The Fusion youth just returned from an incredible week at Super Summer. Our B.L.A.S.T. team managed to come home with a gold medal for their victories in the camp games, but the true victory belongs to the LORD. While at camp, 18 students prayed to receive Christ, and one of those was a young gal, McKenzie, that came along with our group. Many of the other students also felt a deeper desire for God and His word, as they worked on developing the discipline of a quiet time at camp, some for the first time.

Pray for our Fusion Director, Joe and his leaders and our 18 boys and 14 girls attending Super Summer this week! Pray for their hearts to be sensitive to all the Lord is doing in their lives this week. Pray that His Word will not return void without accomplishing much in each of their lives. Pray for the Spirit to guide our leaders as they shepherd our youth.
