Camp for GEMS Missionary Children Creates Great Impact in MKs

GEMS MK (Missionary Kids) department conducted a camp for the teen children of missionaries. 200 MKs participated in this camp which was conducted in partnership with Beyond Barriers in the theme ‘Game Over’.


The teens camp for the GEMS MKs was conducted at GEMS Polytechnic College (GPC) campus, Aurangabad from 29thSep to 2nd Oct 2017. Bro. George Ebenezer & team of Beyond Barriers, Bangalore ministered in this camp. MK Department Coordinator Sis. Christy Bance coordinated this camp.


Senior GEMS MKs and lecturers of GPC contributed through counselling the MKs and in praying along with them.


The Beyond Barriers team addressed the issues of Peer Pressure & Conflicts, Relationship, Quiet Time with God, etc. The practical exercise of 45 minutes’ quiet time motivated the MKs to practice it every day.


Activities and games encourage the teens and also taught them many valuable lessons.


One of the participants who did not believe in God, experienced His presence and love. Another who felt that there is no one to love him or her understood how much he or she is precious to God.  A teen struggling with suicidal thoughts understood and experienced the nearness of God in their life. The questions of many teens were answered.


In the Leaders Fasting Prayer conducted in 2015 there was a prophecy that the Lord will keep His hand upon the Missionary children and that He will remove the dirt of sin from them and will make springs to come forth from them. This prophecy was seen to be fulfilled in this camp.

Pray for their steadfast growth in the Lord and to stand in their commitments. 
Pray that they may receive the strength to withstand all temptations and to be victorious that God’s name maybe glorified through them. 
Pray for God’s great purposed to be fulfilled in and through them.
