Finally Getting Around To It!

As I (very briefly!) said, camp was very good. This was my first time in several years actually getting to hear the messages, and that was my favorite part:o). Bro. Paul Morrison was the speaker for camp (click here to listen to the messages) and preached on being an unmovable teen. He started off at church Sunday evening preaching from Acts and I would really encourage you to go listen to the message if you can. I believe you will be blessed and challenged by the preaching of God's Word.

While at camp, we learned a new song about Naaman and how he went to the river and got dipped seven times. Here is Jon and Bro. John leading the action part of "Dippy, Dippy, Dip"!

Everyone was divided into four teams and each team was named after a mountain (in keeping with the unmovable part). Here are the Mt. McKinley girls ~ my team! ~ trying to stay in pyramid formation long enough to win some points.

The house where the girls stayed was about 3/4 of a mile from the preaching. Normally I wouldn't mind the walk, but it was c-o-l-d out, so two ladies nicely drove us back and forth in the vans. This particular time there was only one van at the preaching place, so 28 girls and counselors piled into the van:o). It was a lot of fun!

The Internet is a great place to find games! This game had 6 parts to it: 1 person shoveling, two people skiing, three Vikings screaming (don't ask), 4 people bobsledding, and so on and so forth. The point was to randomly eliminate people by calling out "3 people... now 5 people...". Here we were acting as a 4-person bobsledding team:o).

This game was all about protecting the egg on the inside. Each team was given: one egg, one bag of straws, a handful of rubber bands, a packet of tissues, one glove, and some krazy glue. The point was to keep the egg unbroken after being dropped. Three of the eggs survived the initial drop (sorry Jen!), but when the senior boys from opposite teams threw the eggs, they were all broken:o). Hey, it entertained the girls while the boys played football:o).

I'm so glad I got to go to camp... Bro. Morrison was a challenge to me and to many of the campers as well! Thanks for praying... God is still working!

Actually, not an internet game (well, it wasn't found there) - that came all the way from Indiana.
