Summer Camp, Love, and a "Wedding"



RACHEL JUSTINE IRMA CHRISTY
and
PAUL ROBERT VASQUEZ


Request the honor of your presence at their marriage on Friday, March 21st, 2014 at 7pm at the Quentin Road Baptist Church 60 Quentin Road - Lake Zurich, IL. 60047

Rachel was raised through the ministry of Calvary Community Church here in Tampa. She worked in Sunday School, Awana, Ranch, Friday night soul-winning, and Summer camps. Paul was a student at Day Spring Bible College at Quentin Road Baptist Church. He is a gifted singer with Sounds of Grace. They met at our Youth Ranch Summer Camp and there you are. When they had their first foot-race at camp and she almost caught him (I knew eventually she would), and she did. Paul attended our Camp for the last three years. This year I might put them on the same team. They are a sharp young couple. Rachel left our ministry to attend college there. Day Spring is a great college that we highly recommend. They turn out a great product. Pray for Paul and Rachel. As her Pastor I am as proud of her, as I know that Pastor Jim Scudder is of Paul.

Letter from Rachel
Hello Pastor Arnold!!
You're not going to believe what I did tonight with Moe. (Monroe is another one of our young ladies that was influenced by Youth Camp and dedicated her life to the Lord. She is also now a student at Day Spring). We watched my  encouragement  video that Calvary sent to me and I have to tell you I wasn't  feeling discouraged, but it sure did lift my spirits and reminded me of how grateful I am that I had a church that gave me a tremendous foundation. I can't help but look back and see all the wonderful people that had a huge part in helping me get to where I am today. I couldn't have done it with out you guys! I also can't help but feel old because I was reminded of going to Awana  and everyone seeing me "grow up". It's crazy to realize how far we have come. And it's funny to think that I've learned so much because back then I thought I knew something.
I just wanted to say hello and thank you for supporting me!

We also had another young couple with two children from Calvary attend Day Spring. He has graduated and is now starting a new church in St. Petersburg, Florida. Just love to see young people on fire for the Lord. Yankee
