My name is Melody and this year of camp will be my fourth year. Before my first camp I was really lonely, I didn’t feel important and I always felt like people used me, I even felt that way about God. But on the second day of camp I had an awesome encounter with The Lord and for the first time I opened myself up to the Holy Spirit. When I did I saw the Father’s heart for me for the first time. I knew that He loved me, and I knew that I have never been abandoned by Him. Since then I’ve been growing in the Lord and my walk with Him has been so rich and full.
