Prayer guide for Camp Under The Son 2011

Prayer support is vital for the smooth running and maximum spiritual benefit of the camp. To this end, below are daily pointers that will help you to focus your prayers on the activities, campers and leaders. The CUTS leaders really appreciate your commitment to this and pray that God will encourage you as you share with us.
