The South Leeward Mission’s (SLM) 5th Senior Youth Camp through the Youth department two-week Senior Youth Camp was truly buzzy in motion as they rallied around the theme, Lord Transformed as we RUN. The overall vain of the camp was salvation and service.  As the Lord transformed me, I am able to better serve others, as I serve others they will better see Jesus their Saviour, redeemer and Friend. A mission field embarked by an army of youth!

This South Leeward Mission’s   had its birth from the North Caribbean Conference. Senior Youth Camping experiences dating back to the 1960-70s.

The annual Senior Youth Camp is designed and target senior youths 16 -35 years old. Often the honorary AYs 35+ will not let the opportunity slip them by. This year’s theme – Lord Transformed me as we RUN (Revive-Unite Nurture)

Champion Blucher Watson who provides the information for this coverage Camp reports that Impact Monserrat 2016 had an additional stronger emphasis on community service this year. The youths were involved in RUNing (Revive Unite Nurture) with Jesus into several communities of the Emerald Isle. Beginning on Wednesday, 20th July into the first five days of camp, the youths, fired up by the Holy Spirit, suited up in the proper clothing and, geared up with the proper tools ran into the several identified target areas.

The Communities were impressed and appreciative as they shared their enthusiastic and heartfelt thank you. The Youth themselves also received the double impact, being blessed as they blessed others. The double impact continued for the campers and community members alike. The revival series by Guest Speaker Pastor Smith, helped to spiritual impact the lives of the youth and the community members that accepted the invitations. Additionally the youth continued to allow themselves to be transformed and impacted by new skills such as craft- bag making, Computer graphic Designing, Auto Mechanic and Public Speaking. They also engaged in various rap sessions, social, cultural and recreational activities, and tours that help to impact their spiritual, emotional and social lives.

Semper said, “we have so many different sessions with the young people and I recognize the importance of having a young person with different cultural experiences coming together; different levels of growth coming together, meeting one another, communicating, talking about life’s challenges, making plans for the future, making a commitment to stand together to be citizens, strong citizens of the society.”

She said young persons should not take an amazing opportunity for granted, “because it’s actually creating leaders for tomorrow.”

She spoke of a session with Pastor White. “It was a rap session that was called choosing a life partner and it was so interesting to hear the young men especially, talking about the type of women that they would want to marry…they were actually calling on the young women to be women of moral standards, to be women of excellence so I was really impressed with the young men as they spoke.”

Officials for the camp were: Pastor Kendol Doyle (South Leeward Mission Youth Department Director) was the Camp Director  with assistance from Deputy Camp Director – Sean Joseph (Antigua and Barbuda Island Adventist  Youth  Coordinator); Camp Coordinator – Dr. Eulalie Daley-Semper (SLM Children & Adolescent Ministries Director); and Local Pastor – Pastor Sherwin White (Pastor for SDA Churches in Monserrat).
