This week, our girls who finished 8th Grade recently,
attended a fabulous camp in Mbita.
Teens Empowerment with LifeSkills Camp was organized and hosted by SEEK, Suba
Environmental Education of Kenya. Each local
school was able to invite 4 students to the camp. Because of the Club’s long-standing history
and partnership with SEEK, they invited all Suba Laker 8th
Graders. Four of our five girls were
able to attend; Theresa, Sharon, Jacinter and Winnie.
The camp schedule was packed, from morning ‘til night, with great lessons and plenty of fun. They enjoyed getting to know the other
campers through fun team building activities.
The week started with sessions on ROPES: Rights Of Passage
Experiences. The speaker, a skilled
youth pastor from Nairobi, spoke about the upcoming transition from primary
school to secondary school. They looked
at Biblical examples of men and women who were tough and learned to persevere
when life was challenging. The students
learned about the importance of caring for nature through Environmental Resource
Stewardship. A representative from a
local bank spoke to them about how to be responsible with their finances.
Community Service was a big focus for the week. All the campers helped in building a new house
for a widow whose home burnt down last year.
Students even had a chance to show their God-given skills in the Talent
Show! The week ended with a huge
campfire on Friday night full of singing, dancing, praise & worship and
several students giving their lives to Christ.
We’re grateful for such a wonderful, affordable camp to have
taken place right here in Mbita. These
girls, and the others who attended, had a wonderful time, learned many things
and, for some, their lives are changed for eternity.
Check out the great work of SEEK
