Briefly explain to us your testimony
I don’t have one of those big testimonies that will move you to tears. I grew up in a good Christian household with two loving parents who would do anything for me, and a sister who always supports me. I grew up embraced by the church and I always had a strong Christ based life. I went to church and youth group almost every Sunday and was at most the events that the church held. I grew up coming to Delanco Camp and every time I came, I felt so blessed to have such an amazing life. I knew my life was great but I never had a true relationship with Christ. It wasn’t until this past summer (2013), that I my walk with him became a true one. When my family moved to Delanco for the summer to take over as the caretakers of camp, my life changed. I had to leave my hometown, move away from my friends, and move High Schools going into my sophomore year. That is when God really started to test me. My life had changed in the matter of a month. After a summer with amazing people who helped to strengthen my walk with Christ, my life began to change for the better. In the start of the school year it was rough few months but holding onto my faith I made it through and I have come out of this year with a new life plan. I have never had such a strong faith and I am looking forward to grow even more this summer while serving here at Delanco Camp.
