Gambrell Street youth participated in the Passport Youth Camp with a Mission experience this past summer in Macon, Georgia. The theme of the week-long camp wasTreasure and the scripture verse was "Ask and it will be given you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." (Matthew 7:7) The youth were encouraged to seek the eternal treasures that God has promised instead of the temporary things that the world has to offer.
Passport uniquely combines youth camp with a mission project. Camp participants participated in daily bible studies on the topics of trusting and following God, and sharing with and serving others. The schedule included times for personal daily devotions, a morning celebration, evening worship and plenty of time for fellowship and recreational activities. Each bible study group ministered to needs within the Macon community. Some of the projects included ministering to children, scraping and painting homes, landscaping and yard cleanup.
