Back from camp and missing it already!

I spent a most busy week at our church's camp last week. I must say it is one of the most invigorating 5 days one could possibly spend. I just had to post a few pictures so that you all could experience vicariously with me. Hopefully it will be enjoyable to you. The Lord really works in the lives of the young folks who attend. They spend the next 12 months looking forward to the next year. My two granddaughters who went for the first time are already talking about how they just can't wait until next year!


George Mueller's life was taught through a play during the week.


Three of the granddaughters were "orphans."


One of the granddaughters saying her verses.
They had to memorize the first 18 verses of Proverbs 3.


A morning "scoop ball" game. Everything garnered points
for either a team or individual or both.


Bible drills every night.



Badminton tournaments.


Quizzes to determine who listened to the messages and matins
and vespers and the George Mueller play.


Volleyball tournaments.


Team spirit.


Go cart races.


Individual awards.



And then, there was the team award for the team
with the most overall points for the week.


Yea, GREEN TEAM!
I love camp!

"And they were bringing children to Him that He might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, He was indignant and said to them, "Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it." And He took them in His arms and blessed them, laying His hands on them.
Mark 10:13-16

Blessings to you all!

It looks like everyone had a blast! When my boys were young they used to attend VBS and had so much.

That sure looks like fun, alright! I loved going to Bible camp when I was a kid and also counseling some years later.

Wow , looks like so much fun. They did a great job dressing for the Mueller story! Camp is such a focused experience and such fun. Often hard on the ones who run it! But fun non- the- less. It is really neat how the Lord can work during these times, isn't it.
