We’re really doing it!
The campers are here, the campers are here! They came a little earlier than we thought but that’s okay. We got to have some prep time this morning for the campers to come with setting up camp and our hearts to work with the Salvadorian staff to have an impact on these kids lives.
We were so excited when we saw the yellow bus arrived! We grabbed our stuff and ran towards the bus from our cabins. Once the bus stopped, we made a tunnel of excitement for the kids to run through when they got off of the bus. With chants like “Bienvenidos” and more that we learned, we tried to make them feel welcome to camp!
Once they were off the bus we gathered everyone and announced which cabin and counselor they had this week.
After the cabin announcements everyone went to get settled into their cabin and meet their counselors and others in their cabin. They made up cheers for their cabin and started to practice them. They didn’t know it yet but they were preparing to win the Spirit Stick!
Then everyone came in for lunch and we ate some chicken mixed with vegetables, salad, rice, and thick tortillas. It was delicious!
Now everyone has headed off to Bible Study or Estudio Biblia. The name of the bible study is ¿Quien es Primero? Or Who is first? Today they will focus on God is first and talk about how great our God is.
