Here’s a glimpse of all that happened in Belize August 2022 when I was invited to speak at a camp for kids and teens. I sent the following out to my email list…
What God did in a few days blew us all away!
In a previous email, I wrote:
“I’m away and heading to Belize in a week (Aug 8 -17) to minister to children and teens. Invite your prayers. There’s lots of abuse and trauma. Shyness is common as trust is tender. Pray for Holy Spirit anointing through us. I’m full of anticipation for what God will do!”
Well… God absolutely BLEW us away.
Ephesians 3:20 was definitely the theme of each day:
“With God’s power working in us, he can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of.” (ERV)
|What happened each day?|
Belize Camp Day 1 of Hearing God in Living Color – August 10 kicked off with some training of leaders in the morning which resulted in breakthrough for many of them! We led them through the basics we were preparing them to take kids through. Then, in the afternoon, together we led children age 7-11 in hearing God through art, journaling, and dance. It was an incredible first day.
Belize Camp Day 2 – August 11 was increasingly powerful. Our morning worship time with the leadership was under an open heaven. Constance, one of our FCC teammates, kicked it off with a reflection and music. The young leaders opened up and received more of God and encountered him. We got to pray over several leaders and lead them to experience more breakthrough and freedom.
Later, I had the joy to individually pray with each Director – Joey and Heather and lead them through encounters with Jesus. They received profound pictures and truths from the Lord.
The young leaders came together and presented the major truth lesson of the day lesson using coconuts – something the kids now will never forget! It was awesome!
Later, after camp, 2 men who lead a recovery ministry in the states arrived and we all shared stories over supper. Later, Constance and I enjoyed a late night swing in the hammocks by moonlight I am amazed at all God was doing in connecting the dots. So much was flowing and syncing!!
Day 3 of the Belize Camp, August 12 – Hearing God in Living Color was for age 11-13 and it was another powerful day starting with miracles of deep healing already over breakfast! 😳🤩💕🙏🙌 This was followed by another powerful worship time and more breakthroughs in the leadership session! When the kids joined us, they continued to encounter God through various stations of art, dance, journaling, and other fun listening activities. Each day got better and better!
On Day 4 of the Belize Camp, August 13, we started the day with a treasure hunt with Jesus. It was incredible. We asked the Lord in only 3 minutes for clues to find his treasure – his people who needed prayer and encouragement. (See video enclosed.) In the afternoon, I had the joy of leading several of the teen leaders through one on one sessions to encounter Jesus. There continued to be breakthrough and tears of joy hearing God speak. In the evening, I led the entire crew of female leaders through a teaching and activation around Luke 10. More tears and breakthrough. The guys enjoyed a hike and campout which we hear was amazing!
On August 14, I continued with the joy of leading several of the teen leaders through one-on-one sessions to encounter Jesus. In the evening, we led the group of teen leaders and adults through a dinner feast and communion with fresh bread and homemade sangria. We led them through the great exchange at the cross surrendering all our sins, sorrows, and weaknesses as Isaiah 53 reveals and received in prayer from the Lord, His healing and forgiveness. We invited people to ask for prayer and we prayed for many of all ages. Many encountered Jesus that evening both in communion and in prayer time afterwards.
On August 15, on our last day in Belize together, we played and rested with a boat ride to an island to enjoy some swimming and snorkelling in the beauty of Belize. I even captured some video of a stingray swimming past us. 😳
|A group of us asked God for clues and He led us to people who needed encouragement and prayer. We were amazed!|
|Our lovely Freedom Coaching Circle teammate, Diane Sheffield (pictured 2nd from left beside me) got the original idea from the Lord in prayer one day – to do this camp in partnership with Joey and Heather Barrs of A Better Belize. Diane followed through on what He gave her, and connected us to see God move in incredible ways! Constance Galubenski (pictured 2nd from far right), also an FCC teammate, did each of our colourful t-shirts tie-died by hand. Just seeing the colours each day brought smiles to our faces.|
It was incredible to do life together!
Thank you to all who prayed for us.
We’ve already been invited to come back for a follow up camp next year!
