It’s My Time
BURLESON, TEX. – Registration is open for the Southwestern Union’s Pathfinder Camporee, “It’s My Time,” to be held on Oct. 28-31 at Lone Star Camp in Athens, Tex.
The Union and its five conferences have been prayerfully planning and preparing for the camporee, themed “It’s My Time.” 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 theme, “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 shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
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 that we see at our club events such as a camporee is 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.
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.
