Yes, it’s official….we had a great camp from July 25-28th with almost 40 campers and staff enjoying 4 days on top of Mt. Akagi. Thanks for your prayers. The weather, though not sunny much of the time cooperated enough to allow us to have our outdoor BBQ and other activities. Pastor Ali Lejaian, former captain of the Iranian Olympic soccer team was our special speaker, sharing with the children about the great theme of forgiveness. (He shows up a couple times in the video below….. playing indoor soccer with the children…. and wearing a pink shirt) There were children who decided for the first time to believe in Jesus and some who made the decision to be baptized. We praise God for these miracles of new life. Here’s a 10 minute video that will give you a glimpse into our time together. In the soundtrack are two songs that the children sang and recorded onto a CD while they were at camp. (Scroll down below the video to see a few photos as well.)
