Camper 2017 - Matthew M.

Transform Your World Evangelization Training Camp is a week I will never forget. It was an incredible learning experience on evangelization as well as an opportunity to connect with other Catholics my age who have the desire to live the faith in a radical, inspiring way. This camp has taught me how to grow in a deeper relationship with God through prayer, which in turn is the foundation for spreading the love of God to those who need it…Another thing I am very grateful for was the abundance of world-renowned Catholic speakers at the camp. My high school might be lucky to get one of those people to come speak in a school year, and we had all of these incredible orators going nonstop for a week.…

This shows the importance of TYW compared to other retreats. We were being trained to be soldiers for Christ, and now we’ve been sent out to the battlefield…I am so, so thankful for what has been probably the best week of my life. This camp would be a huge waste of time and money if I didn’t do anything with it, plus, there are souls on the line. If I don’t act, someone may miss out on getting to Heaven. That’s scary. I’m excited to really use my gifts from God to their fullest potential for His glory. The Great Commission will be my motivation as I go on with future endeavors in spreading the Gospel: “Go, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”(Mt. 28:19)
