The medical profession declares that the number one killer is heart disease, but the fact is that ‘broken-heart disease’ devastates many young lives. From a human perspective, the issues are complex and overwhelming. Governments cannot cope with the task before them; their systems are at breaking point, perhaps most already broken.
The power of the Gospel however, heals the broken hearted, and Gospel camps have proved over many years to be places of healing. One example of this is given in reports coming from an SGA supported camp in Poland. Aptly named ‘Cardio 2017’, its purpose was to create a healthy heart by exercise and diet of both a physical and spiritual nature. Among beautiful surroundings of woodlands and fields, Gospel transformation takes place!
On first arrival, many of the young people are sceptical and unsure, but the presence and power of God at work through the camp programme begins to heal broken hearts, as some tell us in their own words.
