Christians sail for salvation at Tahoe Jam

Provided to the Tribune

On Oct. 25, three to four hundred young Christians, both teens and young adults, plan to sail for salvation aboard the Tahoe Queen.

This will be the eighth year of the evangelical event, and this year the name of the cruise will be called “Tahoe Jam 2006.”

In the past the trip was paid for by local donations from churches and various individuals. The cruise has been a catalyst for faithful participants in the past and this year organizers are keeping the faith that the tradition will continue. On “The Boat” in past years, some local teens after hearing the gospel message of Jesus Christ have responded in a life changing way. A few of the young people having found salvation and deliverance through Christ, have even become youth leaders and had radical life changes as a result of meeting the Lord. Prayer is big this year! This year, locals are praying for a major out-pouring of God’s power to be present like never before. As a result of prayer, and God’s goodness, a good Samaritan real estate developer has already volunteered to pay for the entire trip so now any additional prayers are for musicians to get on board as well.

Also needed are adults to chaperone, patrol the upper deck (bring a jacket, gloves and cap), unload equipment and help in miscellaneous duties including check-in at boarding, lost and found, refreshments and clean up.
