Hey everyone, I’d like to share my experience at the Impact Youth camp! To sum it up in one word, it was “EPIC.” I used to be the bookworm who sat in the corner with a book and not participate actively in games, but after this camp, I am taking part in everything. I am on fire!
The highlight of the camp for me was the ministry night. I never thought I’d be the type to pray for someone, but there was something different about praying for my friends. I felt like I was part of something much bigger than myself and it was incredibly powerful.
During one of the prayer times, I experienced God in a really special way. I’ve always believed in God and known that He’s real, but I’ve never felt His presence so strongly before. I felt a deep sense of peace and joy wash over me, and I knew that God was with me at that moment. It was a really beautiful experience.
And don’t get me started on the late-night chats with my roommates. We shared the funniest and most shocking stories, and I’ll remember them forever. It was like being part of a sleepover party, except with more laughter and much more fun.
At the camp, the speaker talked about surrendering our plans to God. I used to be so anxious and stressed about not fitting in or being left out, but after hearing from the speakers, I learned to let go and trust in God’s plan. It was like a weight lifted off my shoulders, and I felt so free and alive!
But the best part of the camp? The community. I made some of the most amazing and funniest friends who I know will always have my back. Being part of a squad of believers is like having a built-in support system, and I’m grateful for every moment that I got to spend with them.
Thanks for letting me share my epic adventure with you, and I hope it encourages you in your own faith journey!
