Junior Camp Report

We returned from Jr. camp yesterday and I have never slept so hard in my life. We had a great group of kids at camp this year and they really grew in their knowledge of God and willingness to serve him with their lives. Camp, for those of you who are not from church world is 18 hours a day of either team competition or Bible Study. There is not much room for anything else. The kids are away from TV and the computer, there is chapel and small group Bible study each morning, an afternoon of games, and activities, chapel each evening and a night full of games, if that were not enough there is even a devotion and prayer before bed. It is intense, but a real spiritual boost. Here are some of the pictures I took, Unfortunately I opted out of taking the camera to the hour long shaving cream war on Wednesday night. It was a mess, but I guess you can imagine 150 kids armed with two cans of cream each! Many kids made decisions for Christ with several accepting Christs as personal Savior.

The theme for the week was the Circus. I was on the clowns' team. (No comments) PS. I never want to hear circus music again.

Here is Abby, acting just like her mother!

Emma gives me that, "please stop taking a picture while I am eating

Never shy of the camera, Anna strikes a pose!

One of the stage settings. We had a pretty amazing magician, I mean illusionist as our speaker.
