Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

Sheepdog is 20 years old and from Florida. This will be his first time at Camp Thurman but far from his first time working with children. In the past, he has worked with kids during VBS, AWANA, and as an instructor for martial arts. He just finished his second year at Liberty University in Virginia studying Criminal Justice. He plans on going into law enforcement of some kind, hopefully at a federal level, but possibly at a local level, either way the passion the Lord has given him is to help people. Again, Sheepdog has never been to Camp Thurman before, but regardless he sees it as an opportunity to have a positive impact in the lives of dozens of kids and to help them grow as kids but also to grow in their faith, or maybe even bring them to a saving faith in Christ in the first place.
