Venezuela Nazarenes experience God at camps

Jiraquito, Venezuela
From August 6 to 23, Venezuela Nazarenes experienced the presence of God at the country's annual children, youth, and family camps.

The Nazarene camps are held every year during the school holidays for three consecutive weeks. People from different parts of the country, including friends of local church members, attend the Nazarene camp in Jiraquito.

The three camps reached nearly 800 total participants this year. The sermons, workshops, and other activities were led exclusively by national leaders, district superintendents, ministry coordinators, pastors, and Nazarene Youth International district presidents.

The youth camp's theme was Metamorphosis. During the last night, district superintendents performed a symbolic hand washing for the youth, which represented personal purification. Young people spontaneously hugged each other while crying to God for his spiritual transformation.

The campground consists of 129 hectares (about 320 acres) planted with nearly 200,000 pines and is located in the mountains at 1,050 meters (3,444 feet) above sea level with a climate that ranges between 12 and 19 degrees Celsius (53 to 66 degrees Fahrenheit). 

Over the years, the church built comfortable facilities, including a large sanctuary that holds up to 500 people. Until recently, U.S. Work and Witness teams continued to improve the place, but after the departure of Nazarene missionaries in 2008, national groups were organized to work on construction projects.

Venezuelan Nazarenes appreciate the prayers of the Nazarenes around the world for the camp.
