WINDSOR, ON – Mission teams from across the US partnered with The Gathering to host three weeks of SURGE Camp. SURGE camps focus on the areas of sports and the arts as a tool to help the church reach into it’s community in Windsor, Ontario. There were a total of three weeks of camps that included sports coaching and instruction in the areas of activities like baking, woodworking, art, and karate. Mission teams from Springfield, TN, Juliet, TN, and Wilmington, NC joined with members of The Gathering to host the camps.
Pastor Garth Leno said, “As the children were submerged in the Word of God throughout the week, it became evident to us that the Holy Spirit was at work. By the end of week three, we witnessed several children trust in Christ for eternal life! We are now following up with their parents and talking to a few about water baptism.”
During the first week of camps in downtown Windsor, a number of Muslim families were among the participants in the camp. Garth asks for Michigan Baptists to pray with and for The Gathering for a great in-gathering of people for the Kingdom.
