Sunday, Aug. 16, had been long in coming for the campers and staff of this year’s youth camp in Accra, Ghana. When it finally arrived, we converged at the Valley View University campus just outside Accra with palpable zest.
In the beautiful settings of the women’s center of the university, the theme of “Be Like Our Heavenly Father” provided the perfect motivation for bonding, singing, shooting arrows in archery class, playing various field games, learning leather craft and weaving baskets.
Lively fellowshipping characterized the interaction among campers and staff. God’s blessings were manifest in the few cases of injury, excellent weather and protection throughout the seven-day event.
All through camp, compass checks and Christian living classes provided tremendous daily boosters.
On Sunday, Aug. 23, 80 grateful hearts departed back to the four scattered Ghana congregations, looking forward to next year’s camp!
