We are finally home to stay! Yay! We had a great second week at camp. I must say that I feel much more comfortable in the kitchen, and it's also more restful than counseling. Looking over the two weeks, I think it was a nice balance to counsel one week and work in the kitchen the next. There was a lot of good fellowship working with other ladies, and we got to interact with the kids a bit too. I really enjoyed it!
There were no salvations this week, but there was a large response each chapel service. Lots of kids made commitments to the Lord. There was one girl who got saved the night before camp started, and it took a lot of courage, but she gave her testimony at the end of the week. She was a blessing! We had a bonfire the last night of camp, and many kids gave testimony of what the Lord had done in their hearts during the week. There's a feeling of satisfaction to have been a part of that, and to see these kids who were already saved and many who were already serving the Lord actively give testimony of how the Lord had worked in their lives.
We were pleased that the teen boy we took from our church really enjoyed camp. As we were leaving, he said he wished he could stay another week. The morning messages were focused on being a witness to those around us, and he seems to have been deeply moved and gotten excited about soulwinning! It's such a joy to see others get excited about things of the Lord, and we're grateful that Ryan could go with us to camp. He's already expressed interest in going next year and all the years that he's eligible to go.
Now to get back to normal life - whatever that may be! LOL I plan to sit down for a bit this afternoon and get my head cleared about what needs to be done this week. We'll make a grocery run, for one thing, and I need to start getting things in order for school again. I want to get back into my cross stitch, which I put away when we went to Texas in May and never really got back out again, and I want to do some sewing. The sewing may wait; I don't know. I'm just anxious to get back into a routine again. Looking forward to a new week!
