And the Fun Begins...

Last night was a grand evening at Baptist Hill Camp in Mt. Vernon MO.  This was the first time in several years that I was not at the Tri-County Baptist Association Children's Camp for the entire week.  By all accounts, they had a great week.

I feel very blessed to have been invited to share the Gospel on the closing night of camp.  I don't know what happened earlier in the week, but I do know that there were several kids and one parent that committed to become followers of Jesus last night. I know that the kids got to hear testimonies from the college students and workers about what Jesus means to them and that has a far greater impact than anything that I might do or say.  I am so impressed by students that give their summers to minister to kids and serve in His Kingdom.

Next weekend is Hopedale's kids' camp.  They keep asking me back as camp pastor and I keep having as much fun as any of the kids.  The advantage for me is that while the kids are limited to few years from second to sixth grade, I've been there long enough that the kids that were there my first year are already in college!

Officially, summer doesn't begin for another ten or eleven days -- but it looks like it's going to be a great one!

'...are already in college!'

There's an 'old' joke around here I need to find.
