There were positive reports from Evangelical Movement of Wales summer camps.
In Woodcroft, led by Tim Morrison, Beth Lewis and Ed Collier, there had been many young campers who had never been before, and arrived ‘looking scared’. However, according to Tim Morrison, all of them settled in ‘really well’ and there was a ‘good atmosphere on the camp’, with many attending the early morning quiet times and ‘seeking to start the day in the Word’.
He said, ‘Chaplain Ed has been taking us through the story of Jonah, which seems to have connected with a good number of campers. Officers have sought to reinforce the main message during dorm times and reported lively discussions and a good number of campers asking genuine questions’.
A good atmosphere was also prevalent at Pentrenant Hall camp, led by Steve Davies, Ann Powell and John Perry. Ann Powell said, ‘Thank God for a happy and united camp. There have been some good friendships made. Praise God for honesty from the campers about their position before God’.
At Bryn-y-Groes, Bala, in the camp led by Andy Taylor, Wendy Taylor and Jeremy Bailey, there were many campers close to making a commitment to Jesus, but there were others experiencing ‘trouble in their home churches’.
In the newsletter, all leaders asked for continued prayer, although the camps have now finished for the summer.
