The camp ministry is one of the most effective tools of evangelism that we have in Ukraine. It results in relatives being saved, more people attending the local church, and one day, Lord willing, students at SBI.
The camps last for 10 days, and for 30 US dollars, we can send a young person to camp to hear the gospel. Many of them for the very first time. It's not unusual to have over half of the campers unsaved. We once had a camp with all 84 campers unsaved. Many of these young people are straight off the street. They are without mothers and fathers, and any kind of home except a cardboard box. We have a couple of students at SBI who have come through that kind of life.
This summer, our camp ministry reached 1,000 young people with the Gospel story. We do not have a total of how many trusted Christ as their Saviour, but it was at least 300-400 and the final count may be well over 400.
To God be the glory, great things He hath done!
