The Light Shines As The Tanzania Christian Camp Influences Young People...

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

We all as Christians are commanded to live our lives in a way that many may come to know Christ. This is not optional, but rather a command. Through our actions and speech people will know us as those knew Peter in the days when Jesus was being persecuted.

This statement is true then and now. As we finished the year 2015 the Lord surprised us with great gifts of adding 19 new souls to us through the Tanzania Christian Camp. 

This is the Camp conducted by ACSOP with the collaboration of brothers from the States. In this camp, youth invite their fellow youth who are not Christians. Through the week of studying, playing, and showing Christ through our actions and speech to those who are non-Christians, then they will want to be like us, and that is possible only through the washing and the renewal of their souls by baptism. This past year, 2015, we had around 136 campers. 

The main target of this camp is to teach youth at their early age, so that they can have more time to serve God. If a person obeys at the age of 13-14 years, he or she has a better chance to teach more people in his/her life than the person who obeys when he/she is in his 60’s.

All these and many other things have been possible only through your prayers and support. May the Lord continue to bless you beyond measure in this new year.

Please keep praying for our fellow soldier and father of many in the faith, Cy Stafford, as he continues with his treatments for Leukemia.
