Pray for JV Kids Camp!

Happening Now
Zack, Nathan and Corban are at camp right now through Sunday!

Now it is time for our JV Kids Camp. This is Bible camp with all the other Josiah Venture missionary kids. This is just another way JV serves us well!

Here is a report from Zacks mentor at Camp.
"I'm serving the same guys as last year, the 11-12 year olds this year. They have matured a lot this year! It's awesome to track with them thru the years and see how they're growing and learning to walk with God. They've stepped up into the older group and I'm seeing them overall rise to the challenge."

They are sleeping in a tent because there are so many JV Kids - praise God! The boys find it awesome. So far they have had nice weather and stayed warm.

Pray for breakthroughs in their walk with God this week. 
Pray for them to continue to go deeper with one another and rely on that community/small group.
~ Pray for the leaders to walk by the Spirit as they lead the kids in discussions, devos, and random things throughout the day. 
~ Thanks for praying!!!

Family Vacation

After Shawn flew home from America we went straight to family vacation before the kids headed off to camp. It was such a blessing to re-connect with each other! Here are some of my favorite pictures. :)

We stayed in an apartment, went rafting, rock climbing, did a high ropes course, zip lined, enjoyed the pool, we all played tennis, and never cooked a meal or washed dishes, but ate great food!!!! We had a blast! And we were extremely blessed to have it all for free... literally!

It was a gift to our family from the owner of the adventure hotel where we hold camp every year. COMPLETELY AMAZING!!!!!!

I read this yesterday in my Bible time and wanted to share it. It blessed and challenged me.
1 Samuel 12:24 "Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart;consider what great things He has done for you."

We pray you are doing well. We would love to get a response and hear how you are doing and how we can pray for you. 

With lots of love,
Shawn and Christena Werdebaugh
