SUMMER TO REMEMBER

Lets reflect…
As I look back over our summer and reflect on our theme and all God did, I can’t help but be truly speechless. The
theme for our 2018 summer was “A Summer To Remember” and that is exactly what it was! This summer over 55 youth
and elementary aged students had a chance to go to summer camps. If you haven't heard by now all 31 junior high and
high school students accepted Christ into their lives at Teen Camp! That was a week that we will never forget! We saw
lives transform in front of our eyes. He spoke in ways I have never seen!

There were over 100 kids who got to participate in VBS and be impacted by God’s love through those who made VBS
possible. We had over a dozen Student Leaders helping to lead students during VBS which was amazing to see; they
took this opportunity to learn from others as they stepped into various roles.

These types of events and programs don’t happen over night, they can’t even be thrown together in a weeks time; our
leaders and team members put countless hours into preparing places and spaces for young people to encounter God’s
amazing love. On top of our awesome team we had over 100 volunteers help to make this a “summer to remember”, not
to mention the countless individuals and churches who gave towards our summer events and programs. These 100
plus volunteers represented 14 different churches. It is the body of Christ at work to build His Kingdom and we truly
saw God working. He continues to work in and through us as we reach young people in the Phx area. This is what it
takes, you can look all through scripture and no movement of God was lead by one individual, even Jesus had His
disciples to help accomplish His mission. When we unite as followers of Jesus through prayer, service, worship, and
more we advance His Kingdom; the kingdom of God grows and we see moments in time just like we did this summer.
“A Summer To Remember” will echo into eternity and we won’t see the full effects until that day we meet Jesus in
Heaven. Thank you to all who made this summer possible, we pray God will richly bless you for your sacrifice to
serve Him. - Caleb Reed, Director

Summer Intern Experience “For from Him and through Him and for Him
are all things. To Him be the glory forever! “
If you know Aim Right pretty well you know we offer internships based off a full year
but did you know we also offer seasonal internship experiences? You have permission to jump for
joy!! Please meet Aleisha. You might recognize her from previous posts on our social media page,
blog, or newsletters, she might be famous by now. She served a years internship with us back in
2016-2017. She really couldn't keep away. She was back this summer as our Summer Intern and boy
were we ever glad! We love Aleisha and our kiddos do as well. Aleisha noticed that she had no big
plans for the summer so she took an interest in giving back. Yay!!! With one phone
call we had her whole summer booked (sorry but not sorry). We like to keep our Summer Interns busy.
She was able to participate as a Camp Counselor (you HAVE to read our blog “Most Successful Camp
Yet”) at Teen Camp, helped out with VBS set up and organization, along with community service
projects. On her time off she did run to a few coffee and ice cream shops with our teen girls. Yup, It
was a summer to remember! Thanks, Aleisha, for your time as our Summer Intern.
We appreciate all you did!
