I am thankful for the experiences at the camp – Olivia Huang – AP Camp 2019

I enjoyed my time in the Philippines having children fellowship and meeting the local brothers and sisters.  Through the trainings from Violin, I learned how to talk to brothers and sisters whom I am not familiar with. Also, I learned how to focus on the Lord more in worship.  I find this AP Camp a lot of fun and I am thankful for this experience.

I am seven years old – Marco Yu – AP Camp 2019

My name is Marco. I loved to be at the Philippines camp. I loved the food and the programs, like classes, drawing and volleyball. I also learned that Jesus died on the cross for us. Something I improved was that I showered by myself. I want to come back again next time.

Life was hard but I felt closer to God – Nathaniel Tai – AP Camp 2019

We stayed in a high school at Tarlac. The life in the Philippines was hard. The washroom was so dirty and stinky. The bugs were everywhere. I had a lot of  mosquito bit and felt so itchy.  I felt God so deeply in worship times. I really felt the Lord closer to me like I never had before. In every meeting I gained a lot.  I want to go back to the Philippines next time.

Three things I enjoyed – Mathew Chan – AP Camp 2019

During school days, I feel really rushed but at the camp, I could have time in the morning to draw near to him. I also enjoyed meals times because I could share and learn of brothers and sisters from all around the world. Receiving reminders from brothers and sister also helped me realize things that I might not aware or remind me to help others and my own spirit.

I desire to be the one to change many lives – Elon Suen – AP Camp 2019

On this trip I had the opportunity to hear the experiences of many different brothers and sisters. One night, two from Nepal, Poonam and another boy shared how they grew up in the children’s home in Nepal. They shared with tears how grateful they were to their children’s home parents and that they could know God through them and be loved in God’s family. Their story renewed my vision.  I had a strong desire to be the one to change many lives, to help the many Poonams out there.  I thought about my living conditions in the Philippines—having to endure

A Family Trip Like No Other – Ida Kong – AP Camp 2019

I give thanks to the Lord that I could have the chance to join the Asia Pacific Camp with my whole family in the Philippines. Through this camp, I wanted my two daughters (aged 9 and 11), my husband and I to experience the Lord deeply and see the need of the world. The camp gave us many gains. I was greatly inspired by the camp arrangement. Because brothers and sisters were from different parts of the world, I initially thought it would be challenging to get to know so many of them in just one week. However, Violin arranged

Will Chan – AP Camp 2019

This camp reminded me of the importance of turning to God and to expect to see God and His response. If I do not see God, experience Him or give Him time to respond, then the practices of drawing near to God will become burdensome. This helps me to enjoy the essence of the schedule and spiritual discipline to live out true fellowship with God and brothers and sisters.  I am also touched by the worship and family time arrangement where we get to hear true stories from precious brothers and sisters to help us treasure different truths and real-life

Heman & Truman Ho – AP Camp 2019

Heman Ho During the camp in the Philippines, I enjoyed having fellowship and partner time with brothers and sisters. I see how much the world needs God. He is the only one that can be with us always. After this camp I feel like I want to give myself to God.   “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”👍👍 Joshua 1:9 ESV Truman Ho During the AP camp, I learned to turn to the Lord more throughout the day.
