Youth Camp 2016
Thanks to Missionary Jim Waters for coming from Mbala to preach our Youth Camp This year. Mbala is a 600 mile trip that takes about 11 hours to drive. The theme for this year's camp was bound. Bro. Jim preached messages concerning being bound to sin instead of being bound to Christ. There were 15 saved throughout the week.
The population of Zambia is 14.54 million. Over half of the population is under 20 years old. The median age in Zambia is 16.5 years. (Statistics from the 2011 CIA World Factbook.) The future of any church is the youth. Through the faithful giving of our supporting churches we were able to purchase some property 5 miles south of Ndola in 2004 to develop into a youth camp. Our youth camp is the highlight of our churches youth program. We hold a week long camp in August with the attendance over 120 most years. We have seen hundreds of youth saved at our camp since we began our youth camp ministry in 2003.
