SMITE Youth Camp
April 25-29, we conducted a SMITE (Student Missions Institute for Training in Evangelism) youth camp. Three pastors came from Nigeria to help with the teaching, preaching, and training. We had a total of 109 campers from 5 different churches who participated. Each morning we had classes to teach the campers how to conduct Bible Clubs. Each afternoon our campers went into the community and conducted Bible Clubs. Each evening we had preaching services to motivate our campers to surrender their lives to Christ and to serve Him. It was a phenomenal week! We conducted 18 Bible Clubs each day; a total of 971 children attended, and 421 children professed faith in Christ! Many of the campers made decisions to be soul winners and to be part of the Bible Club ministry in their churches! We now have 4 Bible Clubs that are being conducted on a weekly basis by the workers in our church!
Please pray for us as we begin preaching tomorrow in a new junior high school, which has over 900 students. We will have 12 preachers preaching to 12 classes at the same time. We will be able to preach to them for 5 consecutive weeks. Pray that many students will be saved.
