In 1981, I went to Woodleaf and my life was CHANGED. I met Jesus Christ in a personal way. It was at Woodleaf that I first heard all that He had done for me, and that He wanted to be in a relationship with me. This was monumental -- that week in Tombstone was huge and would impact the rest of my life.
The picture below was taken the next summer. I was on Work Crew and this was from the Tableau. In the picture was my then Area Director Jeff Vancil, and my friend, Steve Valach. Steve went on to meet Jesus that week as well. The memories and decisions from that summer of '82 are equally impactful!
Since those two summers at Woodleaf I have been back countless times.... program director, speaker, and camp director. This past summer I was an adult guest for 4 days. I saw hundreds of kids gather for the Tableau... it made me smile. There is a lot changed from 1982 until today... and you know what - there's a lot that is the same.
Woodleaf - still in the business of telling kids about Christ and helping them grow in their faith!
