I have volunteered here twice both times took me on an amazing journey. The most recent one was a journey to find myself. While at Camp Barnabas you have to rely on God and you have to put absolute trust in him. You get so tired that you can't stand any longer and you have to just call out to God. I went wondering where I belonged in my faith. I came back knowing who I was made to be and knowing that God gave me trials because he knew that I needed some polishing. He wanted to give me mountains to climb and valleys to walk through and none of that I had to do alone. I had two campers and as a girl in a guy cabin it was tough it was long and tiring. And even though I was tired I spent one whole night writing letters to people in my cabin because I knew they needed some inspiration and motivation. I even wrote to staff and when I was too tired to work I stayed up all night praying and reading my bible I felt so renewed and so ready to take on what challenges I would be given. The best prayer that I prayed that week was "Lord, please give me mountains to climb". If you go to Camp Barnabas be ready to give with all your heart until you have no more and be ready to keep asking for more energy. Camp Barnabas was amazing and I encourage everyone to go because it is truly a life-changing experience.
