Kid’s Camp in Sligo, Ireland
Article submitted by Amber Russelburg
I just got back from an amazing trip to Ireland. Our team of 10 was definitely orchestrated by God. We came from Florida, California, Missouri and Arkansas. Many of us met each other for the first time when we arrived in Ireland. Despite this, our team was unified and worked so well together.
The focus of the trip was to hold a kid’s camp. Reaching children is such a vital and important role of the Church. Ireland still has the lowest percentage of evangelicals of any English-speaking nation and has a young population with an estimated 21% under the age of 15. It is also a leader in alcoholism, broken families and suicide. Our goal was to support the local church in their endeavor to reach out to their communities. The kid’s camp included Bible stories, Bible encounters, crafts, singing, drama, snacks and games. This had never been done before so the church was hoping for 8 – 10 kids to show up. Over the 5 days we averaged 25 kids a day! It was amazing to see the children singing songs about the Lord, memorizing scripture and having fun. I know seeds were planted in the hearts of not only the children but also in their families. It was such a blessing to be a part of what God is doing. Please continue to pray for Ireland.
