This summer I got the chance to speak at camp Kadesh. Camp Kadesh is located on Christopher lake and is one of the bigger camps in the area. I was able to speak to 137 junior high students. The theme for the week was "Shift" taken from Romans 12:1-3. I spoke about how to shift their perspective on how they see themselves, how they see God, how they deal with others and how they deal with difficult times. It is always humbling for me when God uses my story to connect to students and to speak into their life. How he is able to truly make something beautiful out of the ashes. I got to sit and listen to a bunch of students and staff was they poured out their hearts to me about the things they were struggling with. I often don't know what to say but try to just lend a listening ear, a compassionate heart, and a genuine prayer.
