Teen Camp, part 1

I'm so glad I can show you some pictures of our time at Teen Camp. I was having troubles uploading the pictures yesterday. We left for Silver State Baptist Youth Camp on Sunday evening after our annual church picnic. 

Q is on the far left, and I'm on the right next to Mrs. Fiedler, who came to be a help in the girls' cabin. Andrew, the intern, and Nick and Zach also came to help in the guys' cabin. For the first time in four summers, Q and I got to have our own cabin. We felt so much more rested and relaxed this year!

On Monday morning, the teens were divided into four teams: Safari, Expedition, Posse, and Crew. All week, they competed in basketball, softball, volleyball and other team games to earn points for their team.

This was a usual site at the basketball court during the week. Whether it was for team competition or during a break, this was a popular spot.

Everyone met in the chapel three times during the day. We sang songs, heard special music, then listened to preaching from God's Word. A few men rotated on the preaching. We were excited to have our very own pastor preach a few times during the week.

Each morning, Q led in a time of devotions for all the campers and counselors. He led in a song, then had everyone spread out in the chapel or outside to spend time with God alone. He made up sheets with questions on them so that we could go a little deeper into the reading. Our devotions this year came from I Peter.

Next time....part 2 of teen camp!
