Wow, so I know we skipped a day but we have had a ton of things going on:
Our first memory verse Ephesians 6:19 “Pray also for me that the words may be given to me that I may reveal the mystery of the gospel.”
Today’s memory verse was James 1:2-3 “Consider it all joy my brethren when you encounter various trials for you know the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”
Color war started off with a bang with almost all of the kids memorizing their verses. Color war can be won or lost based on memory verses.
Yesterday we had our annual counselor hunt. We did basketball, archery, and arts and crafts in the morning. Someone got two bull’s eyes. In the afternoon, we split into the electives. Campers had the choice of Dance, Improv, Arts and Crafts, horseback riding, and soccer.
We changed the name of our chapel time to Mishkan to reflect our heritage. Mishkan (meaning tabernacle) is where Israel met with the Lord for worship and guidance. We have also been teaching the kids some things about Judaism. Today we talked about the importance of praying for the peace of Jerusalem as it is instructed in Psalm 122:6.
Last night our Mishkan speaker taught about sharing our faith with boldness and he began his talk by singing, “Let It Go,” from the movie Frozen. The kids ate it up and joined in.
Tonight Bobby, a counselor from Brooklyn who is planting a congregation, taught the kids about encountering difficulty. It was also his birthday so we sang to him and he shared his cake.
We have been dancing to so many songs; Hava Nagila, Come Let Us Go Up, Mayim, and much more. Enjoy the pictures that follow.
