It’s hard to believe that camp is almost over for us and the children. God has really blessed our time here – not only in through the activities, lessons and fun, but in the relationships we’ve been able to build. We ran our last full day of camp today. Tomorrow the children will leave after lunch.
We had a pretty routine morning with the stations, dance time and then swimming time in the lake. However our evening worship time was a little different. In fact, it started with a pretty spectacular showing from Volcan Concepcion. From what we could tell (we’re on the other side of the lake) a steam pocket exploded. You’ll see in the picture a steam cloud going up into the sky. It seemed pretty ominous and it did send ash sailing our way, but from what we hear, it is a fairly regular occurrence.
Tonight during our worship time, both the ballet girls and hip hop boys got to showcase what they’ve been learning and rehearsing. It was truly a God moment to see the beauty and joy on the faces of the girls in their outfits performing their dance. Likewise, the boys had a smile ear to ear when they were up front strutting their stuff. Knowing that most have never experienced an opportunity like that before made it even more special.
We capped off our night by throwing a surprise party for Debbie. This is her second year in a row to celebrate her birthday here in Nicaragua. We had a Nicaraguan cake and a time to sing to her and celebrate.
Tomorrow is our last day at camp… please pray that God continue to reveal Himself to these children and that He would use us in a powerful way!
