Youth Camp Report 2019
Greeting to all the Brethren across the world, It is my pleasure to once again give a report for 2019 Ndhiwa youth camp, We all know that we are really leaving in very deceived world that if we don’t train the youths to grow and walk in Christ, then they may be influenced into doing what others who don’t obey God does.The only way young men and women clean their ways is by doing the will of God “Psalm 119:9”( How can a young man clean His way? By taking heed according to your word)
The only way to be sure that we are strong in Christ is by doing what the bible says in “Psalm 1:1-2” (Blessed in the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly not stand in the path of sinners not sits in the seat of scornful But his delight is in the law of the Lord and and in His law he meditates day and night)
Many are turning away from God and no longer want to listen neither do they read nor obey God’s commandment , during the youth camp, The Ten commandments in Exodus 20:1-17 was touched elaborately and I believe those who attend this camp received something to help them in their spiritual lives. Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it”
Psalm 127:3-4 “Behold children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward . Like arrows in the hand of a warrior so are the children in one’s youth.”
We should train our young boys and girls to be closer to God in this deceived world so that we may one day be glad and rejoice when Christ return and find us worthy to be part of his Kingdom. Matthew 19:14 “ But Jesus said, let the children come to me and do not forbid them for of such is the kingdom of heaven”
Even though there was too much rain, many got the opportunity to attend the camp. Our youth from Kissi, Migori and Giribe hard to walk from Ndhiwa town to the site in Sigama area which is roughly, 7kilometers. NO vehicles could access the area due to bad roads plus too much rain but we sincerely thank God that the camp went on so well and all from the camp arrived back to their various places safely and we thank God.
Have attached some few photos we took during the camp.
Pastor Tiongik Sawek sent the following related to another of the youth camps:
Receive greetings from Chilani church, the youth camp was very blessed. We were very happy on the arrangement of the meeting with Evangelist Ochieng since the meeting went through successfully. Because the Kipsigis and the Maasai are deeply rooted in culture and we saw that it was good for us to assemble youth so as to teach them on right ways of Christ, thanks to the continuing church of God which accepted to support this meeting through Evangelist Ochieng. It was not only us who appreciate but the entire Rift valley; including the groups of Mau, Bomet, Molo, Njoro, Chilani and Kericho Chebirbelek. There was a lot of rain but we managed to receive youths from Sunday churches and other churches who join us in the continuing church of God and promised to continue with us as they have receive blessed lessons.
There were also women teachers who took greater part in mentoring the female youth on how to cope up with various challenges facing the youths.
Pray also for the church of Kabolecho because during this rainy season, they are conducting Sabbath service in their houses. So let us all pray to this local church so that may even get a place to shelter. They were happy when I told them on how we have already talk with Evangelist Ochieng of soon upcoming support to them.
Herewith are the photos I managed to take during the meeting.
May God bless you abundantly
The end time work includes turning the hearts of the fathers to the children and children to the fathers (Malachi 4:6), and youth camps are one way to help fulfill that.
