I am excited and thankful to have an opportunity to be a Cabin Leader at Gardom Lake Bible Camp this summer. I've done it once before back in high-school at the camp I grew up going to as a kid. I've always wanted to do it again. It was a memorable and worthwhile experience the likes of which I am always craving more of.
However, I ended up being one of the blessed few young people who get themselves into a stable career right after high-school and I never again found myself with a summer free to spend in that way. So here I am over a decade later with a great reason to count my current work layoff as a blessing. I'm getting to do some of the things a person never makes time for in the natural flow of things. I'm certain God has given me this disruption with a purpose in mind and I look forward to watching it play out.
I'll be at Gardom Lake for two weeks, July 6-19. Please pray with me that God would be present in me and moving through me. May the Holy Spirit give me the words and the insights to make a difference in the lives of the kids and the other staff. May I be an example of the character of God lived out in the simple practical ways which I know can change people's lives.
