All glory and praise to our God for this year’s Agape Youth Bible Camp, August 9 – August 12, 2019.
Long-awaited and much anticipated, 5th annual Agape Youth Bible Camp (AYBC) commenced this August for the members of Agape Youth. This year, 12 members of the New Hope Fellowship from New York, USA came to Namibia to team with the full-term missionaries presently serving in Namibia to provide and conduct AYBC for the members of Agape Youth.
In attendance were 103 members of Agape Youth, and for 4 days and 3 nights, the members of the AY were blessed with a time of great fellowship and worship. As the theme of “Come and Behold”, the AY members were fed both physically and spiritually with the Word of God preached by Rob Freire, pastor of New Hope Fellowship and Steven Hong, pastor/director of Agape Youth, and were encouraged by the testimonies shared by the members of New Hope team. The youth experienced the presence of God during their time of praise and prayer, seminars, small group discussions and time of solitude. The youths were allowed to be kids enjoying the time of recreations like games, swimming, and leisure. Most importantly, many came to the saving knowledge of the Lord and accepted Christ as the Lord of their lives and others reaffirmed their commitment to God. We praise God for all that He had accomplished this year in the lives of the youths at AYBC for His glory. We praise God for the members of the New Hope team, for their dedication and passion for the gospel and the love for the youths of AY. Thank you for sharing your time, resources, and lives with us!!
Praise and Worship were filled with much singing and at times dancing for the Lord!!
The Word of God was spoken powerfully and the seminars were effective and beneficial to the youth.
Thankful to the members of the New Hope Team for sharing their testimonies at AYBC.
The youth had the time of their lives!! Special thanks for insightful and fun games, the kids really had a good time.
But most importantly, the most treasured time of prayer for the members of AY where they met God and behold Him. Thank God for calling and saving the souls of those that accepted His gift and we continue to encourage and disciple these members to grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus for His glory and honor.
Praise God for an amazing, blessed Agape Youth Bible Camp!! To Him be all the Glory and Honor!
I will be coming home soon!!
God willing, I will be coming back home to the US in a couple of months. I am in the process of joining the Pioneers mission agency. I will be in Orlando for a week in January to participate in the Pioneers EXPLORE session. If everything works out I will be returning to Orlando for the LAUNCH session to be sent back to Namibia. I will keep you updated as my schedules are more confirmed. I look forward to reconnecting with more of you.
