An update from Rachel, the team leader in Mistissini:
The camp in Mistissini is going great. I am so thankful everyday that we are able to spread the love of Jesus freely with these kids. We sing songs everyday about the love of Jesus and other Christian songs. The kids' favorite by far is a song written and sung by Hillsong kids called 'Jesus is My Superhero'. The kids go crazy when we sing and do actions for this song. It is so cool to see the kids singing the songs throughout the day just to themselves.

We had a superhero day with the kids in which we were able to talk about the only true and real superhero who is God our Father and I was able to explain to them the gospel that day and tell them why He is my superhero. One boy came up to me afterwards and told me he had Jesus in his heart.

We are having a friend and pastor from Mistissini in to talk with our kids at the camp tomorrow. He is going to also be sharing with our kids stories from the Bible. I am very much looking forward to seeing how God uses this answer to prayer. It will be nice to have someone who can speak in Cree to these kids.

We have not been without opposition, however. The first week here we especially had a great spiritual battle as many of the kids in our camp were seeing demons and our whole camp was in huge fear. We sat our kids down and told them not to talk about this stuff anymore as we have a God who is much bigger than all this and is watching over us and then we prayed together with the kids. God surrounded us with love from people all over, including in the community, who came and prayed over our camp and with us. Something that Satan wanted to use to tear us apart instead truly brought us closer together.

God has been so good. Always answering in greater ways than I could even ask or imagine. I look forward to finishing strong with my team here in Mistissini.
