Camper to Missionary: Sophie's Story
"Kids invite friends, the Gospel is faithfully presented, and many choose to attend camp the following summer!"
August 16, 2019
In 2009, the Roy family attended Camp Livingstone’s family camp. Sophie Roy was 13. As the years progressed, she and her brother and older sister served as cabin leaders and in other camp positions. Along the way, her church began TGIF, a Friday night kids and youth outreach.
Today, Sophie leads this group and a similar outreach in Sherbrooke. These ministries are follow-up opportunities to summer campers from these regions. Kids invite friends, the Gospel is faithfully presented, and many choose to attend camp the following summer! My daughter and sons, along with other summer missionaries, have volunteered to help Sophie at these clubs over the past few seasons.
Sophie started a year-round position as Camp Livingstone’s follow-up and discipleship coordinator in January 2019. Her objectives: continue this work, lead camp follow-up rallies, support summer missionaries in carrying out discipleship activities, and start two kids clubs by partnering with area churches in communities that have no outreach to children.
Please pray for Sophie and other summer camp leaders as they invest in children’s lives!
