We have made it through our first full day of camp and it has been a long, but great day. We started early as usual and had a jam packed day full of excitement – from dodging thunderstorms, to a late night game of manhunt, and even a surprise birthday celebration!
After our morning chapel we had some time created for the students to get alone with God out on the beautiful Kulaqua campus. We realize that most ms students aren’t probably don’t have many quiet moments with God on a regular basis, but that is a neat element here at camp that we hope will grow into an important part of their walk with Christ.
After lunch we had free time for all the activities around camp, although the kickball tourney was literally washed out by a big thunderstorm that rolled through. I got to spend a good amount of time down at the blob skyrocketing ms students that are quite a bit lighter than me (that was saying it nicely) into the air.
We had a great night chapel tonight in worship with Wayne and the band and then Mario continued expanding the reality of pain and suffering in the life of a Christian, but with the promise of Romans 8:28 that God is working for the good and conforming us to His image. It gave us alot to talk about in small group time.
We did celebrate Bailey’s birthday tonight and finished with a great game of manhunt. Tomorrow we have our snorkeling excursion for those going down to Ginnie Springs. Keep praying for us!
