NBC Camps Maui, 2011

NBC Camps Maui, 2011

Attended my first NBC Camp with my daughter that I love. I thought the camp was for her. I was wrong. God was speaking to my heart as I sat in the gym observing camp all week. I didn’t know it at the time, but a CHANGE was coming. A change of HEART, a change of lifestyle. I gave up drinking & smoking cigarettes…cold turkey, is the way Fred & I describe it! December 31, 2011 (New Years) at approximately 9pm, I took my last drink of alcohol. I couldn’t stand it. It was a bitter taste in my mouth. Talk about conviction!

I loved basketball growing up. That’s all I had. I gave up my passion for basketball after playing JV my sophomore year in high school. Eighteen years later, God took my passion I had as a kid and gave it back to me so I can navigate my course in life back to Him & use basketball as a tool to share Christs’ love for others.

My family and I immediately started going to church. The Burton faith has grown, we have New Eyes, a new outlook on life, a life with Christ.

I believe that the work that we are doing here has started a New Belief System for others.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
