So four of us (Jen, Kelllie, Sharon, and myself) headed out to the church camp again to help with the youth camp.
We had a great time helping with the cooking, cleaning, and being responsible for the Bible teaching times.
The theme of the talks were, "If you really know God, you love Him. If you love God, then you obey Him. If you aren't obeying Him, you don't love Him. If you don't love Him, it's because you don't know Him" We had a great time talking about what it means to really know God and not just know about God. We then shared that if you really know Him you can't help but respond by falling in love with Him. Then lastly, we talked about obedience coming from a heart that loves to please God because He loves us so much as opposed to a duty oriented form of religion.
It was a blast. The young people were amazing. We were all quite impressed with their maturity and character.
Outside of what we came to help with, we also had a lot of time to relax. We played volleyball, card games, went canoeing, and even had a chance to go in the homemade tarp sauna some of the guys cleverly developed. In all everyone had a good time (even though the toilets I helped dig earlier this summer were getting a bit full). They were even nice enough to let us stay in the church camper - which was quite comfortable and shielded us from the biting bugs.
