Being a 1st year Bible School student from England I had never been to a Winter Camp Meeting before. I was so excited from what everyone had told me. I was ready to have a divine appointment with God. I told the Lord, don’t let me leave 1 single meeting the same way as I walked in. Give me Holy Ghost downloads, show me whatever you want to show me. The Lord truly touched me at Winter Camp Meeting through Pastor Rodney-Howard Browne.
During the Camp meeting out of the 16 meetings that we had I served at all 16 meetings. I determined in my heart that I would also serve the whole way through the camp meeting, I was not just going to be a spectator and just sit through the whole meeting and see what I could get out of it for myself and just walk away but I wanted to be a participator, I wanted to jump in and serve and be apart of the team and the vision of The River Church. I wanted to serve and do it with excellence. Just like Jesus throughout the Bible, he didn’t come to be served but he came to serve.
Throughout the camp meeting during the busyness and through serving the Lord really dropped into my heart a Passion for his House. The Lord gave me a scripture John 2:17 “Passion for God’s house will consume me”. I got thinking the word “house” is not limited to just a structure or to a building. Paul refers to our bodies as “living temples” and the temple is God’s house. God totally showed me something new out of that Scripture.
It goes in line with what our Church and what Pastor Rodney was speaking about, It’s about souls its not just about having a passion for the four walls of the Church but its about us being consumed with the things of God, getting souls saved. Not just sitting down and expecting other people to go win the lost to the Lord but it’s about me getting up and being consumed with the things of God.
God really dropped this into my heart during the Camp meeting as well as other things. It was truly life changing and if anyone was to ask me should they attend the Camp meetings at The River Church without a blink I would tell you, you need to be under the anointing here at The River Church. God will change your life.
