Our First Goodbye

Posted Jan 7, 2018

Our first session of camp ended today and it was pretty bittersweet.

Saying bye to our campers brought lots of tears- from us and them! We jumped and screamed bye as they left on their bus to go back to the city.

This afternoon was pretty special. We spent some time worshipping in English and Spanish with the Guatemalans and then Mario shared a devotional. He even translated for himself! It was so sweet to get to worship together and a neat opportunity to build unity and re-center our focus on the Lord.

We had quite a bit of free time and hung out, played cards, sang lots of karaoke (in both languages!) and rested up for our second session of camp that starts tomorrow!

Two big prayer requests came out of today- the first, that campers would make it back home safely, would be able to connect in a church, and continue to grow in their walk with the Lord. Second, we were expecting about 50 campers for the next session, but we’ve had a bunch cancel unexpectedly and for no reason. Be praying that the Lord provides campers and brings people to camp so that we can share the gospel!
