100 Words or Less...
by Patty Evans on May 28th, 2011

Someone recently asked me if I thought I could share my testimony in 100 words or less. I know what you’re thinking. If you have spent any time with me, you are probably laughing out loud right now. I do like telling a good story and it usually takes me longer than that but I’m always up for a good challenge so I thought I would try. So here it goes….

”I grew up with a missionary father so I knew all about God and Jesus very early on. So I was really surprised one night at camp when our pastor shared that just because my mom and dad were Christians that didn’t guarantee that I was one. What!! Did he know who my father was or that my mom played the piano in church??? Surely I was in!? He said that God wants all of us to make our own decision. So right there, around that campfire at age 9, I prayed and made Jesus the leader of my life.” 100 words!!!

Wow, that was hard! And there really is a lot more to the story but maybe those humble beginnings of my journey with Christ are why I am so passionate about church camp. That wasn’t the first or last summer I spent under the stars evaluating our Creator and my relationship with Him. I wonder if I felt closer to God because I was taken out of the comfort of my home or because of those many hours each day for 5 days I spent talking about Him and singing to Him that did it. Whatever it was, it still drives me to count down the weeks until I get to go to camp again! I really feel blessed that my job is taking kids to church camp. If you never experienced it as a child then come and talk to me. I would love to take you!
