When Jordyn arrived at camp for the very first time, she didn’t have a Bible, knew nothing about Jesus, and was experiencing a difficult home situation. Shaelyn was also a new camper, coming from a family where there was little Gospel influence.

Two young lives were about to be radically impacted by the life-changing hope found in Jesus.

“I had no idea how much this Jesus would change my entire life.”

Sixteen years ago, eight-year-old Jordyn arrived at Manitou Lake Bible Camp for the very first time. She didn’t have a Bible, or know anything about Jesus. But He knew her.

Jordyn returned to camp again and again, each time learning more about God’s great love for her. Camp was a safe place, a refuge from a difficult home situation. And then, when she was 14, it all clicked.

“Suddenly all the messages I heard over the years of Jesus rescuing us through the cross became real to me. I felt like I literally collapsed into His arms. That summer, I knew I found the greatest treasure possible.

Shaelyn met Jordyn—and Jesus—at that same summer camp, and those encounters made all the difference. Although she initially didn’t have any Gospel influence at home, at 15, Shaelyn gave her life to Christ.

“Camp was one of the most influential experiences of my life,” Shaelyn says. “God taught me about His character through scriptures, and showed me my sin and my need for a Saviour.” 

The girls stayed connected through the years, encouraging one another in their newfound faith. 

“God was so gracious, giving me that friendship,” says Shaelyn. “We encouraged each other, read God’s Word, and prayed together. That really helped us get closer to Jesus, to take those steps toward Him.”
