Green

What a great last day of camp.
I can't express how amazed I am at the way God works.
It was a smooth day transitioning, from ceremony to games to crafts and snacks, to lessons and closing.
WOW.
I can't believe that a year of planning for this camp is all over.

Here are some pics from this beautiful last day of camp.
it was quite an effort, but we got the entire camp of campers, snack people, drivers, crafts people, and counselors in this one big picture.

before you look at this picture, remember that we belong to a church with only one child in the congregation.
and that child did not even come to Bible Camp.
and look at the evidence of God working in this town.

He brought this group together for the week.

Isn't it incredible???
5 churches are represented here as well...the body of Christ working together is such a privilege.

Our stage game had to do with our counselors racing to drink all their juice out of the babysitter's baby bottle.

We had one last day of outdoor water games.

here's one of the songs from today:

today, i was sick with a cold, cough, and sneezing.
i did not think i could last the day, but it was so cool getting the energy to finish through. i prayed about that.
after camp, a couple of the counselors came over to our place to hang out until we met up with
a family whose kids went to our camp.

they wanted to do something special for the counselors, and invited us to a picnic at the Kingspoint park.
it was so cool to sit and talk with this family-we wouldn't have met them if it weren't for Bible Camp! They were great!
Photobucket
they cooked TONS of food for us.
it was incredible and so sweet of them.

I told Luis he could bring one friend to the picnic with us, and we brought his buddy with us, jang, who was a great camper and good listener.
but they ended up having a bunch of their friends from school there, and they even got someone to letthem borrow their lil boat.

we ended up playing a bunch of games with the kids, talking with the parents, and the kids even requested we sing some of the camp songs.

it was a long, crazy, but fun day.
I am so thankful.

God so evidently worked this week in our church, community, and in my heart.
Praise God for a successful week of worship and serving Him.

Wow - that picture of all the kids gave me goosebumps. I know what you mean... that is totally a God-thing. I know He loves to see the body of Christ working together for His glory, and He orchestrates things so that when it's all said and done, we can only step back and say "WOW, God, only YOU could have made all this happen." What a blessing. We're so thankful for you guys and that He has you working here in Storm Lake!
