Jenny, Tom and David joined the Powerpack team at River Camp in Evesham, UK...
Here's what some of the children said...
God was telling me with fire and said to me that I have to spread God’s word to others. Eleana, 10
Jesus is putting my bad things in the bin. Bethany, 6
In the Encounter Zone when I washed my hands God said to me that I could be myself not somebody else. Ceri, 10
God thank you for all you’re doing in me. You’re my favourite now. Lydia, 5
God said that I was special. Levi, 6
We prayed for Chris as her knees have been hurting, for a long time and she may need an operation if it gets worse. After praying she said that the pain has gone at the moment! Ella & Ruby, 9
I love you God, lots and lots and lots. Matthew 5
God said he wanted to give me a big hug. Nicky, 5
This year was the first RIVER Camp for Powerpack. Heather led the 8-10s group ‘Catching The FIre.’ Looking at the life of Elijah, Man of fire and discovering how God’s fire can transform their lives. Nick led the 5-7s group with ‘God Is In The House’ exploring our relationship with Father God, through rooms in house e.g. the living room is a place to chat, bathroom a place to get clean, dining room and study a place to be fed by Spirit and Word respectively.
Having had a great week we led a small section in the Big Top. We entered to Gonna Be A Powerpack, Nick and two children shared how each room had helped them discover God’s love and how we can hear His Spirit talk to us in so many ways. We led the adults singing Undefeated Champion. Heather shared testimonies with some children who had a calling to be missionaries, had seen a leader healed and had heard God speak to them. We finished with Arise My Love ‘God Rod’ presentation – this was very powerful as it changed from a show to become worship in the tent.
What did parents say?...
I just wanted to say thank you for giving her such a wonderful time, she is absolutely buzzing with all that God said and did and she really experienced him for herself, which is ultimately all as a parent we could have ever hoped for. She has a new urgency to speak to people about Jesus and an understanding that she is not on her own in doing so.
Firstly a big thank you to all the powerpack team. For the last 3 months our daughter has refused to go to her lively Sunday School so it was nothing short of a miracle that she was more than happy to be left in a tent in a field with people she didn’t know!!
Not only do we thank you for all your hard work, but whoever declared over her ‘that she is God’s chosen child and that she is unique and significant’..and ‘that God would take away her fears’ .. needs to know they were absolutely spot on!!
