“The fatal metaphor of progress, which means leaving things behind us, has utterly obscured the real idea of growth, which means leaving things inside us.”
 
G.K. Chesterton
 
 
A SLICE OF FRESH BREAD
 
My car has two pedals. One – the brake pedal – slows it to a stop; the other – the gas pedal – makes it go. I need both to operate the car effectively. 
 
We all need a brake pedal to slow us down and stop us when danger lurks ahead, and a gas pedal to keep us going even when the road is narrow and steep.
 
Peter knew the significance of both pedals in our spiritual development. When he penned his letter of 2 Peter. He said, “For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.” (2 Peter 1:5-7)
 
In the middle of this staircase of spiritual development, Peter emphasizes self-control and perseverance. Self-control slow us down and warns us away from dangerous situations. Perseverance keep us going when the road is rough and the going tough.
 
As we end 2017 and enter 2018, remember to check your brake pedal and your gas pedal. Use self-control to avoid the dangers of life, and perseverance to make progress despite the challenges ahead.

PRAYER REQUESTS and PRAISE REPORTS
 
PRAYER REQUESTS
 
CCI-Spain asks for prayer for the following:
  1. Ask the Lord to give the Spanish CCI camp leaders and camps a good year end in many ways – spiritually, physically, financially – and a great thankfulness as they look back on 2017 for His glory.
  2. As always they need help with understanding our Lord’s plan for 2018. Ask the Lord for His vision for the coming year that will glorify His name over all other goals. 
  3. Pray for the last details to be put in place for the January 17-21 Annual CCI-Spain Conference. 
  4. Pray that many will sign up for this time of blessing and sharing. 
  5. Ask God to bless Michael and Denise Perry, Jim Cain and many others who will be giving workshops and sessions, that they experience the power of the Lord in their lives and follow His leading.
 
CC-New Zealand has a Leadership Fast Track event mid-January with approximately 10 young people attending. This will train some chosen young people to be facilitators in Adventure based Learning. Pray there will be the right young people on this training week.
 
CCI-UK trusts and prays that all their fellow associations will have a blessed and peaceful New Year. Please pray for a blessed national conference to encourage and fill CCI-UK delegates as they set off into a new year of ministry.
 
Please pray for Christian Camping Community Malaysia's (CCCM) plenary for 2018 in the coming weeks. The CCCM has many challenges that will come their way next year including having a formal line-up of its office bearers, registration as a formal organization, being part of the Asia Pacific Rendezvous as well as two major events in 2018. 
 
CCI-South Africa asks for prayer for unity in their country. They are also trusting the Lord for good seasonal rain. Please pray for safe traveling and stay of all their members during the holiday season. And join them in praying that the Lord will give them wisdom for the new year and what He wants us to do within CCSA.
 
Jan. 20-March 23, 2018 CCI-Latin America will begin a 10-week training course for program directors in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. They are praying for 25 people to attend, representing 12 churches/ministries. The fruit of this 150-hour course will be the creation of 12 brand new camp programs (one per church/ministry). They will work in teams and will be accompanied as they walk through the 12-steps to creating and planning a camp program. All the steps are documented and their graduation depends on their handing the final recompilation. Pray for them to be able to get one mentor (former graduates) per group since that has been the key success factor. Many groups don’t know how to work as a team so the mentor helps them along the way.
 
CCI-Russia is excited to celebrate 25 years as an association at our national conference in February 2018. Pray that God will cause a record number to register. Pray also that God will provide the right person to join the national office staff in the role of Training Programs Coordinator.
