It’s My Time
BURLESON, TEX. – The Southwestern Union and its five conferences are prayerfully planning and preparing for the Union-wide Pathfinder Camporee, themed “It’s My Time,” currently scheduled for April 1-4, 2021, at Lone Star Camp in Athens, Tex. We are excited about this opportunity for our youth and young adults to learn more about Jesus Christ, to engage with nature, to make new friends and to work hard to earn honors.
Our last Union-wide camporee, themed “Stand Firm,” took place at Lake Whitney Ranch in Clifton, Tex. It was exhilarating to see over 4,000 Pathfinders and leaders. One of the most exciting things was to see precious lives decide to give their hearts to Jesus Christ and be baptized. There is no greater joy than seeing young people say yes to Jesus Christ, accepting Him as their Savior and dedicating their lives to serving Him. When I think of Pathfinder Ministries, I think of an army of young people trained to do the work of God and sharing this gospel with all the world as witnesses for Christ. I pray that over the last few years Pathfinders and Master Guides have been “Standing Firm” for Jesus Christ.
Our theme for the upcoming Union-wide Camporee in 2021, “It’s My Time,” is intended to let our youth and young adults know that it’s their time to shine for Jesus Christ! We have to shine at school. We have to shine at home. We have to shine in our jobs. Even during a pandemic, we have to shine for Jesus Christ! Our theme is based on the Bible passage in Matthew 5:14-16. Verse 16 says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Pray for our leadership teams as we prepare for this camporee. Let’s pray that we will “let our light so shine” and our Pathfinders will know that this is their time to shine.
