Capernwray for me was rehab. The wheels had fallen off and I was walking a very dark path. I had grown up with all the answers, and two parents who chased after Jesus with all that was within them, but I never embraced my faith fully. Capernwray was a place where I could examine myself, fall flat on my face in worship, and wait on the Lord to do the work in me only He could do. And He has.
...Lord I believe, help my unbelief. - Mark 9:25
It is beautiful. There are heaps of sheep. The culture is super laid back. There are tons of swell things to do out there. (In reference to NZ)
I never understood what it meant to have a personal relationship with Christ Jesus. My life used to be a rollercoaster dragging me to the quenching actions of sin. But then I met Jesus Christ; the man who chose me; who rescued me. The peace that fills the deepest voids in my heart is indescribable. While I still face many challenges, I am confident in the saving power of Jesus Christ; my Lord and Saviour.
My experience at Capernwray was a phenomenal experience and deepening of my faith. New Zealand is a gorgeous country and the staff at Monavale love where God has placed them. I highly recommend if God is tugging at your heart to go.... listen. It will enrich your life.
