The reason we got to take this amazing trip, was so my husband could preach at a Junior High Camp in West Virginia. It just so happened that two of our kids were the ages to be campers that week. And it just so happened that my son was praying for a chance to go to summer camp! He wasn’t old enough to go to the camp Lauren went to last year, so I just told him to pray about it – with very little faith that God would answer. After all, a trip to camp isn’t a “need”, so my faith was weak. Weak, but not non-existent. It’s amazing how God blesses even my microscopic faith! God answered and gave Mitchell the chance he’d been longing for.
I was busy caring for our three younger kids most of the week, so I didn’t get many photos of the campers. They had a great time, though. Mitchell was on the orange team, while Lauren was blue. They memorized dozens of verses, swam, played games and ate the wonderful food prepared by the ladies of Faith Way Baptist Church. Of course, the preaching was amazing. 🙂 Each night, there was a bonfire outside which was also a testimony time. If a camper wanted to share what God was doing in their lives through camp, they were free to do that. There were several sweet testimonies given during the week.
