Cofradia here we come!
Camp is over…..what? Our 5 days of camp have come and gone and we are sad to see campers leave? Last night we had some time for reflection and sharing with each cabin. We also had a campfire time that was lead by Brandon and Edda-our CCI program directors. This time was designed to allow the campers to think about their year and something that they are holding onto that they need to let go of. Though this was an emotional time for them, it was powerful to see the kids broken before The Lord. Each camper and counselor wrote down their sin, fear, hurt, statement, etc, on a sheet of fire and then placed it in the fire. We talked to Brandon after and he was very appreciative of our prayers and efforts and said The Lord was at work during that time. We were all encouraged and each counselor was thankful to see some fruit in the campers from the week with them.
This morning the campers were taken away for a special activity without their counselor. Each camper made a note or a gift to give to their counselors. We then had a time before lunch where each cabin came and presented the creations to their counselors. Don’t worry, many pictures were taken of these happenings! We also had two birthdays today and so of course we did the birthday rap! It was loads of fun!
We are now waiting on the bus to come back from dropping off the campers and then we will venture back to the town of Cofradia. Cofradia is where we will be staying for the next 3 nights. We are not sure what our exact schedule is for our tourist day, but they have mentioned many different options that sound fun and will allow us to see the sites around here!
We are all still doing BUENO! All of us are looking forward to rest soon and also some time to hang out and bond as a team. Please be praying for our travels and our health. Everyone sends their love and we are looking forward to sharing details of all our adventures when we return to the states!
P.S. We were able to be a part of an engagement here in Honduras! One of the Honduran counselors, Melva, got a proposal from her now fiancé Juan! He was in the United States and came to camp to surprise her and propose! They are getting married this Saturday! You never know what adventures you will go on in Honduras! We will continue to keep our eyes open!
