THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE: Think of a teen (if you don’t have one) who would benefit from attending this Base Camp and call his mom and tell her about this amazing weeklong training session. Having our kids grow deeper in their walk with the Lord will allow them to build a solid foundation so they will flourish in this anti-God culture.
