Ignite 2 - Bracelets that Bind us Together
The title to this week's camp blog really is inspired by the thousands of yards (quite literally) of embroidery thread that our campers have gone through this week. Sometimes I think we likely keep the thread business going with how much we (and every camp) must go through in two months.
The title doesn't just have to do with the bracelets that are made but something Dan talked about last night at campfire. He talked about our circles of friends who who we need to surround ourselves as we go home from camp. How we need to have friends around us that are holding us, centered in Jesus - helping us stand firm in the faith. We also talked about sin and the how God forgives us and how we can say yes to following Him.
There was ice cream/brownie socials, night games, Pro Skills, Jug 'n' Jog, and more amazing superhero costumes than you can shake a stick at. It was SO much fun!
Here are some of the testimonies from Campfire last night:
- I don't have to be perfect for God to love me.
- We just need to show Jesus' love to the world and not let anything stop you.
- God will always love me no matter what.
- I want to shine my life more than I have been doing.
- There's always more to learn about God.
- God loves everyone, even when they make mistakes. I'm glad I got to come here and learn.
- I've decided I'm following Jesus for the rest of my life.
