Camp Memorabilia

Last Tuesday (April 13) to Thursday (April 16), we had our 1st Unified Bible Baptist Churches Camp At Camp Bernadette in Bangkas, Toril Davao City. Our church was the one who hosted the camp. Our camp's theme is "My Son give me thine heart..." which is found in the book of Proverbs 23:26. This camp is intended to all baptist young people to unite once again and fellowship with one another as well as convince the young people to give their hearts to the service of the LORD. There are 20 different baptist churches from Davao City who joined the camp. The main speaker of the camp was Pastor Elijah Alvaro ( my father's playmate way back).
Our tent
I did not stay on the campsite due to work schedules but I went there last Tuesday and Thursday. I had a very great time though I just have a little time to mingle with other fellow baptist young people. As i stayed in the campsite, our fellow church members rendered a very joyful games to us. Though it is not a competition but we considered as a fellowship.
Meanwhile, I was very happy i received gifts from the camp.
Hello Kitty, my first souvenir Heart Stuff toy, a souvenir
First, my name was picked by the host and I was compelled to join a game. I was not the winner of the game but they still gave me, together with the 10 picked participants, a hello kitty stuff toy. Second, my little brother won a heart-shaped stuff toy from the"dart game".
Imy camp memorabilia
Aside from that, there are a lots of memorabilia that was given to us such as bookmarks, keychains, pencil holders/cases, marker pens, notebooks, ballpens, foods, and candies. Some campers received trophies for their excellent attitude during the 3-days camp.
All of these stuff are great but what i really treasured most when i joined the camp was the message brought by Pastor Elijah Alvaro to every young people. In our 3-days in our camp, i really gain some knowledge and wisdom from his message that the things in these world is valuable for us but we don't realize that the most valuable thing to considered is the "shedding of the blood in the cross by the only begotten son "Jesus Christ". It's not too late for us to receive Him as our Personal Lord and Savior as long as we still breathe but when we died its too late for us to receive him. Salvation is a free gift that everybody must know and accept it. He also stated that when we offer our hearts to God and be in the service of Him, that's the time we can tell that life is beautiful and nothing more beautiful.
I really appreciated all the people behind this camp. They did a great job. Two thumbs up to all of you! =)

going camping is good but if we go there camping with a great purpose (to know more about God), then that's wonderful! I remember the youth camps that I attended. It was fun and you feel very much comfortable after the camp because you know that you received the salvation of God.

Nag pe-perform kami every camp in front of more than 1000+ young people from different churches in the Philippines. Dun ko nga rin na meet lahat ng mga GREAT friends ko eh including my bestfriends! At super AMAZING ang feeling everytime na nakikita ko na maraming nase-save! Continue to serve the LORD my dear! God Bless!
