I grew up in Southeast DC with my mother and nine brothers and sisters. As a single parent, my mother turned to Central Union Mission for help. I was five years old the first time I attended Camp Bennett. At Camp Bennett we sang songs about Jesus - songs about His faithfulness that would carry me through tough times ahead.
My siblings and I had no idea the impact Camp Bennett would have on our lives. The Lord began to put a deep desire in my heart to teach. Last year, I served as a camp counselor, and this year I am going to be the Senior Girls’ Counselor! If it wasn’t for God using Camp Bennett to plant seeds, there is no telling how I would have ended up. Thank you for sponsoring children and giving them a chance to make a difference in life.
