“My highlight of the North Island Easter Camp 2021 was the Sunday morning service, when so many people lifted their hands either to renew their relationship with Christ or to accept Christ in their lives for the first time.
“So many people’s lives were touched by this camp including mine; I have been a Christian for a long time now, but leading up to Easter Camp I felt overworked and stressed out. I had been too focused on making my last year of high school count but I had somehow begun to lose sight of what my purpose was.
“After spending four days of not thinking about and worrying over schoolwork and instead, focusing on God, I could finally reflect on the last year and most importantly remember what Jesus did for us on the cross. When I took time to sit and reflect, I could see all that God had done for me and I felt strongly convicted on just how distracted I have been.
“On a less spiritual level, one of the things I appreciated about this camp was the way it was run, in that it was well balanced between services and seminars and outdoor activities. I actually forgot my phone and social media existed until I was on the bus on the way home! This was my first Easter camp and I really hope it won’t be my last!”
