Year after year, people come to Camp Gilead to serve the Lord. Maybe they come for a summer or two, building relationships with campers who remember them from the summer before. Those that are with the ministry year round are those kids that live here…the staff kids.
Each summer, campers come to camp and watch these camp kids grow up. They grow up, year after year, and the campers watch them serve God and continue in their walk with the Lord.
Some skeptics might say these little camp kids are too young or too immature to be a light to others. Jesus himself says, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 He planned this because this is their ministry!
Do these camp kids have an impact on the campers that come to camp? Well, they have made an impact on me! Seeing those Mallory boys run around camp, respect authority and totally be in love with God is so cool to see. What a powerful way to see God’s love … through the eyes of a child!
