Chain Reaction - Your link to camp
This past Spring I heard about a travel team that was having a very discouraging season. The assistant coach, a strong Christian woman, mentioned how hard the coach was on the players. Some of the players wanted to give up on the sport altogether and never play again. I invited the assistant coach, along with her daughter, to FCA camp to be refreshed and have life poured back into her. The assistant coach then invited another teammate, Karly, to attend camp with her daughter. This sport was everything to Karly as she was a key player and carried the weight of the team.
However, for the two girls to attend camp they needed scholarships.
Through faithful donors, we were able to scholarship the two athletes! On the second day of FCA camp, Karly made a decision to follow Christ! Karly has never been to church before in her life nor has she attended the FCA at her school. At the end of camp she said she is so excited to get involved with FCA on her campus so she can grow in her faith! Two other girls from her campus FCA also attended camp. Karly’s circle is changing! She has Christian friends at school and on her team and is connecting with a church youth group.
Let me be straightforward and urgent with you. You hold a significant link to this chain that reached Karly! Your investment is supporting an Area Rep (me) to reach athletes and coaches in the area. Because I formed a friendship with a coach, I was able to invite her daughter to camp. This player invited her teammate, whose life changed! Karly’s experience did not end at camp. Your funds are helping to nurture her in her personal relationship with God where she can be encouraged in her faith.
Isn’t it exciting to be a link in this chain that is transforming lives and has the opportunity to impact the world!
