Family Camp 2014

Hmmm…looks like I only have a few pictures from camp. I tried to take it easy, but there was so much to do. I taught the 2-6 year-olds (with a lot of help from my trusty sidekick, Haley), helped in the kitchen when I felt up to the task and tried to keep an eye on Lydia. She’s a very busy little girl who was often upset that she couldn’t just go where she wanted whenever she wanted.

Overall, camp was very good. The first morning for devotions Sister Galaviz used Nathan for her object lesson. He was filling out an enlistment form. I love the way they look so happy!

This group of boys could be found together at any given time during camp.

The first real night of services Brother Smith preached about salvation. The altar filled up when he gave the opportunity, but most of the kids praying are already saved. They were rejoicing in what God had done for them. It was a sweet place to be.

Jon felt like he needed to talk to Zeke and he said the tears just poured down Zeke’s face as they talked about salvation. Just typing all this makes me cry again. What a wonderful thing to know that all of my children, who are old enough to understand, are saved and want to serve God.

Caitlin Letcher led us in worship this year. It was her first time and she did an amazing job! She really drew us into worship. This was a practice session…I love to watch all these guys play together.

When Lydia did finally get loose she tried to do anything she thought she could get away with…this time it was riding the tent chains like a horse. Hmmm…everything seems to be horse to her.

And here is the queen of camp…

None of us would know what to do without Janis at camp! I’m so glad she and Hannah were able to come to Aurora and ride with us. We had a great time!!

That’s about the extend of the pictures I have. The last day of camp was the 4th of July. We had classes in the morning then spent the rest of the day playing games and eating. DJ and Caitlin had created several stations for anyone who wanted to participate. The pregnant ladies found a spot in the semi-shade and watched the water balloon pinata station. It was great fun!

And I guess that concludes my Family Camp report.
