Whitemoor Lakes Youth Camp

Almost six years ago, Young Foundations paid a first-time visit to England to hold a youth camp. The outcome was phenomenal, as “Brother G” led the youth in song and worship like they’d never experienced before, and God’s prophet led them closer to Christ than they’d ever been before. Since that time, many youth have asked for another camp. Their request was granted on Friday, October 27, 2017. Below is a report from our VGR Europe crew.

On Friday afternoon, some 200 youth filled up the Whitemoor Lakes facility in central England. After many weeks of planning and preparation, the countdown came to a "zero". Youth and staff alike were in anticipation for this big weekend. A lot of prayers, love, and devoted service was put into this camp. Mix that with God's young heroes who have come prepared to receive a blessing from the Lord, and you've got a wonderful camp in the happening.

And a service is always that way. You usually get what you put in the service. We think of expectations. When you're expecting to find the Lord, if you come to a service expecting to find Him, He will be there. If you're come expecting to find something you could criticize, the devil will sure show it to you. So you could… Just whatever you're expecting, that's just what you receive.

The youth came charged and with plenty of zeal. Before indulging into the various activities, everybody enjoyed some time of fellowship with new and old friends. After supper, some wonderful songs of praise erupted as Bro. Stephen Tutani lead "I Say Amen, Amen, Amen" in English, and then in Shona. What an atmosphere to start off the first day of camp!

Just the singing and relaxing, and I—I just love that. I feel if we should just say, "Amen," and go home, the Lord would… It would pay us every one to have been here in this wonderful atmosphere.

On Saturday morning, a hot cup of coffee topped off with whipped cream lured the youth from their rooms before an appetizing American breakfast. Afterwards, youth enjoyed human-foosball, ping-pong, foosball, cornhole, "Nine Square in the Air", volleyball, and various table games. Others simply enjoyed some much-needed fellowship around the Word. The day was filled with non-stop entertainment until it was time for everybody to get ready for the evening banquet.

Several chaperones started setting up for the banquet in the late morning. It took several hours to finish decorating, finalize the audio, and comb through various details. At 6:30 PM youth started pouring into the banquet room with expressions of awe. After a brief welcome, lines were formed at the buffet tables where staff served deliciously prepared food. What a time of fellowship and relaxation! Truly eating accompanies fellowship.

Bro. Gerald introduced Bro. Stephen Tutani, as everybody sang "We’re Together Again, Just Praising the LORD.” This was followed by many other beautiful songs of worship. After we sang our national anthem, "Only Believe", Brother Branham was invited to the pulpit. The prophet brought the Message, "Be Certain Of God." What an uplifting, soul-stirring Message!

Such an anointing was present while the worship continued after the tape. A young staff member of the banquet facility, a Sikh from India said, "It's a good atmosphere in here, you've created a good atmosphere in here. They all look really happy."

A few sisters asked who chose the tape, and we told them Brother Joseph did. They said they were so blessed because they had talked all week about the things that Bro. Branham mentioned that evening. They said it was truly for them and many questions were answered.

After breakfast on Sunday morning, Brother Branham brought the Message "Then Jesus Came And Called". That morning, on October 29, the Master was calling. Brother Branham said, ”The Master has come and is calling on you. Do you believe Him? [Congregation says, "Amen."—Ed.] Then just raise up on your feet and accept Him, and say, "I believe You, Lord Jesus, right now. I raise up my hands, and I believe that You now heal me.” Everyone rose to their feet following this soul stirring quote. Truly the Presence of the Lord was there and speaking to many hearts.

After service, a sister came forth to be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise the Name of the Lord!

What a highlight weekend! Many youth expressed their thankfulness for the life-changing weekend, and how they wished the camp was longer!

Praise the Lord for His goodness as we continue to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

God bless you!
