Each summer we go the Soul Survivor Camp. See www.soulsurvivor.com to find out more about this massive camp. All the best Christian bands are there and there’s plenty going on all day (and night!).
Thousands of young people with tents, brilliant music,
fun and entertainment, time to make new friends and meet old ones. Where were we? Not Reading or Leeds Festival but Soul Survivor
in Somerset! We just wished it could
last for ever. Twice a day we met in our
thousands in the Big Top for worship led by some of the world’s greatest
worship leaders. Some of the most
inspiring worship moments this year were led by Phil Wickham. Jake Mackriell, one of our worship leaders,
was able to discuss his own skills with Phil and benefit from his advice. Our other worship leader, James spent
some time in seminar with Matt Redman, one of the country’s leading worship song writers.
While our worship leaders were busy comparing notes, others
of our team were getting to know the Christian bands performing. Gertie even ended up on stage with LZ7
singing their single ‘This Little Light of Mine’ soon to be released. They managed to get photos with most of the
singers, including Phil Wickham and 29th Chapter.
Gwen, Danielle, Gertie and Louise won the video competition
and were quick to involve Hugh, as a VIP vicar, in the video. Hugh kindly came down from Swindon to join us
for tea and worship for one night.
Danielle was the overall winner of the Turn on the Tap competition,
carrying litres of water for a record length of time in the Global Walk for
When we weren’t in Soulman or Soulsista seminars or
drinking Chocolate Mountains in the Soul Action Café we had some great chats
back at base. During the weeks of Soul Survivor many thousand copies of the
Soul Survivor Bible in One Year were sold.
We all got one and will start with the Soul Survivor team reading our
bibles on Sept 1st. From this
day there will be a daily blog on the Soul Survivor website for us to join in
discussion on the verses read and we will discuss the reading of the day in our
CAKE meetings. So wherever we are we can be sure we are joining in with Soul Survivors worldwide, sharing God’s word.
