For those attending GMBA Camp, it's goodbye day. The morning is usually filled with hugs, tears, exchanging of phone numbers and emails, and the frantic packing of luggage. Some campers — particularly the younger set — didn't get a wink of sleep last night, enjoying every last drop of fellowship time.
More than any of that, we believe that many campers are going home armed with important spiritual convictions, insights, and challenges that they plan to live out in their daily lives. This is the true spirit of GMBA Camp. The warm, fuzzy feeling that we have when we're there is great. But it's the takeaway that has lasting impact.
For the nine (as of our last count) souls in particular who requested baptism this week, the takeaway will be no less than life changing.
