What is SHERPA?

Hello friends and family!

This is my blog for my summer experience with OMC (Outdoor Mission Camp) and the SHERPA program. I am so excited about going to Maggie Valley, North Carolina for eight weeks this summer to learn and grow in Christ. Here is the link to the OMC web site and a short discription of what SHERPA is all about.

So what is SHERPA?

SHERPA

The Himalayan mountain guides that selflessly enable, support, lead and guide the world’s most renowned mountaineers to reach the highest peaks.

 

     Outdoor Mission Camp’s two month training camp where young adult leaders, ages 18-26, develop skills, knowledge, wisdom and confidence. Three weeks of intensive Bible training, personal discipleship, wilderness skills, and certification programs, followed by five weeks of hands on coaching as young leaders apply themselves directly to evangelism, love, and adventure with kids. Then it’s on to South America to teach indigenous missionaries to use camp as an evangelism tool. OMC will prepare young leaders to work in youth organizations, share their faith, and serve God in the mission field.

I will be writting more as the summer gets closer and the specific plans come into play. For those of you who are praying for me and my experience please continue to pray for God’s provision! Right now I am struggling to raise the funds to make it to Maggie Valley. I’m not worried about it because I know God is faithful to provide, it would just be nice to know that everything is taken care of. I thank everybody who has helped me so far and are praying for me as I get ready to go! God is good all the time, and all the time God is good!
