​​THANK YOU FOR PRAYING!


…………….. Honestly, that is exactly how I feel about this Winter Weekend.  I am speechless, and our language only scratches the surface of explaining what transpired last weekend.  Words cannot begin to describe how thankful I am for all the prayers and support that WyldLife received. God was alive and well, the enemy had no stronghold this weekend, and I owe part of my thanks to you!

I can say that the most challenging part of this entire weekend was getting out of the middle school parking lot. One would expect some speed bumps when trying to wrangle 104 individuals onto two buses.

Side Note: We should all stop for a second and praise God that we sent 104 adolescents from GenCo to camp. 104 souls were touched this weekend, 104 eyes caught a glimpse of their beautiful Creator, and 104 minds were stirred as they wrestled with the possibility that their “God” is bigger than they perceived.  

After we settled that fiasco and got on the road, we made like an eagle and soared!  Like an avalanche, we poured into camp and made ourselves at home. (see what I did there!) It was beautiful to see a GenCo kid at every turn.  I kid you not, everywhere I went, every building I entered, every corner I turned, I saw a person from our area. However, what made it beautiful was not the fact that we had so many adolescents at camp; what made it beautiful was seeing all of them interacting with people from other areas.  They were not afraid to step out in faith because faith is in abundance up there. There is no need to feel insecure because you feel so secure and safe there. I do not know how to describe it, but Timber Wolf Lake gives off this feeling that can only be understood if you have been there. I believe the best way to describe it is, “Timber Wolf is like a little slice of heaven.”  

I think a solid win for the guys was the WWE fight in the snow; while the girls thought the tubing hill would be a little more safe. I think I can speak on behalf of every middle school kid that went when I say that one of the highlights was the Paul Bunyan that everyone devoured. Nothing at that camp symbolizes WYLD (or sugar coma) better than a mountain of ice cream, candy, cookies, and other surgery substances.  

The food as always was delectable, the clubs were extra crazy, and the cabin times were as expected, Christ Centered. I love how we give these students an opportunity to share whatever is on their heart and allow them to not feel worried about being judged, ridiculed, or having it come back to hurt them.  

I wish I could write to you about everything that went down this weekend, but I will leave you with this. God stirred the souls of about 550 adolescents this weekend. He cultivated the souls who haven’t heard Jesus before. He excavated the thorns and weeds that life has to offer for some, and He planted seeds in those who got the hear the gospel for the first time. He fertilized and watered the seeds that were planted last year; as well as allowing some seeds to germinate as kids accept Jesus into their life. He allowed others to grow in abundance and pruned back those who have been walking with Jesus for some time now this weekend. God was on the move, Jesus was present, and the Holy Spirit made Himself known to every single one of us this weekend… & at the end of the day, that is all that really matters.  

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PRAYERS!  THE ENOCURAGEMENT!  & THE LOVE!  I could not have done this without you.  We could not have done this without The Man Upstairs!  Grace and peace, friends.

 ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Hundreds of our teens are experiencing 
fun, adventure, friendship & 

a sense of significance in Genesee County
For most kids, however, Young Life is simply a person — a person who knows their name and sees something in them that others may not. It's a person who keeps showing up, cheering when things are good and listening when they aren't. It's a person who has followed Jesus Christ into the world of kids, inviting them to more fun, adventure and life than they can imagine. 

Young Life invites you to be that person.
