Elevate :: Day 3
It’s hard to believe that we hit the halfway point at camp already. God has been faithful to meet us here on this mountain and is doing an awesome work in the lives of our students already. Tonight was no exception as we took a look at our understanding of Christ as King and what it means to surrender our lives to Him as He relentlessly pursues us with His love.
But earlier we started our day enjoying beautiful weather and God’s majestic creation with morning worship on the overlook. It was a great start to our day and set the tone for a cool day filled with His presence. I am always amazed at how much easier it is to hear God and respond to God when the distractions (TV, music, etc) are gone and we are here on this mountain.
Today we had our caving excursion and although they took some great pics, I forgot to get the memory card so I could upload them. They came back pretty muddy, but had an awesome experience. The rest of us hung around camp and participated in all kinds of activities.
We wrapped up the night with the volleyball and basketball tourneys. We didn’t fair too well in basketball, but we had both of our volleyball teams advance almost to the point of playing each other in the semi’s, but fell short. It doesn’t look like this will be the year we bring home the trophies, but oh well.
Please continue to pray for us as we are asking God to do an extraordinary work in all of our lives. Pray that we would respond to the prompting of the Holy Spirit in our lives!
