“Living for Christ under canvas often provides a unique opportunity to share the things of God with the younger generation.” – Richard Norton, Director-SiloamUK
Siloam Christian Ministries, Childcare Worldwide’s UK affiliate, celebrates its 24th year of sponsoring children’s Bible camps in Portugal, Poland, Bulgaria and the Ukraine. Over the course of a week or 10 days, children get to tangibly experience what it means to be a Christian. The camps provide opportunities for growth through small group sharing times, games, Bible learning, and worship. “Just being together in a relaxed and secure environment means so much to these kids…,” said Richard Norton, Director-SiloamUK.
Each year, the camps attempt to find more effective and creative ways to reach the young people. “Many of the young people who came to faith in their teenage years are now leading house groups or act as worship leaders, others are pastors. So, we know what a positive impact this program has had on the lives of young people,” said Mr. Norton.
The following is an excerpt from a letter written by a volunteer at the camp in Ukraine:
“Simply—it was fantastic… We had about 64 children, and it was a privilege to join with them each day for worship, participate in their Bible lessons and have fun with them through games and fellowship. It was so special to walk past their tents and hear them singing the songs we had been teaching them…The program was well thought out and everything was done at a very high quality in terms of food, beds in the tents, etc…. lives are being changed.” –Claire Anderson
For as little as $90, you can provide for a child to go to a Siloam camp.
“What more can I say, Siloam can do so much with so little, but your help is needed right now in order to raise the required funds over the next two months (by Sept 1) during this important summer period which we are praying will change the direction of many young people’s lives in the former communist world and Portugal.” – Richard Norton, Director-SiloamUK
