Goldfields held a youth camp from 4-8 October 2014. Three busses brought youth from the
local township, Meloding (Virginia), to the mission. A group from Edenville also came with
another bus. Altogether about 250 youth registered for the camp.
The theme of the camp
was: Prepare to meet your God. Amos 4:12
The first evening,
ane girl testified how she was just a Christian but would still live as always, but after
the previous camp with the theme of "Are You Satisfied?" she realised that she
was not satisfied. She confessed her sin and made a choice to live a holy life by God's
A small boy in
stature but with a big heart stood up and thanked the mission for providing these camps
giving everything for free. He said that the Bible says that you must be happy for
everything you receive and he was very happy for everything he received. He realised that
he is here not because of his will but because it is God's will.
Mr. Bruno Hlongwane
held the service and read from Amos 4:12. He related how with a recent wedding the bride
had to prepare months before the time for the great day when she got married. Sometimes
they had to work through the night in preparing for the bridegroom. He asked what are we
doing to prepare to meet God when He should come back? He asked what if the Lord Jesus
would come back tonight to fetch you, will you be ready?
There was every day
three services where testimonies were shared or sermons given. After every service some
students would remain behind to ask for prayer putting their lives right with God. In
every service the emphasis was placed on preparing to meet the Lord, making sure our lives
are ready when the Lord should come to fetch us. We thank the Lord for those who made use
of the opportunity and heard the call of the Lord to prepare and we pray for those who did
not yet respond to His voice in their hearts.
When the camp was
over after the Wednesday morning devotion, many did not want leave. Some were crying and
asked where our bus is stopping in the township that fetches people for the Sunday
