Testimonials from National Camp 2014

An Awesome Experience !

This is my first time at camp and definitely won’t be the last – hurry up 2015. National camp has been an awesome experience. National camp to me is a ‘piece of heaven’. I don’t feel any shame here, because I am among lots of people in similar situations. The love of Jesus Christ is so evident, and being here is a beautiful expression of His Love.

I experienced the love of God in such depth

The camp was brilliant because God was there almost to the point there was little room for anything else. I don't recall that I have ever experienced the love of God in such depth. The theme was encapsulated in this song by Matthew West, “My Name Is" that probably most of you know well that really was about 'what people have said about us that hurts’ - and following that 'who does God say that I am?' I suspect that if all the other 300 campers felt as I do, there would easily be a thousand-page book of testimonies about what God did at camp in our lives, confirming that He loves us and is for us, warts and all.

The secret of keeping that 'camp feeling' is to keep our focus on God and His Word and what He is saying to us. If the emotions of a camp wear off after two or three days, it's safe to say that ten days after camp, right back in the reality of home and work, there's something permanent going on in me and others. That song is still stuck in my heart. And a couple of nights ago Mel, who has cerebral palsy and can barely talk, and who came to the camp, let us know it was the same with her too.

A very amazing experience and one I shall never forget.

I was in the auditorium during praise and worship and I became aware of a "different sound". Upon noticing it got slightly louder and I could hear it a lot more clearly. Words cannot describe the beauty in this sound. It was the most harmonious and holy sound I have ever heard. It was drifting down from the rafters and I have little doubt it was the sound of angels worshipping with us. I experienced this the following day as well and was overwhelmed with the beauty. A very amazing experience and one I shall never forget.
