Gospel Impact: Janice's Story

Last year was our first time running a summer satellite camp in Bohol. Janice was one of the campers that week and here is how her story started last year.


Janice comes from a big family with 11 siblings. Her family does notbelievein the Lord. She was exposed to the gospel way before the camp but it made no difference in her life. She still did what she wantedand blamedGod for the things that did not go her way. During a Bible hour at camp, she heard the gospel and was followed up by her counselor and there she decided to whole heartily make it right with God. She saw the difference in her life right after that. If things go bad she would pray and still praise God. She continues to read her Bible even though she’s mocked by her family. She adapted the pattern of doing a quiet time from the summer camp program sheet and does her quiet time by going throughdifferent books of the Bible on her own. She said she was thankful to WOL and to the staff for bringing WOL camping to Bohol. Not only did she have fun but she also began an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ.(Written by WOL Missionaries, Jesil & Bambie Butihen)




Janice attended camp again this year! The Saturday after camp was over, she was baptized. She is growing spiritually as a member of a local church and has expressed the desire to be in the ministry someday. She is the first Christian in their family and has been persecuted by her father. She told our team that she has to hide at the back of their house just to do her quiet time. She is praying to volunteer as STC (summer camp helper) next Summer.



Will you pray with us for Janice and the many other young people like her who have attended or will be attending one of our camps this summer!



We thank the Lord for your partnership in the gospel!
