For the majority of spring break this year, I was immersed in the beauty and glory of God’s creation. I explored the vast expanses of the famous Serengeti, entered the notorious Ngorongoro Crater, and dove in the clear waters surrounding Pemba. I saw lions, leopards, and cheetahs. I experienced the thrill of a drift dive. It was a great chance to slow down and reflect on all that God has been doing in my life over the last three months. But for all that, my favorite part of spring break was three days in Morogoro with a group of secondary students from HOPAC.
The 2015 YoungLife Camp in Morogoro was a total blast! We played field games, pool games, and glow-in-the-dark games. We slid down an enormous water-slide built into the side of the mountain. We made new friends and strengthened old friendships. We laughed with “Sasha” as he flaunted his “magic.” We listened as Micki shared about the person and work of Jesus Christ. We shared our hearts and lives with each other during cabin times. We partied (and slept) on the bus to and from camp. Through it all, my prayer is that God was glorified and lives were changed.
