Monumental Moments In Life

I got home yesterday from preaching a 3-night rally in Colorado. I like the emphasis on kicking off the school year right—with Bible preaching! Today, I’ll be re-preaching all three sermons (not all in Sunday school!) as we think about starting the year strong. Each day is a new beginning […]

  • Saturday. Final day of camp: have your stuff packed and in its place (will be announced at camp) before breakfast.

PRAYER

Every week I try to write a note in our announcement sheets for class, and last week I encouraged them to pray. My desire is that they arrive at camp already open to what God has for them, and that they allow God to work on their hearts from day one. I included the note below:

Pray

 

Ironwood is next, next week!! (July 9-14)

I can’t wait! As long as Abe doesn’t come early, I’ll be there all week with you, and I want it to be the  best week of your summer! Every year before camp one of my goals is that you go to camp ready to eat up the preaching.

Know what I mean by that? I mean, eager to get your “toes stepped on” about some areas in your life. I mean, edge-of-your-seat type anticipation of what GOD will do with your future! I fear that sometimes I dream bigger for you than you do! I want you to go to camp this year with totally open hearts, willing to let Him do anything He wants with you.

If you’re not saved, get saved! That’s the biggest thing! If you’re not baptized, tell me! We’ll get you baptized as soon as possible! If you’re holding on to something, let it go! If you’re just floating through life kind of aloof, choose to become a passionate person… for God! He’s worth every bit of passion you have, so choose Him.

How do you go to camp like that? The title says it all: Pray.

Are you praying for camp? I am. I’m praying specifically for all of you, and I have specific things I am hoping God will do, especially in some of your lives. Some of you I don’t know well and I’m just asking God to bless and help you have open hearts. Others of you I’m praying that God will call to Bible college, God will call to preach, or that you’ll finally see certain spiritual needs in your life.

Pray now, and all week, for God to use this week of camp to spiritually strengthen you. He might not need to make huge life-changing decisions in you… then again, maybe He does. Just be open to Him.

I’m super excited that we’ve recently added some, and now we’re taking 43 to camp! That’s awesome. Ranger Rench (my brother Garret) says that Ironwood always says that the spirit of our group is a blessing to the camp, and because we’re one of the biggest groups going this year, we need to always try to enhance the spirit… never detract from it.

Are you excited?! I am!! Couple more weeks, grr. 🙂  -Bro. Ryan
