“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and do not lean on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make straight your paths”.
A note from Lauren:
In 2011, I went on my first mission trip called the World Race. It was to 11 countries in 11 months. This journey was forever life-changing and helped me grow closer to God. Once I returned to the United States I took a year to pray about what would be my next step. God kept bringing Camp Brittney into my life, but I kept saying no. One thing I have learned through this is that when He calls us to serve we need to listen to the plan He has for us!
In June 2012, I had the opportunity to meet with Dayna Bledsoe about Camp Brittney and immediately in talking with her about the camp I knew that this was where God was calling me. Two weeks later, I was headed to Costa Rica to serve during the July winter camp. After returning to the United States, I started praying about the opportunity I had with The Brittney Strom Foundation. In January 2013, I started full-time with the foundation. My responsibilities are to be a support to all the Camp Brittney and Strom Bible Institute missionaries, help host short-term mission teams when they are in Costa Rica, and help to raise awareness of The Brittney Strom Foundation. God has done some amazing things in my life and I am excited for this journey with Him!
Lauren’s Prayer Request:
-God to reveal His will for every area of my life
-Direction in assisting with Camp Brittney
-Fundraising and Promotional ideas for Camp Brittney
-A office for Camp Brittney staff in the States
