Christ Embassy Hawaii hosted her 10th annual Higher Life Youth Camp from July 16th to July 21st, 2018. This year’s camp, themed ‘Supernatural Forces: Operation 10-in-1’, was attended by 120 delegates that journeyed from as far as Washington State, Alaska, Nevada, Southeast Georgia and American Samoa for a transformative 6 days.
The campers were awakened as early as 5am to the sound of group leaders chaperoning them to a time of devotion with the Rhapsody of Realities, followed by intense physical training for one hour. Throughout the day, they were bombarded with classes based off the teachings of the man of God, Pastor Chris, such as ‘Live Your Best’, ‘the Importance of Prayer’, ‘Victorious Living’, and 'Light Your World’.
In addition to physical training and classes, they also participated in homeroom activities, intramural sports, bonfires, movie nights, water baptism, Inner City Mission distribution, Rhapsody ReachOut, beach fun day and evening services. The ministry of the Word of God resonated in the life of a young man so much that his mother said, “thank you for what you did for my son at the camp. He never opened up to us the way he has since he came back from camp. He felt loved and knows he’s loved.”
“Success is based on right thinking, while failure is based on wrong thinking,” charged Pastor Leafe Amosa during the first evening service. “[God] has given you instruments – your mouth — to chart your course in life, your heart to believe, and your mind is where transformation and upgrading takes place,” he taught. The campers also attended the much-anticipated Deriso Concert, where they heard the Word of God ministered through music, dance and spoken word. It was a celebration of the Word at work; one delegate said, “Wow, I didn’t know we can have this much fun in church.”
HLYC 2018 was a supernatural success. The infilling of the spirit took place; souls were won and baptized into the kingdom. Testimonies from campers and parents continue to pour in as a result of how their lives were transformed at the camp. You can watch an inspiring highlight of the 6-day camp in the featured video.
