Watch Yourself

No evil dooms us hopelessly except the evil we love, and desire to continue in, and make no effort to escape from. ”
 
George Eliot
 
 
A SLICE OF FRESH BREAD
 
I recently saw my former water safety instructor. About 45 years ago, I took her class and became a certified lifeguard. 

I’m sure things have changed, but back then, we were required to swim endless laps, retrieve blocks of concrete from the bottom of the swimming pool, learn CPR, and right an overturned canoe. 

Most importantly, we learned how to rescue others without becoming a victim ourselves. We were taught to swim close enough to struggling swimmer to talk to them and reassure them, but not so close that they could drag us under with them. Only when they had calmed down would we put them on our hip and swim them to safety. 

Paul could have taught that portion of our class. He instructed the Galatians, “If someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.” (Galatians 6:1).

The world is a dangerous place, with many treacherous undertows and hazardous currents. Help wisely; we need more lifeguards and fewer victims.

PRAYER REQUESTS
 

 

CCI-Albania (RrKK) is making plans for a conference at ERSEKA May 4-7 with Shaun Thompson speaking. The Theme is "EMBRACE THE CHALLENGE" of Christian Camping, seeing “challenge” as a positive learning and development experience. Pray for good networking, worship and Bible teaching, for a good attendance and great blessings, and for the steering group of Asim, Anila & Ann as they organize the details and invite leaders to come.

Camp leaders from neighboring countries who attend CCI-Ukraine's seminars invited our instructors to their country to teach their own camp and church leadership teams. They are thankful for the opportunity and feel privileged to serve them. The next Camp Team Development seminar is scheduled for March 26. Please pray for health, journey mercies and wisdom for our instructors. Pray for open minds and hearts of the students to absorb lessons and to apply them in their camps.

CCI-Japan recently installed a board of directors. Please pray for wisdom and leadership as they try to reorganize each job to be more beneficial for all of CCI-Japan members.
 
Regional conferences are underway throughout Canada. Pray for safe travels and for God to minister to camp staff. Praise the LORD that He allows us to meet together for fellowship, training and encouragement.

CCI-Latin America will be offering an all-day training event in Tegugicalpa, Honduras in “purpose-driven recreation” on April 1. They are expecting leaders from churches, businesses (Human Resource Dept), and youth ministries to learn how to use CCI-Latin America’s Game Encyclopedia (1000+ fully illustrated games) and training activities.
 
CCSA would like to give thanks to all for continuous prayer and ask for prayer for the ones that pray
