We hope you’ve enjoyed this past week of GMBA Camp posts! A huge thank you to Sister Linda Scolaro for bringing the spirit of the gathering to the Gospel Blog. 

Today, we leave you with the camp theme scripture, Matthew 18:11-14:

“For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.”

GMBA President Brother Jim Lambert asked the campers to take everything they learned over the week and compile it into a “how-to manual” that they can refer back to for spiritual support when they return home. 

So, our question is for those who attended camp — are you out there? Maybe sitting in the back of a car or waiting to catch a plane or about to board a rollercoaster at Kennywood? — Please post a comment sharing a piece of your personal how-to manual — your top takeaways from GMBA Camp!

This article has undergone ministry review and approval.

    Our camp theme song is Sheltered In the Arms of God. I woke up with those words. I am going to start with keeping those words close to my heart for starters of my how to manual.
