I’m finally in after a busy day today. The first full day of camp is always full of excitement, challenges, and new things. Today was no different. (Check out Student Life Experience 2010 for updates on AM Celebration, Family Groups and PM Worship or to email someone here or send someone a gift card.)
The morning got going well. Since I have so many capable adults here with us, I was able to attend my first Family Group Leadership Meeting in 11 years of camp with Student Life, which was a great joy to know the emphasis for the day. Our particular emphasis today was REpent.
At any rate, after celebration, we went to our work site and had a good time there. I was really encouraged with the heart of our students in serving joyfully. I was very proud of them, especially with local banks saying the temp was near 110.
Evening worship is always a highlight as well. Chad Norris encouraged us to live lives that are offensive rather than defensive. The Christian life isn’t meant to be lived passively, but one we live by faith at great cost. Many students were encouraged by this and the testimony from the Compassion speaker.
We ended with church group time in a local coffee house. Good times all around and, with another full day coming, I bettered sign off.
