Hi my name is Ben, and I am 19. Last summer I went to Zambia with Camp Life and had an experience of a lifetime. My whole reason for going to Zambia was to do the Lord's work. When I arrived at the camp for my first time, I was anxious and excited to start the week! That day, I was blessed with 10 wonderful orphans, Moses, Isaac, Chipipa, Godfrey, Anderson, Yembe, Frank, Stanley, James, and Given. At first these kids were quiet and shy but as the day went on they began to open up to me with smiles. The best smiles in the world are in Africa! Later as the week continued I got to know each of them one on one. I was revealed to the everyday pain and darkness these children go through, and saddened to know with all of the luxuries I have in America that I could do nothing. But then, I understood the most important thing these children are missing is LOVE. So for the rest of the week that was my goal, to give them uncounted amounts of love. I developed a love for each one of these kids, and I will always love them. i am so thankful I went with Camp Life because of the messages and sermons Greer Kendall taught us; truly wonderful words of wisdom. Now it is May of 2012 and I am getting ready for my trip back to Zambia with Camp Life. Going to Zambia with Camp Life truly has been the experience of my lifetime.
