This past week, Campion Academy had the pleasure of holding the first Week of Worship with Dick Duerksen sharing memorable stories from the Bible and from his experiences around the world.
In his lectures during the week, Duerksen’s main point was to help the Campion students understand how much Jesus loves each of them. Eriane Saraiva, a senior student, expressed, “Learning more about Jesus’ love, was an amazing experience to me. Hearing that Jesus loves me so much and He will run to save me, is something that I will never forget.”
Daniel Camas, a senior student, agreed that God’s love was an important theme, “There are still many more things that we can learn about Jesus’ love. It is always something worth studying and preaching about.”
In addition to the speaker, a student-led praise team introduced the theme song “Never Lost”, making the worship more impactful. Jasmine Smittick, junior student, said, “The theme song reminded me that even through tough times when I don’t know where I am going or I feel lost, I remember that God has it all in control. No matter what happens, He’s already won the battle.”
Duerksen used his photography as a feature in his presentations. “The pictures that he takes reflect God's true character and His love towards us through the beauty of nature,” shared Sharon Vasquez, a senior student.
To finish the Week of Worship, Duerkson did a photography presentation of “Lions, Bears, Boobies and Bubbles” on Friday night, and a sermon called “When God Smiles” on Sabbath at Campion Church. The students of Campion Academy were left with the feeling of being blessed by Duerkson’s words and his teachings, and certainly knowing more about God.
