Our group of Young Life staff, volunteer leaders, and friends will be helping the local staff run the YL Kenya camp for 500 kids!
Just as we bring kids to Young Life camp here in the States, leaders from all over Africa have been living life with their high school friends and are preparing to take them to camp in their own country. In the summer of 2011, I had the opportunity to go with a group of Young Life staff and leaders to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe to help put on a camp for five hundred kids. It was truly an amazing experience made possible by everyone who donated and prayed for us last time. We were able to make an impact on kids in a country who desperately needs to know God's love and grace.
Once again, I have been blessed with the opportunity to return to Africa and help make the “Best Week of Your Life" a reality for hundreds of kids in Mombassa, Kenya. We will be flying there on August, 10th, and while we are there our job will be to act as a work crew: serving food to campers, setting up club and activities, as well as many other things. For many of these kids, it will be there first time they experience a family style meal, clean sheets, and soap. The list goes on, but most importantly, it may be the first time they hear about the unconditional love of Christ.
