The Name Encamp
My name is Edna Kerubo. The name Encamp came to me as i prayed asking God which name (out of a list I had) He would prefer me to name my design business. While on my knees I offered that prayer and immediately after, an impression of the Holy Spirit in my heart impressed me that God’s preference was Encamp. I was ecstatic. God later impressed me to name this ministry Encamp. And thus it was. Of course the name Encamp comes from the Bible verse Psalms 34:17, which says: The angel of the Lord encamps round about them that fear Him and He protects them.
I was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2013 and that was the beginning of a new phase of my life. For four years I kept silent about this. It was my best-kept secret. I suffered alone, silently and painfully going through the motions of this new life, which seemingly had no meaning. All this time God was working on my heart. I remember instances where God encouraged me and pulled me through dark patches. His grace was truly sufficient. I’ve always loved to write; one day God deeply impressed it in my heart that I should write a testimony and share it with my friends. That was the beginning of me opening up and telling my story. 4 years after my diagnosis, in 2017, God put it in my heart to start a blog under the name Encamp, which I did. Later on, in 2018, God encouraged me to do YouTube videos with an aim of sharing the story of God’s faithfulness in my life. Looking back I now realize that God is using that which was meant to destroy me as the platform for this ministry. Glory be to Him and Him alone.
