What an amazing time we had. We tell kids it will be the best week of their life, then we back it up. It’s incredible. If you have never been to a Young Life property I highly recommend it.
Yesterday was very relaxed. It was another hot sunny day. As usual, the evening was the most memorable. It was banquet night so kids dressed up and took pics all over camp. Dinner was fancy – as we were served steak. Yes, steak! This was followed by an award night where kids walked the red carpet. Awards were given out to kids who did something funny or quite memorable. It was an impressive night. After some free time, where me and my guys played 4-square, we went to club.
Club was awesome. We sang so loud – maybe the loudest singing I’ve heard in a club in my 13 years on staff. It was a blast. Mike did another excellent job. This time, describing how we can begin a relationship with Christ. Due to a storm outside we couldn’t go out for 20 minutes of silence. Instead, we sat quietly under dimmed lights. Kids pondered, prayed, and reflected on camp and life. The night concluded with the work crew and summer staff singing and one boy sharing his faith story. It was great for us having one our boys, John Prentice, serving on summer staff.
We had a boy from our cabin start his faith journey and a few others from our area do likewise yesterday. There may be more. What I do know is that each kid heard the gospel clearly this week. And that their leaders loved them well. The rest up is to God.
Pray for our bus ride home – not only safe travels but also that leaders could continue with deep conversations with kids. Thank you for reading these camp blogs and most importantly for praying.
