Come to OG Camp 2015

by

camp-slide-b-1024x576Many Christians are burdened about getting the Gospel to all the world, and they ask how they can get involved. Maybe you have the same desire. Maybe when missionaries open their hearts to you about the millions of lost people, your heart aches. You feel an incredible need to tell others about Christ!

Will you take an honest look at the people across this planet? How many of them will die without ever hearing about Christ? Millions? Billions? Now, what are you doing to help reach them? As you realize the condition of their souls and their need for Christ, you can make steps towards doing something about it. This is the purpose of the Our Generation Camp.

It is an intense week of Pastors and Missionaries pouring out their hearts for the lost. You will meet people that have the same passion as you to reach the world with the Gospel in our generation! You will have the opportunity to speak with veteran missionaries, and hear them tell their stories of how God slew the giants of Islam and Buddhism in the lives of the people that were reached! You can get involved with what God is doing all over the world! Take a moment to read what is happening at this years camp by clicking here.

 

directions1If you are satisfied with millions of lost people dying without ever hearing the Gospel, then don’t bother signing up for the Our Generation camp! We aren’t the camp for you! However, if you believe God desires all to hear the Gospel, and you want to have a part in His Great Commission, then join us this June 8th – 12th. Every choice you make forms the direction of your life. By your choices, where is your life heading? Who are you impacting with the Gospel?

Abortion and Buddhism

by

Man Praying

An article I recently read speaks of the guilt felt by Japanese families who have had abortions. Their buddhist background teaches them they have committed a terrible sin. In order to help with the guilt, they will regularly visit a memorial to their aborted babies. On occasion, they bring toys and notes in an attempt to appease their conscience. On the notes they write “Forgive us and be safe.” “Others fear retaliation for causing premature death and hope to make peace with their dead child who may haunt or curse them in the future. These unhappy ones are translated ‘hungry ghosts’ with an illusion to karma or punishment.”

Both Buddhism and Christianity teach us to value life and that murder is sin. The Difference is while Buddhism holds the guilt of sin over the individual for the rest of one’s life, Christ offers to pay for your sin. To the hurting mother, Jesus offers forgiveness. He loves them. He knows the sin they have committed, but he paid for all of our sins by dying on the cross.

I ask that you would pray for us as we take the message of our savior to Japan that the guilty would be made free in Christ!
