Our church family sponsors Young Champions, a track and field camp, every summer. The camp is held at a local high school and is open to the public as an outreach to our community. Children, ranging from preschool to 6th grade, have the opportunity to receive instruction for each event and compete... with each child receiving colorful ribbons... and the opportunity to learn about the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Christopher has participated in this camp multiple times and even carried the opening torch in his younger days. But this year Christopher decided to be a volunteer as opposed to a participant. And he was asked to assist our young friend, Jackson, with carrying the opening torch.
My prayer is that Christopher truly will pass on the torch of volunteerism to those around him. That he will spur those around him toward love and good deeds.
Memory Verse 16
My memory verse is taken from unit 12 of Experiencing God.
Unit 12: Experiencing God in Your Daily Life
And let us consider how we may
spur one another on
toward love and good deeds.
Let us not give up meeting together,
as some are in the habit of doing,
but let us encourage one another—
and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
