Mission Trips


Campers Are Here!

Posted Jan 4, 2017

Greetings from camp La Joya! You may have seen our previous post with the news we made it safely to camp! No flight delays and no missing luggage (hooray!!) 

Just a quick post with a few pictures! 

At the Lima Airport:

Catching some travel naps 🙂 

We were so thankful for time to rest this afternoon once we got to camp before 50 campers arrived this evening! We all felt refreshed and more awake after a nap in a real bed 🙂 The campsite is beautiful and we love the cabins we are staying in! (More pictures to come!)

We did staff training and got to know our partners a little better…they rock & are very excited about camp! Then, we greeted campers as they arrived: 

Then we ate dinner together (spaghetti) and made up cabin cheers! 

The background noise as I’m typing this now is: Trent laughing at his campers, Trevor leading an all camp game (with Fulgham, Analiese and Caroline dressed up as animals haha) TJ trying to speak Spanish and campers cheering and laughing! All is well and camp is happening…doesn’t get much better than this! 

I’ll leave you with this last picture of our view when we stepped off the place today! Look at those mountains! 

We’ll post again tomorrow!
