Georgette Issa has been in a wheelchair since the age of one. For her, leaving the house is a tough and pricey task. Not only must she pay for rides, but she must check if there is electricity, so she can use the elevator to move in her wheelchair.

When she was scheduled to speak for one of the days at the Baptist Children and Youth Ministry (BCYM) camp, she knew she might have to cancel coming to camp since she can’t use the stairs.

At Issa’s place, the power typically shuts off at 7:30 a.m. But this time, the power was on! Making the most of her good luck, Issa got ready to use the elevator. She waited downstairs for three hours until her ride arrived. Issa was eager to speak in camp, to share the gospel, and to tell campers about the love of Jesus and his work in her life. For her, it was worth the wait.

This is just one story of how God turned challenges into testimonies during the three-day camp.
