Campfires and banana boats
I write in anticipation of our first ALL STAFF (my day camp staff amounts to 40) campfire where we will be sharing banana boats, some pretty crazy campfire songs, a little word from the Lord, and maybe a few testamonies. I am really excited to see what God has in store for our summer, starting with the staff that will bring joy and life to the camp. The weeks of preparation for our counselors is always draining and sometimes a little boring, but once they get here the wave of energy and excitement begins. Yesterday as they were rolling in there was new life on the property and nerves starting to kick in for those that have not experienced camp before. Tonight at the campfire really gives them a glimpse of the beauty that is CAMP. Tonight as I prepare to help lead the campfire, and ultimately the rest of training, I am praying that God will give me the words, the energy, and the encouragement to help these staff bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the campers. God is good and his work is a blessing. Here we go!
