Family Camp 2011 Continued…. Don’t you just love the outdoors? The fresh air, the cool weather? Well I do! I especially love going camping in Prescott, AZ in September because that’s when our Family Camp is! This year, the members of West Valley Apostolic Tabernacle were extremely excited to go because it was our churches 10th Anniversary Family Camp! That’s a long time; ten years ago I was 5! So imagine how old you were? Family Camp is extremely awesome because it’s a big “church family reunion”! This year was the best, special thanks to the Rodriguez family for bringing their horses to camp for everyone to ride. It definitely went along with cowboy night! I know everyone loved all of the activities that were going on, especially the kids! They even got into a water balloon fight! The services were awesome! From that very first night on Thursday, there were definitely a lot of people receiving their blessing. The preaching’s were awesome as well. God told us through his word to unite and put aside our differences. I think that the youth were the most touched. We all were united by the last night and knew that this is how we all should be for the rest of our lives. We give a special thanks to Pastor Gilbert Balderas for giving an amazing conference on faith, and preaching at our youth service. He did an awesome job! Hope you guys had as much fun as I did and if you didn’t go this year in Jesus name, I hope you go next year! –Sis. Nivia Alvarado

Praise Like No Other I wanna praise my God I wanna praise like no other a praise so outrageous it never hits the floor a praise so deep it knocks on God's door yes praise Him like no other being has ever done before let us bring out a praise that comes from the depths of our core a praise like no other is not like the one of that sister or brother it is like that of a praise that the world has yet to know this type of praise is the one which makes even the mind, body, and soul glow this praise like no other is more than the hand raising & the lips that sing it is of the soul letting go for a moment to connect to the unseen it is the craving connection between a child & the king praise Him like no other let this praise be uncovered
and delivered to God from one brother to another so let us help each other bring out this Praise Like No Other! -Sis. Connie Melendez

Let us pray for our leaders.
Samson What exactly makes Samson a great Hero of Faith? Well, the Bible tells us in the book of Judges that Samson was a Nazirite and was set aside by God to do great things. In a way, Samson was held on a pedestal and rightfully so. He would single handedly slew thousands of Philistines in battle. He took a vow to never drink wine, nor cut his hair for if he were to do so, God would revoke the mighty strength that he had bestowed upon Samson and Samson would be delivered unto the hands of his enemies. Samson kept his vows towards God for most of his life. If we read his story, we learn that Samson allowed a woman to deceive his heart and Samson broke his vow with God; the woman cut his hair; and Samson was captured by the Philistines and brought to a temple to die. At the end of his life, while he was in that temple; Samson realized his faults and humbled himself before the Lord and with great faith, called upon God to deliver him once more. That day, Samson killed more Philistines than he did throughout his entire life combined. This teaches us that although we make mistakes, we should never lose our faith in the Lord and instead humble ourselves, confess our sins and trust in God to carry us through our trials and tribulations.
