Youth Together at Camp Mountainview.


“On the weekend of October 17-19th, over 60 youth and chaperones came together at Camp Mountainview in Northern BC. We ate together (Thank you Chef and volunteers!), played games together (Money, Money, Money…how do we spend and share our resources), ran the Amazing Race around our 125 acres of land, and worshipped together. We were privileged to have Cheryl Bear as our guest, and she shared stories, scriptures and songs with us. We talked about “Who are we…really?” and looked at our Identity in Christ! We read together the Prayer of St. Francis on Sunday morning, as General André Cox invited us to (on Facebook) that morning. We were all challenged to hear the stories of our elders; understand the history that we face in our country; and walk together into the future in love and respect. We are thankful for the history of The Salvation Army in Northern British Columbia and we recognize that it has deep roots in the Gitxsan and Nisga’a Nations, with over 20 youth from both these nations at this event; I believe that God is going to use us all to strengthen The Salvation Army in the future years. As we hear the stories of the past, as we share in both the beauty and the pain of our history together, these youth represent the future that we can co-author with God to bring healing and peace to our nations.”
– Major Karen Hoeft
