This SCM 2010 has totally impacted our staff and volunteers. Even though many of us are tired and feeling the effects in our physical bodies, conversations still roar throughout the office about how amazing this camp meeting has been!
From the music, to the funny speakers, to Pastor Joel’s amazing testimony, everyone here has been changed by this camp meeting; so many got touched by the power of God. I have heard so many people make the comment that they will never be the same because of this camp meeting. Everyone I am sure has their personal story to tell about what the camp meeting has done for them, but the resonating theme throughout the RMI community is that we have all been called for a purpose. That we are a part of an awesome ministry and no matter what we face in our lives, we must continue on. That God has called us for such a time as this, and we will go through things in life; but as long as we remain obedient to what He has told us to do, we will be fine.
As mentioned earlier, many of us are suffering from fatigue and exhaustion (smile) that’s usually what comes when you enjoy every service! But the one thing I know, no matter how tired we feel, or how drained our bodies are, we would not trade this experience for anything. I remember speaking to a former intern and we were saying that we couldn’t tell one day from the next, but that it didn’t really matter. Our lives are being changed and touched by the power of God!
This camp meeting also showed the staff, within our diverse setting, that God does not have a particular person He wants to use, or someone who looks a particular way, but those who are willing and obedient! Nothing more, noting less!
