TODAY 220 students and 40 leaders begin Camp Carmel! 

It is our prayer that  as these students reflect on 2 Corinthians 6:2 and walk through the power of "Moments" as their camp theme, that there would be moments of conviction, faith building, calling and encouragement as the Holy Spirit moves powerfully through Student camp. 

TOMORROW our Peru team - made up of Carmel families - heads out for a week to lead parenting and marriage classes and pour into families.

THURSDAY our Albania team departs to serve Church of the Disciples - our partner in Triana - to host their first-ever men's retreat and to train church leaders to host a community-outreach Vacation Bible School (leveraging CarmelKiz curriculum!).

We pray Psalm 67 for these trip teams. Lord, bless and keep these teams. We pray protection. We pray for the Gospel to cause dead people to live and for those in Christ to be encouraged. May they be delightfully surprised with more than they can ask or imagine. We pray the nations may know You and ask a special anointing of your Spirit rest on your friends.
