God’s Got This!
FAITH in Utah
Royal Family KIDS Camp is the one ministry where you truly have to have faith and a total trust in God for His plan. This is why I love it! We all grow stronger when we step out and truly submit and trust Him. As participants in a Royal Family KIDS camp, we see God’s power and get to be part of His miracles.
I am thankful for those who came before me alongside the church to launch our camp. How thankful I am that the church body saw the vision and responded. And, it is still going strong today. It takes many people to hold camp, and I thank God for the volunteers who give of themselves to bless the kids.
I have been involved in RFK for twelve years in many different areas. Being director last year for the first time was a new experience. I truly grew stronger in my walk with God as I leaned on Him and realized how much He loves our camp. My camp phrase last year was “God’s got this.” Through preparing and working out all the issues that come up from campers, volunteers, and funding camp, I kept reminding myself that “God’s got this” and to trust Him. A lot of prayer and planning goes into camp but I can truly say “God has it” and He truly does hold all things in His hands to conform to His plan. He truly loves Royal Family KIDS camp and is the biggest part of it all.
We have been blessed in so many ways such as financially, with a supportive church, and a great facility. Our faithful volunteers have a heart for these kids, and our biggest blessing is serving the campers. We have all come to love the kids and continually pray for them.
I am always amazed at how these precious little kids who have been neglected or abandoned at one point in their lives, keep trying, never give up, and always have hope. Kids who will band together—helping each other, get through trials. When we see these kids receive love and witness just how strong and beautiful they are, it is clear that they are survivors. We could all take a lesson from them.
Mountain View Christian Assembly of God, in Sandy Utah, has been privileged to hold a Royal Family KIDS camp for 20 years. In addition to ours, two more camps have been added in the state of Utah. The need to serve foster children in our area is great, and we are honored to be a part of ‘doing life’ with them at our annual camp!
