Testimonies From Camp

Here are some testimonies of the students…

Juan Diego was touched by the Lord the night the parents showed up. Even though his parents weren’t there, he was able to allow God to touch him, forgive his parents, and be freed. He cried for a long time and later said that it’s been a while since he’s been able to cry. He said he feels like a big weight was lifted off of his life and now he feels free and joyful. He doesn’t feel anger towards his parents anymore. Praise the Lord!

Jesus (Chuy) is the oldest of the Pastor Gollo’s four boys. He is also the last one of the boys to draw near to God. As we all shared testimonies together in a group on Saturday morning, he said that on Wednesday night he was able to open himself up to God something he’s not been able to do before because of his own pride. Wow! God touched his life and he has a sweat heart for the Lord. On that same Wednesday night I had a chance to pray with him. Chuy is a strong leader. Everyone follows him, the Lord told him that he wants him to lead people as a good influence, using that gift for Him. Praise the Lord!

Jose Angel (Chupa), a student that I’ve talked about a lot, was also touched by God. The final night at the concert, the worship leader at the piano called out a “Jose Angel.” He was in the front row dead center of all the youth. The leader gave him a specific prophetic word about his future. As an only child, with no mom and a drunk for a dad, this is something he needed. Lately he’s been a little distant from church. This was a true blessing!

Sandra is one of our older and more mature youth in the Lord. She was touched by God the night the parents came as well. As she went forward to receive a hug from one of the pastors, she said that she really felt like it was the hug of her father. She said her father has never hugged her nor told her “I love you.” The Lord dealt with her and the attitude she had towards her father. Praise God!


  1. WOW!!! I spoke with Sandy on the phone the other day. I'm so excited for what the Lord is doing in our youth! I can't wait to get back and see how He continues to work in them!

    Big things, my friend..big things in store!
