A “pow wow” was a term for a Native American gathering of different tribes or groups to meet and for celebration. Today the term has been adopted by Royal Rangers worldwide for camps that involve different outposts & groups to fellowship and honour God.
The 4th Central District Pow Wow this year was, by far, the largest turnout for the biennial district event with 450 campers from various churches around Klang Valley.
80 Rangers & leaders from KL#1 were truly blessed to give up the first 4 days of the May school holidays in exchange for a time of wholesome fellowship, fun & games and spiritual renewal.
Although it rained almost everyday at the campsite, Nur Laman Bestari, in Ulu Yam, all activities and challenges continued on smoothly. The spirits of the campers were not quenched as they reflected on the theme of the camp “More Than Conquerors”, taken from Romans 8:31.
Among the many testimonies from the campers, here are two:
“My favourite part of the camp was
the flying fox and praise & worship!”
~ Tristan Raj, Discovery Ranger
(and first-time camping outdoors).
“I thank God for the Pow Wow. I had a really good experience at the camp. I learned how to be more than a conqueror in every situation. It helped me to be independent.”
~ Veny, Expedition Ranger (Calvaryland).
Praise God too for 13 friends who were invited by our own Royal Rangers to attend pow wow, of whom one of them responded to one of the evening altar calls for salvation!
A big thank you to all the Rangers, their parents and the leaders for participating and contributing to make this wonderful gathering a meaningful Pow Wow.
