Young Life Winter Camp

In December we took over 80 Elevate students to a Young Life Winter Camp. Many were in prayer and the Lord moved, as he faithfully and graciously does. 35 students responded to the call to follow Jesus after camp. 

In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10

Thank you for your prayers and support for Young Life Winter Camp. We ended up taking over 80 Elevate students! 13 Elevate & UYE leaders attended as well. We are celebrating that 35 of those students said yes to following Jesus!

Many seeds were planted and we are believing in God to continue his faithful work in every students’ life. Years ago, a former student did not say “yes” to Jesus while at camp, but did so the day he returned back home. That student is Jose Mercado, who is now doing full time ministry at Cesar Chavez High School, where he was once a student in the Elevate class. May the same be true for other students. 

Please continue praying for them. Thank you.
Blessings to you all,
