Participants enjoyed outdoor activities in the Sabbath afternoon. At a touching baptismal service in the evening, 60 people were born again as children of the Lord. On the candidates’ list there were Mr. JoonBeom and JoonMin Kim, twin brothers from Seokgye branch, and Ms. MiSook Byeon who was a Mormon, but studies Bible for 2 years with her teacher, Mrs. Kim Ellis.

Giving thanks to God for His special plan, Mrs. JongWon Choi from Mokdong branch shared testimony. “While my child attended the SDA Language School, he was baptized. At that time I was hard on him, for he did it without my permission. But, to me surprise, I got baptized today. How wonderful!”

“It was great to hear of Bible stories for the first time in my life and it was also good time together with good teachers and friends” said Ms. SoJeong Hwang, a participant.

The number of camp attendees has steadily increased, because it provides many interesting programs with gospel messages. The weather was perfect by God’s grace and it was a precious time to experience God’s special plan for the students.
