Another week; another camp.

Tomorrow begins a week of kids' camp in the Pulaski Association. It is the sixth camp I've participated in this summer and the last one on my schedule.

It has been many years since I've been to the Pulaski camp and the last time I was only there for a one night event. This year I will be serving as camp pastor.
It is nice to get to be serving in the Pulaski Association. I've been going to their winter evangelism conference for many years but have only been asked to serve in a couple of revivals or other events. It may be that I've finally aged into the stereotypical age of a traditional evangelist. I still don't feel like a typical Southern Baptist evangelist (that's not meant to be a good or bad thing, it is just the way it is), but I'm retired now and have the grey hair to fit the normal perception.

Overall, it has been a pretty decent summer of ministry. I don't know it that will continue for the next few summers or not; I still think there are probably younger, better qualified people to serve as children's camp pastors.

I expect it to be a typically hot and humid week for mid-Missouri in mid July.

When it is summertime hot, I feel like I should be on a sunny beach.
When it is cold out, I feel like I should be on a sunny beach.
Yeah, I'm ready for a getaway.

I'll get a Chicago trip in a couple of weeks. It's not exactly a beach getaway (although there is a nice beach along the Lake), but it will be nice to see the kids and go to the UFC Chicago fights with Aaron.

Have a great week.
Enjoy the summer.
