In 1519, Captain Hernán Cortés landed in Veracruz to begin his great conquest. Upon arriving, he gave the order to his men to burn the ships. There was no going back.
In our lives, we need to “Burn the Ships”, giving ourselves no option to go back. Not returning to a life of bad decisions, sinful choices, and friends that distract us. This summer we are taking camp back in time - Egypt and a young man named Joseph. Joseph kept his focus always forward with God, giving no thought of what could have been or sinful desires that would take him away from God. Through the difficulties that other people and life threw at Joseph, he was an example of character and following God.
