They are a beautiful sight to me
This is no ordinary bunch of teenagers
Many of these wonderful people have sacrificed most of their summer thus far to go out and teach 5-Day clubs (backyard Bible clubs) for kids and to face paint and share the Gospel at fairs.
Now I get to spend the next two weeks with quite a few of them at our Camp Good News. These amazing teens are going to go serve the way Jesus did.
they are going to get their hands dirty playing in the sand
they are going to have about 90 kids crawling all over them
they are going to give more piggy-back rides than they ever imagined
they are going to wipe tears and give hugs
they are going to sweat it out in a hot chapel with well over 100 people a few times a day
they are going to get up early for staff meetings to pray for these kids
they are going to sleep in hot, stuffy cabins every night with rowdy kids
they are going to deal with many problems they've never had to face before
they are going to pray with and teach these kids
and they are going to work their tails off
The best part?
Most of them won't be able to wait till next year when they can do it all again!
It is a humbling experience working with these young people. please pray for them over the next two weeks. We all need your prayers for health, energy, wisdom, rest, unity, and servant hearts.
