The youth ministry here is not easy. Well, I don't think it's easy anywhere. But sometimes I feel like we're not going forward. Like we're just maintaining what we got and not expanding and reaching new levels. But I was encouraged recently by the youth camp. We had such a great time. I was able to see the youth go to a new level with God. I was encouraged to see them worshipping and surrending to God. Intimacy with God is where it all starts. I also realized that God is the one in charge. He is the only one that can change people. He is the only one that can heal their hurts and the only one that can make them draw closer to Himself. All I need to do is be obedient to what he would have me do. I thank God for the youth here. They have encouraged me without them knowing it.
