Fun as CCP’s First Ever “Mission Possible” Youth Camp Ends
Curtains came down on a two week’s thrilling Youth Vacation Camp on April 24th, 2015 at the CCP’s Community Center, Kawangware. Four youths gave their lives to Christ during the event dubbed “Mission Possible.” The camp attracted over 185 preteens and youths from Ngando and Kawangware. CCP partnered with Word of Life, Kabete for the first time to facilitate the event. Each day involved a service (praise & worship and devotion), group discussions majoring on the day’s devotion/topic and games competition amongst the participants divided into ‘Zimamoto’ and ‘Missionaries’ teams. Joshua Oyugi and Charles Chao from Word of Life led devotions on different days. The first week saw the topics major on the biblical story of David’s life. The week also focused on David’s relationship with God, Goliath, Soul and Jonathan and the application of the same in the present life. The last five days of the camp focused on life skills basing on the challenges and struggles youth and preteens were struggling with. The bible centered life skill lessons tackled topics on ‘Drugs and Substance Abuse,’ ‘Peer Pressure,’ ‘Music,’ ‘Sex and Sexuality’ and ‘Attitude’ respectively. The team also prayed for preteens and youths struggling with various issues in their lives in relation to the topics covered. The last day of the camp provided a highly charged games encounter between the two teams, Zimamoto and Missionaries. The two competed in electrifying crazy Olympics games involving tug of war, eating competition, sliding and dancing among others. Zimamoto emerged overall winners of the closely contested ten days’ games competition with 30 400 points leaving Missionaries behind with 30 000 points. The camp could not have ended without awards courtesy of Word of Life. Jacob Omondi and Milka Nyachoka emerged as the best Campers. John Kibera was the most disciplined camper. The three were given an opportunity to participate for free in a camp of choice either within Kenya or outside. Other campers awarded involved Jamila Imali and Franklin Aringo for being most social campers. Fridah Shitote and Martin Gachunga were the best sports’ campers while Joseph Amwayi was the most punctual camper. Stella Mwangi, CCP’s Managing Director, appreciated the Word of Life Team for their dedication and sacrifice in making the two weeks event a success. “We are honored to have you as our partners and we look forward to having even more events together,” Stella remarked. This was the first time CCP to hold a youth/preteens camp, a deviation from the usual Youth Vacation Bible School.
