Workcamp 2013 Reflections: When I Go Home from Workcamp…

WC FridayAs we heard in the “one word” reflections on Workcamp, every year we go this trip is truly one of life-change.  We each walk out of that week different than we walked in.  Here’s how God changed some of our participants’ lives in Hastings MI this July:



“I’ve grown tremendously spiritually.  … I have redirected my life. I have also changed my attitude towards people.” – Jack Myer

“I’m going to reflect more on this topic and dig deeper into His Word and find out over the next couple of year what I stand for.  I realize all the amazing things I have and don’t take anything for granted.” – Becca Canfield

“I now know that God is my first love. I know now to love Him so fully and wholly that I need to rely on Him as I have tried to do with others.  He loves me.  He waits to hear from me every day and He is the perfect One for me.” – Stacy DiCenso

“I have seen the youth open up and i need to start doing that too. I’m going to work on that.” – Deb Canfield (adult leader)

“I know I stand for Jesus. But I learned I need to let my light shine more and farther.” – Tim Stone (adult leader)

“God has changed me and how I handle situations.  I will be there for all my friends as much as I can.” – Josh Collins

“I’m going to be different because I have made a ton of new relationships. Each of these new friends have added something to me as a person. Also I feel like a weight has been taken off my shoulders and that I am more open and energized.”  – Becky Boccolucci

Join us at First Trinity this weekend to hear more stories of life change and perhaps be encouraged yourself to explore the question, “What do you stand for?”  (Saturday 5:30 p.m.; Sunday 8:45 and 11:15 a.m.)

  1. I think it’s super cool that you all served people this summer. A lot of people say they stand for Jesus, but you all actually going there and doing His work shows who and what you all stand for. I respect that immensely, and keep up the great work!
