You are probably thinking what? Ok another highlight of my summer was the privilege I had to speak at Trinity Youth Camp this summer. This was my first time getting to speak in a camp atmosphere like that and I loved it. It was probably the most fun I have ever had speaking. The first week I was able to preach on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights. The kids there were awesome. It seemed like every kid there was listening and maybe even getting the message.
I really enjoyed getting to know some of the kids while I was down there in the evenings. It was interesting asking them what their favorite thing about camp was. It seemed like everyone had something different. It was really cool when a kid would come up to me and say thanks for the message, I really needed that. I’m amazed how God can use someone as simple as me, and speak to kids hearts.
The second week I got to preach on Tuesday and Thursday nights. On Thursday night, I was able to participate in the segment of camp called “Are You Faster Than Your Counselor?” Each night they had a guy and girl counselor come up and do a Minute to Win It challenge, and the kids from the different cabins competed to see if they could beat them. The game I got to do was unrolling a complete roll of toilet paper. I think I could have won if I wouldn’t have knocked the toilet paper down to start, but those seconds lost were just enough for one of the boys from the blue team to win!
Even though I didn’t win, I still had a great time both weeks. I personally want to thank the camp director, Daniel Warren for letting me come, and I hope that it is something I get the chance to do again in the future. Next time I will be prepared to unroll faster!
