As School Starts Back Up, Students Need Your Help!
Although her grandparents were believers and cared for her in a loving way, Jen still felt abandoned and withdrew from people and from the Lord.
During eighth grade, Jen had the chance to attend Snow Camp. She hated it. Throughout the weekend, she kept her heart closed to the Lord’s gentle prompting. The following summer, despite her protests, her grandparents sent her to another Word of Life camp—The Island.
When Jen walked into The Island, she was determined to leave the same, to not allow the Lord or anyone else into her life. But there, Jen encountered the Lord in a new, fresh way, and His deep love for her finally connected to her soul.
“I went in there walking with my head held high, and I left on my knees. That’s where my faith became real to me. That’s where I dedicated my life to God.”
Because of her counselors and grandparents’ patient love and care for her heart and soul, Jen recommitted her life to the Lord.
Several years later, Jen’s father died, leaving her truly alone. In the midst of her deep grief, Jen found herself wrestling with her faith and her understanding of God’s goodness.
During that time of great uncertainty, several generous friends just like you stepped forward to provide Jen with a scholarship to attend the Word of Life Bible Institute.
“Even though I was struggling with what I believed, I made the decision to go to the Word of Life Bible Institute in Florida, and that decision rocked my world.”
Through the faith and love from camp counselors, her grandparents and many other Word of Life friends, Jen was able to experience the body of Christ in action on her behalf through prayer, emotional support, spiritual accountability and financial assistance.
