We are so grateful for all that God did at our Upward Basketball Camp this year. We had 80 campers from 9-14 years old. Over a third of them indicated that they were believing in Jesus as their Lord and Savior either for the first time or reaffirming that decision! The boys played on four outdoor courts and one indoor court. On the second night of camp, we saw God divert a rain storm to the north and south of our camp until 15 minutes after we finished our last game for the night!
Dan Wetzel, from Day of Champions, captured the attention of all with his ball handling skills and clear presentation of the Good News about the Lord Jesus Christ. We are so grateful for the 20+ men who volunteered their time each night as coaches and referees and modeled Christ-kindness for the campers. God also blessed us with 13 teen assistant coaches – most of whom were former campers – who gave their time and talents to help the boys improve their game.
We praise the Lord Jesus Christ for this faithfulness and look for what He has in store for 2015!
