There is simply no other way to title this post than in all caps. Children's Camp is the most high volume week of the year. And my favorite :)
16 5th grade girls. 4 counselors. 150 other kids from our church..... let's go. Here's what I did last week:
(PS The theme was about light and darkness this year.... thus, the glow-in-the-dark party)
(PPS Please note Ben's Prezidan Martelly shirt)

It was a fabulous week. It was my 9th year to do this camp, always with 5th grade girls. I accepted Christ there when I was a 5th grader. I started dating my fellow 5th grade counselor named Ben when I was a senior in high school there. It's deep in my heart.
Ben and I got home at noon on Saturday. Ben left again at 2:30 for Youth Camp, which begins today. He is going to be a family group leader (with our friend Phil- the one with the beard in the pic of the male counselors and boys in zipline harnesses), in charge of Bible study, recreation spirit, and love for about 12 kids in 7-12th grade. His team name is Cinnamon! Pray for him this week and for salvation and life change for the teenagers he's with.
