Day 4

Posted Jan 6, 2018

Today was our first full day of camp and it was filled to the brim! The campers and counselors all want to take full advantage of the sunlight so we started with an early breakfast at 7:00 this morning. After breakfast we had a camp wide worship session- a couple of our American staffers mentioned in our nightly meeting that it was the best part of the day because of the picture it gives of every tribe and tongue worshipping God like John talks about in Revelation!

“After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,” Revelation 7:9-11

After worship everyone split into individual devotional time and then followed with group bible study time for most of the morning. After lunch and siesta we taught warball and played for almost an hour- they LOVED jailbreaks!

Later in the afternoon we split into three groups and rotated through stations where we learned survival skills. Each group learned to make a compass out of a leaf and needle, how to make a fire and how to make a lantern out of a coke can. We are apparently using our newly learned fire skills to cook breakfast tomorrow camp-out style. Stay tuned for how we do!

Tonight we had our normal club and then played a game that the El Salvadorian team came up with. It’s called Christians vs. Romans and the campers were all Christians and us counselors were all Romans. The Christians all hid around the campsite and we chased them around and took them to jail if caught. The only way they could get out of jail was sharing the gospel with the jail keeper! Their goal was to find Paul- hiding somewhere on the grounds of the camp. The kids (and the counselors) had a TON of fun running around in the dark tonight!

Please continue to pray for unity between our staff and the El Salvadorian staff! And that Jesus would be evident in the way we love our campers despite the language barriers. We serve a God who is so much bigger than any barriers on this earth.

  1. Looks and sounds like a ton of fun! What a great opportunity you all have to serve and glorify Him. The tiredness will now begin to set in, but remember it is not your strength that will accomplish the rest of the week, but His. We are praying for you all. Love you Kadoodle!

  2. Ok seriously intrigued by the idea of a compass made from a leaf and needle 🤔

    I love hearing the story of the activity and how intentional their team is. You guys are awesome! By the time you read this, you’ll only have one full day left. Leave it all out there and love well. I know those EARLY mornings can wear you out, but here’s what we know is true: “He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11:25). Praying that your soul is refreshed knowing that your work is not in vain!

    Also, any speech blunders?! Haha I would love to hear! Give the people what they want! 😏

    Love you guys! Praying!

  3. I enjoy reading the blogs everyday. You all look very tired. Praying that God will give you renewed strength to your mind and body. Thank you all for going there and spreading His word to those that don’t yet know Him. Love you Kadoodle.
