Our second day of camp was an active, emotional, blessed roller coaster.
We began yesterday with 33 kids. Today we added 3 more.
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.
