We finished our activity classes and then went to the pool.  After lunch we had camper share and it was so sweet to hear campers share what they learned. Many campers rededicated their lives to Christ last night and it was so fun to celebrate!!

Today was our tourist day! We had so much fun. We went on a tour of a Jade Factory and got to see many Catholic Churches in the city. It was awesome to see the history of the city.  In the afternoon we hiked a little bit to see the cross over the city. It was such a good view of the city! When we got back down the mountain, we went to a market and bought some fun souvenirs.  On our way home we grabbed some pizza and ate at our camp. We’re getting ready for our next session […]

What a fun, full day of camp! We got to enjoy the morning with a devotional time with our cabins and pray together. After breakfast we spent some time worshipping and going through our bible study about seeking treasure in heaven.  This morning we got to go to the pool which is a pretty big deal here in Guatemala. Many kids rarely, if ever get to swim in pools, so it was very fun to see the joy on their face!  After lunch, we played lots of different games, but one in particular really stole the spotlight. Turns out, both […]

Day 2: Campers are Here!

We woke up this morning to the most beautiful surprise. When we got to camp last night it was dark, so we’re weren’t able to see the camp until this morning. Turns out we’re situated on a hillside overlooking a lake and mountains… this isn’t Texas anymore!! We met the Guatemalan staff this morning and walked through what Pine Cove is and how camp works. We also got to play some fun icebreakers and learn some native dances!  Campers came at 2PM and we jumped right in! We did activity classes all around camp. We loved getting to teach Gaga […]
