Wednesday Youth Service

Prelude: The orchestra played “Are You Washed in the Blood?” with “Glory to His Name.” Then the choir sang “This Little Light of Mine.”

Featured Testimonies: Kelsey Hopper testified that she received salvation when she prayed at home by her bedside at age eleven. Olivia Osunkwo was thankful the Lord sanctified and baptized her two years ago at the Portland camp meeting, and since then, He has been her strength, helping her through a difficult nursing school program. Ricky Mixer told how he came to camp meeting expecting a blessing and was disappointed when he didn’t receive sanctification on Sunday, but on Monday morning as he was driving to work, the Lord answered prayer and sanctified him. Tim Hammer said that while praying for his baptism, he learned that he doesn’t need to be courageous; he can let go of fears and let God be his strength, for God is able to do all things. Katrina Baros shared how she was burdened this past year by a situation, but prayed and God miraculously resolved the problem.

First Special: A young ladies’ quartet sang “Power of the Cross.”

Last Special: Matthew and Sarah Budean (pictured above) sang “Lord from Sorrows Deep I Call.”

Sermon: Sola Omolayo of Richmond, California, took his text from Romans 8:1, assuring that because of the work Jesus did on the Cross, anyone can be free of condemnation with one prayer of repentance.
