This week has been super crazy epic. The leadership staff have been planning and researching materials for 16 bible teachings we will do during resident camps. We have also been writing a story on the parable of the lost sheep, with an added twist... it's based on a Native American tribe called Makuala (our Indian Village camp name). Featured characters are Sakima, the Shepherd, Wanikiya, Shepherd's son and our rebellious sheep, Hastiin (he gets tired of sheep life and wants to be a llama... ok not really).
Starting tomorrow our summer staff will be joining us on the mountain and summer staff training will begin, week after that we will have indian village training!! then after that we have our first official camp :)
Prayer: Please be praying that our leadership staff continues to grow in unity. We also ask that you would pray that God would stretch and grow us as leaders. We pray for difficult kids and rough weeks because it is in those times that we experience growth. We also pray for the Spirit to lead us in how to better love one another and the kids that come up here. We recognize that camp isn't about the staff but ultimately Christ being made alive in the lives of children but we also recognize our need to be fed spiritually. Unity in community.
Thank you for your prayers!!
