2013-07-02 Summer Camp Day 3

As I reflect back on today, I’m so grateful to God for everything He’s blessed us with here at camp.  He’s answered our prayers for safety, fun, and spiritual impact.

Throughout the week, the teens compete in a variety of ways.  Our teens are on the Blue Team, and are racking up the points through cabin challenges, sports tournaments, and team challenges.  Additionally, both our guys’ and girls’ cabins are contending for Cabin of the Week. Prizes are awarded at the end of the weak for both cabin and team competitions.  It’s fun to watch them work together.

Each day has 2 chapel sessions, as well as a variety of optional breakouts throughout the week.  In the mornings we’re studying 1 John.  In the evenings we’re being challenged from the book of Jonah.

Please continue to pray for our safety and spiritual impact.  Wednesday night is the campfire service in which the teens will be challenged to let go of whatever they’re holding back from God, and to dedicate their lives to Him in a new and fresh way.  It’s at this very service that I dedicated my life to Christ for full-time ministry as a junior in high school.

Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite.  You can see them all at: https://www.oneeightyone.org/PicsVids/Pictures/tabid/44/AlbumID/517-97/Default.aspx

As you can see, our teens are having a blast. We’re also praising God as 48 youth trusted Christ for salvation last night.

This has been a very full and fulfilling week of ministry.  This past Saturday our Haiti Mission Team went to Stony Glen Camp for an all-day training and team-building getaway. What fun!

Summer is coming – can you feel it? As I think of the summer, I can’t help be get very excited for the opportunities for growth and service. I’ve spent a large part of this week prepping for our 2 summer camps and our Haiti mission trip.  Please join me in praying for each of these – that we would experience safety, and allow God to work in and through us in powerful ways.
