June Update

Hello everyone!

As June is coming to a close, we take some time to reflect back on the events of the summer so far. God has been incredibly faithful to guide the camp staff and to protect us from anything that might hinder our campers from coming closer to Him. Hurricane season is in full-swing, and we have not had any stormy weather, enabling each camp that has come to continue with their schedules. We have had many salvations and have seen so many lives impacted by the love of Jesus Christ. As we still have over a month remaining in our summer camp season, there is still time for us to share the Gospel. Please keep the camp staffers in your prayers as they work long hours in the Texas heat in order to serve their Savior. Please pray for each and every camper that they will nurture a personal relationship with Christ because of their camp experience. Please pray for the adult sponsors at each camp to have the Lord's guidance in leading our young people onto the path of Christ. Please pray that the Lord will continue to protect us from inclement weather. Above all, please pray that the will of God will be our guide and that He will accomplish His perfect plan at Texas Baptist Encampment.
