Well, we’re ending a great camp week and heading for home in the morning. Our students have learned more about Christ’s great love for the abandoned, the sick, the poor, and the oppressed. We are coming home with a greater love for our Lord and a greater love for each other. I think our students may also be coming home with a better understanding of the conditions that many in our world are living in. Hopefully they will think twice when they are complaining about their clothing or lack of the “top brands” when there are thousands who go without the basics for living every day. I think our students have better persepective today than they did on Monday when they arrived. May we live out the commitments we have made this week and may God be glorified in our lives and within the Youth Ministry of Morningside. Keep praying for our students. See you all at home tomorrow or at worship on Sunday.
Here is a video of Kristy Moore and Caleb Hoover at Adventure Rec at Camp on Wednesday. Kristy is doing the zip line and Caleb is finishing the high ropes course. Things are still great here at camp. We have just finished up our Thursday and are ready to head into our final full day of camp in the morning. Tonight Chase passed the cross on to Aimee.
Things are still going great at camp. It’s raining this afternoon – but the students are still having fun. Today we studied about the deep love God has for the poor and His desire for us to care for the poor around us. We looked at the parable of the sheep and the goats today. I am in the midst of trying to upload some video of our experience to the web. If I can get it to work – I’ll post it later today or this evening. Keep praying for us all! By the way – Jeffrey passed the cross to Chase last night.
