Wow. I read all the prayer requests from the time period I was away. Seems like I missed quite a bit. I'm not trying to bring up sadness from the far past, but I hope all is well with all mentioned. I pray God used everything that happened to strengthen you guys. With some of your responses to it all, it seems like He did.
For a recap of what happened during my absence on the forums:
I worked again at the summer camp that I've been attending for the past 6 years. I was focused on bouncing back from last year (since camp was limited due to the virus). It was difficult reaching the end as it started to grow tiring, but that is when I really relied on God's strength. That was awesome to experience.
I thank you all for the prayers while I was gone. I had quite a few kids that I counseled who were atheist and I debated with each of those guys for a couple hours. Sadly, none of them gave their lives to the Lord the week they were there, but I could see as they were leaving that they were pondering the things they had learned and heard about. Not gonna lie, I was brought to tears when they left. I watched them go knowing the seed was planted. Now it is all up to God.
God was really good to me this summer, guys. It's good to be back though. I'm hoping to bring back the things I've learned and see them happen here at home.
Let's continue to pray for these requests as they come in. God's going to do great things for the remainder of the year!
I'll be praying, my friend!
