May 2014 Update 1

Hey all!!  Stacey and I got a very good night’s sleep.  I think Stacey slept for almost 12 hours.  We spent the morning hanging around the guesthouse until we headed into town to prep for camp.  The afternoon was busy getting all our last minute supplies.  Stacey was able to meet up with the boy she sponsors for lunch, Umar, which was a treat.  After finishing shopping we loaded bins and staff up in the bus and headed out to the Discovery Centre where we will have camp.  The afternoon was spent learning games and getting to know the staff.  We are all organized and ready for the kids to come in the morning.

The kids are coming from 3 different schools for camp.  2 have been a part of camp before, Nuvila and HELP.  The third is God’s Will School and they have never experienced anything like this before.  it should be cool to see how they respond.  They are also not tied to an american NGO, so I’m not even sure how much exposure they’ve had to white people.
We are excited to have these kids come and learn about the love that Jesus has for them and the abundant life He has to offer.  Please pray for their hearts to be open.  We are also having a bit of a different look to our staff this time.  I am excited and a little nervous.  God has been speaking to me about letting them lead more, so I have asked them to teach the Gospel presentation that I have done every camp.  Pray that the Word is clear and that God’s heart would be taught well.  Thank you!!
