First week of Camp accomplished!!!

Well.... we officially completed our first week of camp!!!! I am drained......

Here are a few highlights from this week....

1) First day of camp was both exciting and exhausting... It is great to be in the heart of camp!

2) The jingle and chants have started... I wake up everyday with the song in my head....
                                      "I said a BOOM, CHICKA BOOM"

3) We are selling mission bracelets for an orphanage in China.. We have raised approximately 350.00

4) Kids are dedicating their hearts to Christ!!!!!

5) We were all soaked by the end of today as we had to work in the pouring rain..... As I entered the chapel, the counselors were dancing around with the campers.. They were making the best out of a situation that could have easily been complained about.  The staff at Rivercrest is incredible... Its amazing how God orchestrates such wonderful plans for everyone lives that are involved!!!

6)I had a couple of disposable cameras in the snack shack that we were selling.. A kid came up today and I asked how I could help him? He then replied, "I'll take a "fake camera" please" bahahahahaha....

Our family will spend tonight and saturday relaxing and resting as we prepare for another week....

I leave you with this encouragement

Don't QuitAuthor believed to be Rev Wade Watts

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road your trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and its turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When they might have won, had they stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victors cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when your hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit!
