Just a short note to say SWSCA 06 (our summer camp) is over. An exceptional week was brought to a close with an exceptional final celebration in which our students and staff excelled themselves. It’s no over-exaggeration that I was close to tears with pride at the end – nothing to do with what I do, but all to do with what the students had achieved and experienced throughout the week.
We have a great sense of community at the moment within the division – but it needs to grow! We need to see more of the kids who attend our churches get on board with the programme! Not because I want to see my stuff be really successful, but because we’re seeing something incredible happening with our guys.
Right at the end of the celebration after I did the ‘good night and God bless bit’ I got the everyone together in a big circle and just felt the incredible love they have for each other. I really felt God telling me more than once this week to major on ‘there must be more that this’ – that they’ve had an awesome week, but God has more in store for them than they can ever possibly imagine.
So thanks to SWSCA students, to my beautiful staff team (I know it’s cheesy, but I truly do love you all as brothers and sisters in Christ) for giving me perhaps one of the most remarkable weeks of my life.
And as I said last night – Jesus gets all the glory!!!
