Cultivate: Service Above Self

Jul 26, 2015 | Camp:

Today was an interesting day for Cultivate! It started with breakfast and hanging out at the Ricochet, our barn swing. We had lunch, prayer walked camp and then helped welcome all of the week 9 campers by jumping in the gauntlet! Cultivate lined up behind the counselors and jumped for 60 cars!!! Pops, the Cultivate Program Director encouraged everyone to keep their eyebrows up and let the joy of the Lord be their strength as we cheered for all the cars driving by.

After a bit of rest and playing games in the Walkabout, we went over to Silverado to have dinner with them and help with their holiday themed game night. It was really fun to see all the little kids running around with their counselors in their costumes which ranged from Christmas and St. Patricks Day, to Your Birthday and Father’s Day. Then the oldest two Cultivate groups stayed to help run Silverado’s “Happy Holidaze” games, and the rest of the groups came back to the Outback to play a fun game together.


Later, we all gathered in the Boomerang for a Cultivate-only, mid-session camper share. At the end of this week the Cultivate campers will have an opportunity to share what they learned in these two weeks with all of camp, but tonight they had the opportunity to share what God has done in just one week. It was awesome hearing the stories showing how God is already changing hearts, and we’re excited to see what this next week will bring.

Please pray with us.

  1. Pray that campers would stay focused and have patience with each other.
  2. Pray for campers to have hearts for service.
  3. Pray that God would continue to call campers to Himself.
