A Change in Perspective 

Kaylee worked as a camp counselor here this summer.  Her church came for a retreat recently and she told me, “Working at camp really changed my perspective on life.”  I emailed her the other day to ask her if she would care to elaborate.  Her response is below:

“Camp totally changed my perspective on life because it taught me that there’s more to life than just saying you’re a believer.  You gotta act on it. As Christians we have this gift that no one else has, the gift of salvation, and it’s our job to share the best gift in the whole world with people who don’t have it. If we don’t share that gift we aren’t doing what we’re called to do.

Another way camp has changed my perspective on life is that I’m not as scared to go out of my way to help people. At camp I was surrounded by so many wonderful people that would go out of their way to help anyone out, whether it was a spoken word or a silent prayer. It helped build the staff up to be a community of brothers and sisters in Christ (pretty ironic considering the theme was Dive into Community this summer)…a huge extended family.

I was a camper for six years before I became a counselor, and even then it impacted my life greatly. I think it’s safe to say that without camp I wouldn’t be nearly as far in my relationship with God as I am today.  Camp is a place filled with love and awesome Godly people, and the perfect place to start, build, and maintain your relationship with Christ.”

Kaylee, thanks for sharing! Maybe you have a story of how God changed your perspective here at WCRC.  Please consider sharing your story with us!
