It is hard to believe but our summer training programs have all wrapped up. We had almost 300 people at Deep Camp, 17 Experience students (college and up) and 17 Surge students. In particular this year, the Surge group (high school students) really stood out. These young people were engaging, and were willing to humbly be stretched in new and significant ways. For some, the cycle of family dysfunction and brokenness that has existed for decades is now being broken.
Throughout the summer we saw God break down walls and give new vision for lives fueled with purpose and meaning. We witnessed the moving of the Holy Spirit in people young and old as they surrendered in deep ways to God. One student, who has had a very difficult life said: “I have started to get my smile back”. The privilege we have to come along side these students, engage them in times of exploration and watch God do His thing is only possible because we have partners in this work – you! Your prayers and financial gifts are being used by God to reach around the world. These new Kingdom Laborers will be the hands and feet of Jesus both here in the U.S. and in some of the darkest places on earth. The Kingdom is advancing!
With deep gratitude, Ron and Lorene
