We had a great week with 5th and 6th graders at
Dustin spoke all week on the theme of Storyline: your life in God’s hands. He challenged campers to follow God as their Producer and parents as their Directors; to think wisely about what friends they let influence them when Choosing the Cast; how to Rewrite the Script by surrendering their lives to Jesus; how to Ignore the Critics by listening to God’s voice; and On Location, how to live the best life God has for them. They all wrote their “garbage” on paper that was put into a box which Dustin threw into the campfire one night. The campers cheered and clapped as they watched their “sins” go up in flames and disappear as permanently as God’s forgiveness for the sins we confess. Many responded to the gospel invitation and asked Jesus into their lives. It was exciting to see and we pray they continue to live their lives in God’s hands.
A few of the counselors were unicyclists themselves and many others were inspired to master the art throughout the week. Please pray for Dan, one of the young camp workers who just found out that his dad has cancer and only a few weeks to live. God can use this sobering time to draw many closer to Him.
