Day Camp was in full swing today. We wanted to give you some highlights from the day.
The Captain explained the Gospel today. Nicholson, age 14, better known as ‘The Captain’ is the vice president of his high school’s Learner Christian Organization. When Nicholson speaks, his peers listen and they listened intently to his explanation of the gospel. He presented the gospel using a technique that some call “Torn and Restored Heart” where the presenter tears a paper heart apart while asking the kids of examples of what breaks God’s heart. When an adult chimed in with an example, this 14 year old so respectfully responded, “Please, I want the children to answer.” The kids gave great examples of lying, fighting, drugs, etc. As the kids give their answers the heart is torn into pieces. Then ‘The Captain’ speaks of what Jesus has done for us on the cross and he now unfolds a fully restored heart.
