I can’t even begin to express how great it truly was to have this youth retreat. Even though the whole purpose of this youth camp was specifically for the youth, God didn’t forget about us. Being able to take part of this camp was a good reminder even as a young adult. That God was able to touch even my heart and remind me that the purpose of living this life is to continually glorify him in all ways and to find joy and peace through him. To know that our identity is through him and that we don’t have to live by the “fear of man”.
I’m just so blessed to have been apart of this experience and getting to know the youth more on a deeper level through our small group discussions and our heartfelt talks with one another. As a young adult, I’m encouraged by the love and faithfulness that the youth have for our God. That even at such a young age, I can already see God working in their lives to become the people that God intended them to be. This was truly a humbling experience and I’m just glad I was able to take part of this retreat.
