by Mark Cutshall Imagine standing on the back of a young teenage girl riding a 2,000-lb. horse cantering in a 60-ft radius circle while holding your stance, arms outstretched, for four, five, six, seven, eight seconds. Whoooa. During this actual move, one she’s done countless times, 15-year-old Alexandria Jaynes confesses, “As a flyer, I have no control of what my riding partners (“bases”) are going to do or even of the horse.” Talk about trust. It’s what Alexandria has learned ...

Camp Pastor Bo

Lives transformed when camp pastor tells his story

Miraculously, Bo’s father came to the Lord. The family reunited and began attending church. Bo heard the salvation prayer, and he prayed it from his heart. “I believed God was the real deal.” But his faith waned. Drug dealers became his close friends. Ripping off unsuspecting victims became his calling card. “I told God I wanted to change,” he said. One night on the phone, Bo’s best friend said, “I am the devil.” “I thought I was already in hell,” ...
