Day 2 in Colombia

Our second day of camp was an active, emotional, blessed roller coaster.

We began yesterday with 33 kids. Today we added 3 more. 

We are on a route that contains obstacles and persecutions. However, God’s plan is marvelous.
— Pastor Fernando

The day begins with celebration and worship. Then Pastor Fernando brought the message of running the race for God's Olympics. "When you ask Jesus into your heart you become a citizen of Heaven... This earth is not our home... We are on a route that contains obstacles and persecutions. However, God's plan is marvelous. He gave us natural strengths which include talents gifts and abilities. God also sent a helper, the Holy Spirit. God is aware of our weaknesses and He will show us how to overcome obstacles."

We separated into small groups and discussed the message – digging deeper and allowing each child to ask questions, receive counseling, and pray.

Rec games followed. Each team created a cheer and they are given points for competing and for the amount of enthusiasm they show. This is a very competitive group! There was much laughter and a lot of NOISE!! 

After lunch the process was repeated.

He is faithful. 

He is present. 

He is good.
