Tribulation happens in all of our lives as Christ said it would to His followers. God knows our suffering and His gift to us is comfort. When we suffer and are comforted, we are learning how to comfort others as God comforts us. Our tragedies can become great blessings for others, if we imitate our Creator in comforting those around us, who face similar trials.

Contemplating the universe, with all of its complexity and vastness, leaves little room for doubt that it was designed by an all-powerful Creator. God wants to share some of His power, His Spirit, with us to help us overcome this life and become more like Him.

There is no partiality in The Zone. Everyone is accepted for the unique individual they are, as all work towards the common goal of living by God's ways. Campers are never put down, but built up and encouraged as they improve their skills in an inclusive environment.
