Our second full day of camp started with calisthenics and a surprise visit from Acheing, a former beloved counselor who was able to spend the day working with us. After breakfast, there were cabin devotions followed by a worship time in the Mishkan (chapel). There was a Yiddish moment this morning instead of a Hebrew moment, and it was led by Israel Cohen. He taught several Yiddish words including the days of the week. Then our campers were busy with soccer, gaga ball, human foosball, basketball, arts and crafts, and the challenge course in the morning. After lunch, everyone split up into special electives including horseback riding, street hockey, arts and crafts, improvisation and drama, dance, boating, rock climbing, and soccer. The camp-wide game of the day was a counselor hunt. Yael and Elisabeth managed to evade capture completely! After that, there was some free time where campers could swim, ride horses, do arts and crafts, head to the gym, or just relax. This evening, we had more worship time, and Mitch Forman followed with a great teaching on the legacy of faithfulness, using the example of Moses in Numbers 20. The evening ended with a game of dodgeball. Although the campers were worn out, everyone had a great time!
The campers are doing well memorizing their daily Bible verses. Each day, all campers memorize the verse and recite it to their counselor. Today’s verse was Deuteronomy 6:4–5:
“Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”
Please continue to pray for us!
