Swimming, ziplining, trampolining, fun activities and delicious treats help to create the most wonderful time of the summer. The Bible teachings have an incredible impact, with God’s salvation through Jesus Christ the foundation of all the teaching – and forgiveness, kindness, acceptance, friendship, prayer, obedience, joy, and love all emphasised too.
Cristina has seen for herself the impact of summer camp on the children. She shared the story of Andreea, 15, who was severely burnt after being electrocuted playing with friends at a train station.
Cristina said, “Andreea was burned on 40% of the right side of her body and needed months of treatment and therapy.
“During her recovery, Andreea thought about all the teaching she’d heard at summer camps and Christian events and gave her life to God, feeling grateful that her life had been spared. While humbly sharing her story at summer camp, children all over the room started crying and asking for prayer. Five of them even ended up giving their life to God.”
In 2020, MWB’s summer camps in Romania were cancelled for the first time in its history because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The children were deeply disappointed, but they had a great idea in one community in Mures county.
“Some kids gathered on their village streets and divided themselves into playing ‘volunteer’ or ‘participant’. They started playing summer camp – and soon their day was filled with fun and songs they’d learned last summer,” Cristina said. “You can leave camp, but camp never seems to leave you.”
With your support, we can send more children from backgrounds of poverty to summer camp and give them the chance to have a holiday filled with joy.
At MWB’s summer camps, the atmosphere of God’s love and compassion, the fun activities, and the beautiful environment has given many children a fresh perspective and transformed their lives.
Your donation today would make it possible for another child to attend camp and find a safe place to play this summer. Thank you for your generosity.
