From the Staff Member’s Desk…
Fall is my favorite season of the year. I don’t know if it’s the cooler weather, the leaves changing on the trees, deer season or just the fact that my birthday is in November but I just love it! This is my first time spending the whole fall season here on the mountain and it has been jam packed with work projects, retreat groups and even 2 fall camp weeks.
One reason camp ministry is very important is that it can draw lots of young people in that never may have wanted to step foot inside of a “church building”. Camp gives them an opportunity to hear the Gospel preached and surrender their lives to Christ. I know that MTYC is reaching people and making a difference in many lives today. A few weeks ago I was eating at Applebee’s when the waitress noticed my MTYC shirt and told me how she used to come as a young camper until she was about 14. She said she was graduating from high school this year and was sad that she had outgrown the camp weeks. Her day was brightened when I shared with her about Extreme Weekend, our fall retreat for young adults. Now she is looking forward to coming back next fall. With all the busyness coming up in these approaching holiday weeks please don’t forget the ministry at MTYC in your prayers.
“Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” Psalms 90:1-2
It’s not too early to begin thinking about how you can serve at MTYC during the 2013 summer!!!
