Camp Ventana

We recently completed two weeks of Camp Ventana and it was fantastically tiring. The first week we had four awesome guys come from Idyllwild (their group dwindled as the date drew near) and the second week we had forty-two people from San Luis Obispo (represent!) and Hydsville (near Humboldt). The weeks were packed with service projects in the community, authentic Mexican food, learning to “Surrender” (that was our theme) and fellowshipping. I was able to play cribbage with some people from the SLO crew and I was privileged enough to lead worship every night. It was such an amazing time of pouring into high school students and being poured into by them and their leaders.

Collectively we built a fence, dug up a ton of weeds, painted a lot of walls, and constructed a chicken coop. The groups helped local widows, the local rehab center, the elementary school, our church, and local businesses with all the ice cream and soda they bought. It was a very productive two weeks and a lot of people were blessed by the work done. The groups that came also seemed to be crazy blessed by Doug’s messages on Surrender and I heard a lot of awesome stories from the leaders and from the students about how God moved in their lives while here.

To my supporters, thank you for enabling me to be here, your support goes so much farther than just our small Ventana group! Whole communities (Porvenir included) are impacted by your prayers and generosity.
