We had an awesome morning today as we traveled to an awesome place called Foster Falls. It was a blue hole (spring) with a nice overlook and waterfall. It was chilly, but a great place to swim and hang out as a church. We had a few brave souls climb and jump off a ledge.
We returned to camp for some free time and to be able to spend a relaxing afternoon together made for a really great day.
Our last chapel and worship time together was really powerful as Tim continued to unpack this concept of Christ as King and living in His Kingdom. Over and over he has emphasized the work of Christ on our behalf and our inability to “be” a Christian. God continued to work in powerful way in all of our lives.
We shared a special huddle time after chapel where I allowed the students to simply share what God had done in their lives this week and any decisions or commitments they had made. It was a sweet time where God’s Spirit was really evident and moving in our midst. God is uniting their hearts and my prayer is that this week is more than just a “camp high” but really the beginning of a personal and corporate dependency that will carry us through the year.
We wrapped up the evening with the dodgeball competition and our teams did great, but didn’t bring it home this year. And to top the evening off (or actually early morning hours) I shared a special challenge with our upperclassmen.
This has been an awesome week for me personally. I love these hs students and count it a privilege to be here with them learning and growing alongside them. Be praying for our safe return!
