Creating Friendships

The week of KSMC you will have the opportunity to help kids develop friendships they can have for a lifetime. You never know the moment or if the friendship will develop right away.

I first started volunteering in the nursery at Faith under Jodie in 2008 and we both worked KSMC but it wasn’t until the last couple of years that our friendship has become close. 

We pray you take this week to help plant seeds into our campers lives. One of the best ways is by example. “Be kind to one another…”

Make every staffer your best friend.  Jodie and I will text each other almost every day just to say hi.  It amazes me how sometimes it comes through at just the right time.  It’s nice to know that someone is thinking of you.

You will also have the opportunity to help lead campers to their very best friend… JESUS. 

The KSMC song “For All Who Call Upon His Name” says, “Believe in your heart JESUS is Lord, confess with your mouth God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved.”

These precious kids lives and hearts are so hungry and most of them don’t know what that hunger is about. WE GET TO TELL THEM!!!

One child will get to memorize the following verse to say during the song: 

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through Faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is a gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Pray that God will make you extra sensitive to what He wants you to do and say, especially during KSMC. 

 Tons of Love and prayers to you all!

Jodie and Terrie 

Challenge: At the end of day two of KSMC choose a fellow staffer or two or all and text them “JESUS loves you and so do I!”
