Upward Sports Camp WA
July 16th-20th the Landsdale Community Wesleyan Methodist Church in Perth, Western Australia hosted it’s first ever Upward Sports Camp. God blessed us with 110 children who joined us from Landsdale to come and learn Bible lessons about God, but also learn a sport! A team came from America to join in the fun, too! We taught soccer and cheerleading 4 hours a day for 4 days and then on the 5th day we had a competition and the cheerleaders, cheered for their teams!
The kids had such a great time and on day three we were able to share the salvation message! 39 Kids gave their lives to Christ! You could have heard a pin drop in the room, all eyes and ears were eager to hear who their #1 friend was! The children earned stars through the week such as Christ-likeness, Leadership, Effort, Cheers, Spirit, Bible Memory, and Sportsmanship. The week was unbelievable and God moved in a massive way! We were also able to visit the Harrisdale Churchplant and do an evening training too! Our goal this year was to have 50 children attend. God obviously had bigger plans than we did! What an amazing God we serve! Please continue to pray for the Landsdale Church as we reconnect with the families that were involved in the camp.
