This weekend D, O & I head up to Camp Wild. This will be D & my 4th year & O’s 1st year. It is an amazing week of praise, prayers & fun. And weather-wise, it sounds like it will be filled with sun (and lots of it) this year. 130 kids will be packing their sleeping bags & flashlights and heading to camp this year. It is a place where the Holy Spirit is present & the kids are covered in prayer & can learn what a deeper relationship with Jesus is all about.
My prayer today is for everyone going, from the parents bringing the kids to camp, the campers, the AMAZING counselors, the lead team (my role this year), or to the Wesley staff. Would you please join me in prayer for all these people who help make this week happen for a group of kids who are our next world-changers.
I also want to say thank you to all the spouses & families that stay home & keep things going while we are serving – you are just as much a part of Camp Wild as us! (Thank you, babe, for supporting me in this ministry that is so very dear to my heart this season in my life & to our kiddos that stay at home while mommy goes away for a few days to serve. I can’t wait for you all to experience this wonderful place – I luv you!)
This year we will have a special time to honor one of our veteran counselors who moved home to heaven earlier this year. Chuck, camp will be so different without you here, but oh the joy you are experiencing in heaven, I can only imagine!
Isn’t this pic fun? This is our 1st year of camp…this little guy is now 10…10! What good memories we are making. Another prayer request I am asking for is just for my mind to continue to stay steadfast on Christ. This summer I’ve had A LOT of thoughts of last summer, with my pregnant belly & what our busy family of 7 would be like in the fall. Now, this summer, as I think of & pack for camp, my mind instantly goes back to me being pregnant a year ago & what that was like. It brings tears, to think that this year I don’t have a baby at home for daddy to take care of while I’m gone.
It will be a great week with God whispering to me daily, but my heart is still heavy.
My praise this week is a praise in advance for what God will do while we are at camp, because I believe He ALWAYS does great things.
What are you praying for these days?
What are you praising God for?
