When we look back on our relationship of knowing and being known by God, there are milestones and breakthrough moments.
Helping with camps at ZOE means that our team gets to be a part of those breakthrough moments for the children and youth ZOE rescues. We have the privilege of helping children and youth experience and understand God on a deeper level than they have before. We help peel back the curtain a little bit more and watch as God reveals His heart and love for each and every one of them.
This October’s camp theme was Transforming Faith, based on the Transformers movies that so many of our kids have seen! We talked about the transformation from sinner to saved, sadness to joy, and the foundational truth that faith has a way of transforming everything.
Camp this year was a small piece of that transformation process for our kids and youth! Whether it was in moments of fellowship and fun, or teachings and object lessons, or powerful moments of worship (some of our youth led worship this year!), or the giant transformer we made from cardboard boxes, each piece was prayerfully planned out to help facilitate healing and transformation.
Children rededicated their lives to Jesus, some accepted Him for the first time, others were overwhelmed by the love of God as their eyes were opened to what Jesus did on the cross, some were even asking how to share the gospel in the red light district where they were once exploited. Praise God for more breakthrough moments.
