It's clear why we came to New Jersey. We came to deliver the Good News to people who needed hope in something that cannot fade away or be destroyed. Youth and adults from Wake Chapel have been split up into different crews along with 600+ other people forming around 50 projects.
Those projects vary from running a VBS camp, painting a house, repairing a porch, gutting an entire first floor, roofing, and many more.
Susan Ortiz is one of the two first aid coordinators for the whole camp. Needless to say she’s been quite busy.
Our day starts with a 6am breakfast and we start working around 7:30. Local churches bring us lunch during which we have a bible study right on the work site. We try to invite others in the neighborhoods to those bible studies and in fact a lot of every crew’s time is not only spent working to complete their project but also visit the many neighbors and spread them about the gospel. Our group alone out of the 600+ have already come across people who have never heard the gospel. Wake chapels youth and adults are eager to share their personal stories of how God has impacted their lives. We’ve only had one day at the job site and already our endurance is being tested. The days are hot but not unbearable. We are uncomfortable in many ways but are not letting it deter us from building God's kingdom.
