This week I am teaching Bible at Camp Blue Haven in New Mexico. I have been coming to this place for over 20 years to invest in the younger generations of Christ-followers, and it has been one of the greatest blessings of my life.
Here are 5 things I love most about CBH:
The People (especially the students)
My family and I have made special friendships at CBH – the kind of friendships that are deep and “life-giving.” My CBH “family” has encouraged me and inspired me in so many lasting ways. I look forward to being around them every year. But the ones who truly give me so much hope are the students. To see young people who are truly invested in their relationship with Christ fires up an old man like me because they want to do great things for the glory of God and for the sake of God’s Kingdom.
The camp is nestled in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico, and CBH takes full advantage of this geographical benefit. The opportunity to connect with the Creator in a setting that reminds you of how awesome our Creator is deepens my awe and love for God.
Simply put, the worship is heavenly.
I spend much of my time at CBH laughing – the deep kind of laughing where your sides hurt, your eyes waters, and your nose snorts. I love it.
Camp Blue Haven is also the scene for one of the best moments of my life – when I got to baptize my daughter into Christ!
