Erica Henri, Sandlot counselor
To campers: “This will be the best part of the summer. This is where I kind of didn’t realized I needed this kind of community, but it became such an important part of my life. I was the type of person who would shut down and not talk to anybody and Ignite really helped me get out there and find people that I could be friends with and go to church with. I found people who would pour into me, community is the best part that really connected me to God.”
Prayer for Ignite: “I pray that Ignite continues to lead people to Christ and lead people to awesome churches and ministries in Austin, and I love it because it’s so awesome.”
