This past spring break, I went on a mission trip called Camop Nikos. If you aren’t familiar with this, it is an all youth mission trip where you go and help at risk children in East Austin that suffer from abuse, assult, poverty, among other things. The goal of the mission trip is to be a kid’s friend and counselor, but also to engage in a spiritual conversation and try to lead them to Christ.
The camp is a 5 day camp, and the campers attend activities such as swimming, art, ziplining, and others. I had fun caring for my camper and takling to them, but it was also very tiring and draining. I learned a lot by caring for someone, and I understood how prents or teachers feel when they try to care for a person that might be a little difficult. I also learned about how we are to God and how he will chase after us even when we run away.
This camp was a great experience for me to grow spriritually and mentally. I feel that I have gotten a lot more responsible throughout this experience and I will probaby be going year after year. if you want to go search up mission possible cCmp Nikos
So, if you didn’t know, I go to church as ACC (Austin Chinese Church), and every year, the grades 6-12 get together and go on a 3 day retreat to have fun and learn about God.
I’ve been going for two years, and I think that it is a great way to relax, have fun, and learn about God. Even if you are not a christian, I encourage you to go, because you can find out about christianity, and hopefully, you can be moved and become a christian too.
Last year the theme was “Rooted” and I was really moved by the sermons and the lessons. I felt that I had come to truly start to understand the great deeds that God has done, and that I started to grasp the concept of how great our God is.
Again, I really encourage you to go and I am going to leave you off with these bible verses.
17 “So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
