Day #2

Posted Jan 6, 2016

Hola, Austin here again. This was our 1st full day of camp, and it was an absolute blast! Yesterday’s post consisted of all that we did in English, but now we are going to take it to the next level. Below is a rough outline of our daily schedule but in Spanish.. google can help, if you don’t understand 🙂

Levantarse

Tiempo a solas

Desayuno

Pine Cove’s time (we lead a group game)

Estudio

Tiempo Libre

Cena

Predica

Worship

Circulo de la Amistad

Buenas Noches

At Pine Cove most of our relationships are built through shared experience – a couple examples are laughing together through a skit or having fun at activities. Here in Panama, it is no different! The staff (both Panamanian counselors and Pine Cove staff) spend all day with the campers, so that they might build friendships in order to have the opportunity to speak truth into their lives. The Lord has already been very gracious in allowing campers to open up to their counselors and our staff.

There has been much time spent in prayer here that the Lord would work mightily. We would love for you to join us in praying for the deepening of relationships and for smooth communication with our Panamanian friends, so that the Name of Jesus may be proclaimed!

Adios!

*Our team is still all well and healthy!

"The Slab" - this is where a lot of our staff go to spend time with God before the day starts.

On the right is Oliver, he is our interpreter. He lived in New York then San Antonio from middle school until beginning of college. Oliver is a huge blessing to our team because he understands both cultures. He not only translates words - he allows us to communicate!

This is after the all camp game today. It was a mix of capture the flag and throwing paint sponges.

  1. Barry and I are praying for your time in Panama. May you be able to share the gospel with every move you make, song you sing, dance you move and word that you speak! God knows your heart’s cry is to know Him more so that you can be a beacon to these who need to know. Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16

  2. Hey Elley and Sara!! Hope y’all are still enjoying Elleys dads limericks as much as I still am haha. So awesome to see campers there with y’all, having a blast. Praying boldly asking for the Lords hand in the relationships y’all form with campers and staff. Love y’all!

  3. This is so exciting to read about! Praying that year 2 brings depth and understanding to both the PC staff and Panama staff. Can’t wait to hear all about what the Lord does in and through y’all!

    And happiest birthdays, Sara!!! Hope you get the Panamanian birthday rap you deserve!

    Love, Bedhead

  4. Been checking the blog a lot more often than posting and just reading again what the Lord is doing. Keep focused on the mission as I’m sure you are all getting really tired. And don’t get too embarrassed playing soccer against your campers 🙂

    And Happy Birthday Sara! I hope the slab is treating you just as well

  5. Keep up the good work! Those campers are so blessed to have each of you pouring into them. I would imagine many of you are feeling very tired, so I’m praying for supernatural stamina and energy in your last few days.

    Blessings to you all,

    Christy Gore
