I serve with the camp team as the program director. My main responsibilities are skits, games, and leading meetings. I help everybody at camp get enthusiastic and cheerful. When we are in between camps my task is to get new games and skits for the next camp. I also help lead youth meetings in different churches.
I grew up in a Christian home, my father is a pastor and so I heard God's Word since I was born. Unfortunately, all stories from the Bible were like a fairytale to me, I hated going to church because I found it boring. As far as I can remember I have always been a misbehaving and a very selfish child, everything revolved around me. That is how I lived my life.
One day as I got home from school, nobody was home, which was very unusual, it had never happened before. I thought that the rapture had happened and since I wasn't saved, I didn't get to go to heaven with my family. I felt very alone, and I prayed. I realized that I was a sinner and that I needed God, I asked for forgiveness of my sins. I believe that was when I got saved. At that point I didn't know what it meant to live a Christian life and follow Christ.
I was 16 years old when I came to the WOL summer camp and one year later I had a chance to be a volunteer as the program director for 6 weeks. Unfortunately, very soon it became pretty obvious that I was still living a very selfish life and it affected my ministry as well. My ministry leader then talked to me a lot about serving Christ and what it should look like in practice. Those talks helped me a lot in getting on the right track. That summer I realized that my life only has a meaning if I am living for God. I have been living by this principle, working full time in ministry, and planning to do so as long as He wants me to.
