Much goes on during this time and it would be hard to capture it all but here are a few picture highlights from the time spent at the camp. I was not sure how this would all go this year having five young kids but the kids did awesome, so we are praising the Lord for that! This was the first year of Training where I considered packing winter coats and boots. It was very cold the first few days but eventually we moved to beatiful, warm days. Here are the girls all bundled up.
We were extremely excited to have my sister-in-law and her two kids at camp with us this year. My SIL helped in the kitchen and the kids had a blast playing with their cousins!
We set up a little nursery area in the dining hall. It made for a great place for the girls to roll around and play. They love to have the freedom to move.
Here is an example of one of the students teaching a Bible lesson. They are trained how to tell a Bible story and throughout the story pull out and share various points about the Gospel message.
This is the campfire down in this big sand pit on Saturday night. It wraps up what we call the Day of Prayer. It is an afternoon and eveing set aside for a whole bunch of activities focused on their discipleship.
She and I and my mother-in-law took all the kids to the zoo Saturday so they would have something to do during the Day of Prayer activities. We had a blast! Here is the little man with the otters.
The people here with Todd and I are our amazing staff. We are so thankful for each one of them and all the talents and gifts they bring to the team. On top of all that, we just have a lot of fun with them!
We got to go to an outdoor theatre and see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Coat on "Surprise Night", which is a night when we take the whole camp off sight and do some fun things just to give them a break. Here is the little man hamming it up with one of the teens.
All in all, it was a challenging but great two weeks. We faced some spiritual warfare but God walked us through it and reminded us that it just mean He was working through this camp and these teens. It will be nice to be home for a little while now.
