We are taking fifty 9th graders from Hope School in Heeraraa to a sports camp in Camp Langano for a week. Camping is a critical element of the overall Sports Friends (organization that runs the camp) strategy and a natural extension of the existing community-based ministry programs. Deep relationships are formed, the good news of God's love is shared, and campers are impacted for eternity. As these young people enjoy sports, games, crafts, music, good food, warm beds, and lots of love, they encounter God in powerful ways. For many campers, they say that camp is the best week of their lives.
As you humbly sacrifice to participate in God's redemptive work, we believe it will be one of the best weeks of your life as well. Anyone who loves working with teens, including teachers, coaches, soccer or volleyball players, college age and up are welcome to participate in this 5 day sports camp with the students. As you help with skits, take pictures, or provide sports instruction, your primary role is simply to lavish God's love upon these young people. In addition, two Venture-supported missionary families work at Camp Langano and this trip is also geared towards visiting and supporting them along with working with the children who attend.
