I’m Off To Camp. Let the Fun Begin.

I’m off to be a camp counselor. Kids beware.

I may be away from blogging for quite some time.  A month? All depending.

When I return I’ll be full of new insights, wisdom and epiphanies.  Or not.

Any tips on being a camp counselor would be appreciated!

    Awesome!!!! You’ll have a blast!!! (I always do!!)

    Tips…
    Patience, Prayer, and genuine Love and interest in your campers.

    “The ministry is people (kids). But, people don’t care what you know, until they know how much you care.”

    “Jesus said, let the little children come unto me.”

    Be willing to step out of your box; reach out to those on the fringe; be enthusiastic; listen; see; smile.

    Oh!!! I’m really excited for you, and this ministry opportunity you’ve been given!!! I’ll be praying for you!

    Thanks Amanda! I appreciate the prayers.

    Just finished the first week of camp this morning. It was a lot of work but rewarding. I had a a lot of opportunities to really pour into the kids, it was an experience they will remember the rest of their lives, and I will too!

    Amanda, you mentioned “patience” above, that one is very true! I had 9 boys in my cabin (10-11 year old range) and what got to me most was the immaturity. They’re not adults!

    More updates later….
