God, in My Apartment Building

By Jan Spiess, who serves with InFaith in Nebraska

“Come and see what God has done, how awesome His works in man’s behalf!” –Psalm 66:5 (NIV, 1984)

I was meeting with a widow for whom I had bought a Bible, and another lady asked to join us because she also had never had any Bible study. The three of us were deeply engrossed in our study when someone knocked at my door. A neighbor asked if she could come in because she needed to talk to me. I said sure, but we were doing a Bible study, so I invited her to sit with us. She got very excited and said she had never been involved in a Bible study like we are doing. Continue

When God Shows Up

By Colt Harrington, who served on the 2014 summer staff at InFaith’s Mt. Hope Bible Camp in Ohio

Mt. Hope Bible Camp has a part of my life for a long time, and it never ceases to amaze me each year when God shows up. This summer, I was a little nervous working the thirteen- to fourteen-year-old week because it seems like those kids are harder to get through to than many age groups. With one of my jobs being to lead worship this year, I got a huge opportunity each night to see how the kids were responding simply by how they worshipped. Right from the first day, it seemed that every kid was enthusiastic about worship and ready to hear from God. It really blessed me because it seemed like every day the kids grew more and more receptive. It grew to the point where, when the evangelist Mike Parks asked for those kids who were ready to be champions for Christ to come forward, every single one did. It had been a while since I’d seen God work on such a large scale like that! Continue

Randy and I have a wonderful team of folks from Palmcroft Baptist in Phoenix, who have helped us do one to two Vacation Bible Schools per day for ten summers now. The faces have changed here and there, but the hearts are committed to do whatever is needed. Continue

A Hard Week, with Joy

By Samantha Glaeser, who served on the 2014 summer staff at InFaith’s Cocolalla Bible Camp in Idaho

At teen camp, I had an awesome cabin. Most of the girls were believers and super fun, and I got the opportunity to see God save one of my campers. On Monday, she thought she was saved by works, but by Wednesday when I talked to her again, she was in tears and understood her need for Christ. It was totally all God! So I had an awesome week. I pretty much guessed that meant the next week would be harder, and I was right.Continue

Two Amazing Weeks

By Michael Jayne, who served on the 2014 summer staff at InFaith’s Mt. Hope Bible Camp in Ohio

Going into a week of camp, I was excited but also very nervous. I had never worked with kids at camp before, let alone be a cabin leader, and honestly, I never really considered myself a “kid person.” However, I felt God calling me to serve at camp, and it was a great experience. Continue

An Intense Battle and Incredible Results

An Intense Battle and Incredible Results

By Jim Webb, who serves with InFaith in Oregon

This year’s mission trip with our summer staff had to be the most schizophrenic one we have ever done! I do not think we faced such intense spiritual battle or saw such incredible results. The spiritual battle came in the many forms, including interpersonal conflicts. We had a young team, and these type of things are to be expected. However, we addressed them as they arose for what they were – spiritual attack from the enemy of our soul.Continue
