How good and pleasant it is
when god’s people live together in unity!
We are very glad and blessed to have you joining here with us. Although we may be coming from very different backgrounds, we are one in spirit through our Jesus Christ. We will fulfill and experience His great works being done in the villages.
So we ask you to be courageous in speaking of His words and humble in serving the First Nations people. It is not for our sake that we go but it is for God that we are visiting and meeting his people. Put down yourself but let only Holy Spirit direct you.
We pray that you will experience greater love in His presence throughout entire preparation and mission trip of this year.
Training camp is a place where members of Love Corps participate in fellowship, restoration, and rejuvenation prior to their missions to the First Nations People of Canada. We believe that your own spiritual journey with Christ is just as important as sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, therefore training camp is a time for you. In that sense, training camp provides an environment and community devoted to self-care and reflection, while also providing group settings for fellowship with your own team, but also members of other teams from all around Vancouver and Canada. Through seminars, workshops and guest speakers it is our hope to equip members of Love Corps for the task at hand. In addition as much as we emphasize your personal journey, we also believe in the importance of being part of the one body of Christ. Through activities, events, meals, and general free time you will also have many opportunities to talk to others about their own spiritual walks, past Love Corps experiences and daily lives. Here at Love Corps we want training camp to be a place of restoration, rejuvenation, learning, and ultimately a fun and lasting memory. We hope that through this experience you not only grow your own spiritual walk with Christ, but also create many relationships and friendships that will last a lifetime.
Love Corps dispatches Short Summer Mission teams in 30 various villages located in Northern BC Fort St. James, Central Area Williams Lake and Vancouver Island. Vancouver Island team takes BC Ferries to across Strait of Georgia to get to Vancouver Island. Villages such as Ahousaht and Opitsaht can get by taking another water taxi. Northern BC teams drive up to Prince George and drive up more to get to the villages in the next day. One night in Prince George gets really spiritual where teams encounter the love of God through an overnight prayer. The total driving distance covered by teams is approximately 18000 miles, carrying 600 lbs of rice, 300 lbs of beef, 500 lbs of kimchi, 200 boxes of cup noodle, and so on. Driving to villages is beautiful where we get to witness the beauty of His creation.
This year, the theme is “In UNITY”. God calls his people to live in unity with one another, so it is important to make every effort of our lives to live together in harmony with other brothers and sisters in Christ. We have prepared interactive bible stories and activities we believe that God will work through us during VBS. We pray for all the kids you meet in the villages will encounter the love of God to realize how wonderful they are and the power that comes through the relationships such as unity in their families, friends, communities, and unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Jesus told us that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in Jesus name, He is with them. What an amazing promise!
“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.” – Psalm 133:1-3.
That is what we want to focus this year. Experience the goodness and pleasance when we live together in unity. When we love one another it is a reflection of the beautiful love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit for one another and for us.
