Community service, canvassing, music production, Bible study, fellowship, exercises, and great camp food have been among some of the activities enjoyed by more than 30 young people on the west coast.
So many memories were created over the week of camp!
Coming away from camp, we were awed by the work that God had done in people’s lives. The youth of WA have been inspired to commit their whole life to Christ. Decisions were made to read the Bible more, to give up addictions whether it be media, sports or other addictions. Children and youth were inspired to change life habits, to give up unhealthy emotions, to be baptised, and of course, to be more active in their home communities. Praise God for the wonderful work He is doing in Western Australia and please pray for everyone involved in D’Sozo WA, that we will remain faithful until He comes.
"While I was at D'Sozo camp I was drawn closer to God. During the deep Bible study, the campfire times we spent together and daily devotions with my roommates, I learnt so many things about God that I had never considered before but were very uplifting once pointed out. I felt like I was doing God's work when we went canvassing and helping people with their yards. I can sum up my whole camp experience in just a few words - being drawn closer to God." - Rabecca H.
"D'sozo camp was a great experience for me it was great meeting new friends and growing closer to Jesus. At D'sozo camp we participated in various activities including Canvassing,help work and a music video. All of the activities were great fun but I enjoyed canvassing the most as it was interesting going from door to door and hearing other people's experiences." - Nobuntu S.
"I was a bit unsure of what to expect when I came to camp. But after I settled in, I loved it. ... I made new friends and enjoyed the food and the deep bible study. Canvassing was scary but I found I liked it, once I got started. The highlight for me was the making of the music video. I am inspired to read my bible more." - Emily S.
"The thing that most deeply impressed me about Camp was the consecration of the leaders and counsellors to Christ and His teachings. The impact they had on the children (and parents for that matter!) cannot be underestimated. For the first time, I could see what was possible when an "army of youth rightly trained" was put to work for the cause of Christ." - Jo L., Mum/Staff
"It has been almost 2 weeks since D'Sozo WA finished and I wish we were still there! This is the type of program our young people need to inspire, uplift and encourage them into a deeper experience with God. I know that the parent helpers at camp were blessed just as much as the campers. What a thrill to see our children mentored by Godly young people who demonstrated first-hand a living, personal connection with Jesus. Thankyou D'Sozo team for challenging us to 'Give of our best to our Master' and realizing the joy that is found in serving Him." - Kylie H., Mum/Staff
D’Sozo WA, 2016 was the first camp of it’s kind to be held in the whole state of Western Australia. 30 youth, plus staff and parents gathered together by the beach at Camp Kennedy about 25km out of Albany. For one week the young people ranging from ages 10-25, devoted their holiday time to learning how to minister to their world more effectively. Everyone took part in deeply spiritual and relevant bible studies and training sessions as well as having the opportunity to put what they were learning into practise in the afternoons - either in canvassing door-to-door work or helping people in their homes and gardens.
