TalcKamp 2009

TalcKampSome of you may remember last year that we went and led worship for a camp in California……well it’s that time again!  In 2 1/2 weeks we will be packing a trailer with all of our equipment and making the 15 hour drive south.

Last year was absolutely amazing.  I’m not sure if God had it more for the kids of for me!  I walked away with a new passion for kids and especially leading worship for youth.  God did do some amazing things with the group.  This, in many ways, is not your typical youth camp.  Over half of the kids that came to the camp do not go to church.  They all choose to be there.  Many of them live in broken homes.  Some had criminal records.  Some of them make choices to change their lives and follow Jesus.  I look at this as much more of a expedition than just a fun camp.  We are headed to place and a people who need the hands and feet of Jesus and we are going just to plug into what God is already doing.  We’re going to use the music and abilities we’ve been blessed with.  We’re going to just be with some kids that need to know they are loved and there are people willing to walk their story with them.

The coolest thing last year is that we got to be there with them and speak into their lives.  We got to step down off that stage and walk along side them for a long weekend and we will be forever changed.  So we’re headed back to do it again.  This time with a bigger team and even more kids.  Last year we had about 25 kids.  This year – Already 40 kids signed up and possibly even 50.  Last year a 3 piece band – this year a 4 piece band and one VERY loud sound system!  But no matter how much growth we are seeing one thing still remains the truth – we are headed into an encounter with the hurt, needy, burdened and those needing to hear a new message – one that can change lives.  One that can change their world!

We need your help | one thing really: prayer.  We found last year that the more we prayed the more change we saw.  There is a war being waged and those kids are right in the midst of it.  This year, I think even more prayer is necessary.  Would you be willing to commit to pray throughout a day for the band, for the leaders, FOR THE KIDS!?  If this is something you want to be a part of please email me so I can send you specifics and even times.  Email me at inkedindreams@gmail.com and I will put you on the schedule.

More to come so look for the updates!
