This young lady was one of our many teen counselors at our 2017 Hill Sports & Arts Camp. This was that moment, a picture of that kingdom moment, seeing one of our anchor church teens loving on one of our Hill kids.
Pastor Graham (the Senior Pastor of our anchor church, CPC New Haven, had asked what God moments, what kingdom moments did you see during Impact Week, I thought of the number of times I saw our anchor church teen counselors loving on our Hill kids—when a teen would take aside to console a hurt, crying, or sad child; when a teen would embrace a shy, stand-offish child who couldn't find his or her place in the crowd of other kids. These moments were the gospel to me. These were kingdom moments.
I was amazed and thankful for our teen counselors, who throughout the fives days, tirelessly gave themselves to our Hill kids. These young people and teens, our anchor church counselors, were the flesh of the gospel for these five days of Sports & Arts Camp in the Hill.
*There were moments not captured in a picture, so many anchor church teen counselors loving on our Hill kids. Am thankful to them all. FYI--all volunteer time, too!
