For details on all the ministries in Chicago UBF, see our annual report booklet, pp. 29-56. This report will omit Chicago, not because it isn't valuable but due to time constraints, so that we can all try to learn what God has been doing in all the other chapters. The following is based on annual reports submitted by local chapter directors. If a chapter isn't mentioned tonight, it's only because no report was submitted. Though there are so many ways God has been working, this report tries to focus especially on the development of student work and the raising of leaders.
The Great Lakes region held our annual Youth Bible camp from June 16-18 at Missionary Peter and Ruth Yoon’s home near East Lansing Michigan. In all 35 children attended from ages 2-18. The theme of our camp this year was “Dare to be a Daniel.” The focus of the camp was to help youth form their spiritual identity based on the life of Daniel and his friends. Our Bible studies and discussions centered around the following key questions.
How do you define your identity? How do you make choices? What is the basis of decision making?
