During the last week of October, after a year-long break, the fall camp ‘Totally His’ took place, with many campers joining in for the first time. We were really happy that so many young people wanted to spend their fall vacation with us Eagle’s Wings! Our group included not only young people who had already been to summer camps, but also those who had never been to Eagle Wings camps before. Also, you could feel that this was a special week for the leaders too.
The topics and activities discussed at the camp made the young people think about how to be ‘TotallyHis’, the leaders shared their testimonies and what was discussed was reflected on both individually and in small groups. We also had a great opportunity to listen to Dustin Peterson’s testimony of what it means to him to be ‘Totally His’. We played games, sang songs, went to the sauna and spent quality time together, and on Saturday we learned Latvian folk dances together.
On the last evening, we experienced a special moment when we all thought about what are the things that we should ‘let go’ and forgive ourselves for, so that we can be ‘Totally His’. No matter how much we cling to these things, God helps us to let them go of them and draw closer to Him to be totally His.
The end of the camp was held on Sunday at Madona Baptist Church, where the campers were given the opportunity to participate in a church service that was led by the young people of the church. It was a great experience for young people who are not used to going to church on Sundays.
Thanks to everyone who participated and worked to make this camp happen, it was a wonderful time together!
