Too Busy To Blog

Posted on

I know it’s been almost a week since my last update, but there has just been no time to blog.  Since our trip to the concentration camp we have…

  • said goodbye to the team from Savannah, GA
  • finished the time with the Holocaust Survivors and said goodbye to our new friends from Israel
  • “flipped the camp” (aka lots of cleaning, preparing beds, etc.)
  • welcomed a new team from Rhode Island
  • planning and preparations for Ukrainian Children’s Camp
  • welcomed 80 kids and leaders
  • finished two very full days of camp

 

Our title of this camp is “New Me” – The Fruit of the Spirit with a garden theme  I (Rachel) was privileged to teach the very first lesson, in which I introduced the theme and taught the first characteristic – LOVE.   I made the kids recite the day’s memory verse (“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19), and they had to express love by giving me a hug, in order to leave the chapel for canteen.  It might have been partially a selfish ploy to get a hug from every single one of these precious kids, but I’m not ashamed to admit it!  😉

One of my roles is to put together a picture video for the evening session, so even if I don’t have time to write much, I’ll at least share those.  You’ll be able to see all the great things going on and pray over this week with us!
