Our Workcamp crew returned last Saturday from Vandalia, Illinois. They spent their week being the hands and feet of Jesus. Here are quotes from some of our young people:

I loved meeting new people from many different states and getting to know the residents we worked for. ~ Nolan A. (first time participant)

Everyday I continue to grow in my relationship with God. ~ Annabelle E. (first time participant)

Workcamp allowed me to have an environment in which to grow my faith for a week. Also the faithful people who supported me through some of the hard times is why I love workcamp. ~ Joey S. (first time participant)

I encountered Jesus through the little things people said or did, especially my residents. It taught me to look deeper in life and appreciate all the things God has given me. ~ Caroline J. (4th workcamp)

At Workcamp, I met new friends and got to know old ones better. I served the Lord by helping those in need and had an immeasurable amount of fun while doing it. I felt the Holy Spirit in everyone and everything, right up until the moment I got out of my car at home. Workcamp changed my life forever, and I accredit God and our youth group for that. ~ John H. (first time participant)

Workcamp never fails to give me a week with only happiness. ~ Emily E. (4th workcamp)

Workcamp is a great way to experience faith outside of our community, so that we can bring it back in and expand our community’s love of Jesus and His love. ~ Joe J. (2nd workcamp)
