   My name is Jenna Kurfis and I have the joy of serving on the Beulah-on-the-Road Team this summer!! Since this was my first year at Beulah I was pretty nervous, but from the moment I arrived, I have felt so welcomed and cared for. The entire leadership team has been extremely supportive and encouraging. The BOTR leadership team has been discipling us through morning devotions and sets aside time for us to have our own personal quiet time. The Lord continually overwhelms me with His peace and His strength. Camp weeks can be long and strenuous, but I’m learning to give myself grace when things don’t go as planned. I’m trusting that God’s plans are always best! He reminds me everyday that I can do hard things with His help. God brings Isaiah 41:10 to my mind daily which says, “Do not yield to fear for I am always near. Never turn your gaze from me, for I am your faithful God. I will infuse you with my strength, and help you in every situation. I will hold you firmly with my victorious right hand.” It’s amazing how this one verse changes my whole attitude. It reminds me that the Lord promises to give me everything I need!  

   It is so fun meeting our campers at the beginning of the week!! The kids bring so much energy and enthusiasm into our days, and it’s especially awesome to see them grow in their walk with the Lord. One of my favorite parts of being on BOTR is worshipping with our campers. Many of them may start the week just singing words that have become familiar, but as they better understand who God is, they begin worshipping with their whole hearts! Hearing all their voices sing out, “All my life you have been faithful, all my life you have been so, so good!  With every breath that I am able, I will sing of the Goodness of God, “ melts my heart every time!! Psalm 28:7 says, “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him!” I just know that the Lord is glorified as He hears the praises of these children!!

   The Lord is so amazing and I thank Him everyday for giving me the opportunity to serve with BOTR this summer and share His love with others. I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store as He works in and through me this summer!!
