Reflection: We are encouraged to live differently. Be conscious of how we might behave that is pleasing to God and loving of our neighbor.
A camper came to us on a Sunday, literally shaking in fear of being here. By Thursday the camper was asking if there was a way to come back for a second week this summer. (There is. Just call the office and it will be arranged! 570 922-1587).
Let me tell you how that transformation happened. We have a staff who lives by the yummy fruits of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. The camper experienced that life from our counselors and wants more!
Might someone be transformed today by the way you live? --Jim Bricker
