Thank You From Camp!
Prince of Peace was blessed to be able to partner with Pioneers Canada missionaries Pete and Darlene Wright to host a cross-country running and youth camp. This Camp is part of the greater Sports Ministry conducted by Pete and Darlene, where they use coaching running as a means to create contacts with JH and HS youth from various immigrant communities in Edmonton and bring them the Good News of Jesus Christ. Camp ran from August 15-20th and from our congregation Pastor Mark, Beka Rekken, and Eric Evans served there. Pastor Mark was the Camp Speaker and conducted 9 Chapel messages over the course of the week, where he clearly preached the Gospel under the theme of Blood, Sweat, and Tears. Beka has been involved in this sports ministry and Camp for over 10 years and served as an assistant director, and Eric Evans joined as a male counsellor. We couldn't have asked for a better week! Truly a testimony to God's faithfulness as He brought together a wonderful staff, provided food, supplies and people willing to haul it all, gave us a great group of campers, blessed us with safety and weather, and most of all equipped Pastor Mark, Pete, Oakley and others to bring His Word and testify to the work and love of Jesus! Thank you to the Prince of Peace congregation for allowing Pastor Mark to undertake this evangelism opportunity!
