Swamp Corps took camp culture to South Africa starting back in 2011, and now four years later, camp training is taking place in both Kenya and Zimbabwe! It is incredible the way God has moved to make this possible! Here is a message from Jesse McKay about their experience in Kenya two weeks ago:
"Kenya was crazy! We had a camp retreat for two and a half days. This was the first time the Kenyans had a camp with counselors so it was a new thing for everyone! That brought its challenges, but even in such a short time, camp still happened! At first the campers were timid and held back but by the end of the camp they were having fun and didn't want to leave!
"The singing devotional was AMAZING! The kids held nothing back and we sang and danced and praised God in such a great way! Amos and Kiki, the camp directors in Kenya, loved seeing camp happen in their country and I know they're excited for an official Swamp Corps trip to have a lot of Americans help bring camp!"
Definitely encouraging to hear from Jesse and how him and the team have been able to be a part of the camp experience in Kenya! Last week they were in Zimbabwe for ZimCamp, and I look forward to hearing about the stories and special moments there as well!
Coming up in just 18 days, a Swamp Corps team will be headed to Managua, Nicaragua for their inaugural year of camp! All of us going on the trip are getting more and more excited by the hour! Around 100 kids in Central America are signed up to be at camp for the week, which is really awesome! Definitely keep this trip in your prayers, as well as the team headed back from Africa!
Until next week,
Dec. 29-Jan. 1
