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you” (Dt. 20:4 ). The teachers tried to explain that Jesus, like David, fights for us against our enemies of sin and death . . .
The Lord grew me while helping in Quebec and helped me to step outside my comfort zone. It was hard to help teach classes. It was hard to interact with the children. It was hard to be tired all the time. But the Lord helped me through and I am so glad I went . . .
The children at the camp learned that the Bible is God’s truth, they memorized some of its verses, and they sang songs of God’s love. Even more, they saw men and women of all ages travel across a national border to bring them not only fun and education, but, clearly and sincerely, Christ’s love . . .
I’m also thankful for Christian teens showing strong ability to learn, adapt, and serve in their first tough leadership experiences. Planning, teaching and managing a classroom of kids is an adult tasks, and the learning curve is very steep as these teens adapt to the challenge day by day . . .
