We ADORE Camp Ladore!
Over the January 31 to February 2, 2020 weekend, approximately 140 young people attended the Camp Ladore CYC gathering in Waymart PA. There were attendees from all over: Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Canada, but the long-distance award went to California. Besides excellent classes we enjoyed football, card games and a hike to the waterfall.
Bro. Nigel Small, Moorestown, NJ spoke on “David: A Man After God’s Own Heart.” Here are some testimonials on what stood out for us:
The point Bro. Nigel Small had about our time being God-given keeps impacting me. He had wonderful classes and spoke with a lot of passion. Other than that, during free time I hid inside from the cold weather and played games with my friends.

I found Bro. Nigel’s comments about his wake-up time to be surprising, yet encouraging. He and his wife get up around 3 AM every day to the do the readings. Prior to starting this practice, they complained that by the end of some days, they were too tired to do the readings. This was frustrating. Therefore, they do them early in the morning as a solution to the problem. I feel this habit can be encouraging for others.
When Bro. Nigel gave the first talk, near the end of it, he brought up a point about time management. This talk really stood out for me the most. I haven’t been the best when it comes to freeing up time to talk to God. Ever since then, I have been able to at least have a moment with God each day.
