Well, here we are. At church camp. With the frogs. And the locusts. And those one things with a bunch of legs.
All bugs aside (and under my chair), I can tell from just one day of being here that church camp is exactly where God wants us to be this week. I’m watching our oldest son love his life as a camper. I’m watching our three other boys jump right in with their kitchen and canteen duties. I’m seeing Matt engage in meaningful conversation with youth and young adults. I’m experiencing God’s work through me as a teacher to teenage girls. And I am beginning to form relationships that I believe will be very important this week and into the future.
All I can say, is that this – this is the joy we experience when we listen to and obey God. That is why I’m here – me, the one who doesn’t “do camp.” God called me here for so many reasons. It is rich. It is beautiful.
And shucks, I haven’t had to cook a meal or wash a dish since I arrived. It’s a vacation, service opportunity, growing experience all in one. :)
