Summer Camp Is Here

Katie and I leave for Big Bear Lake, California this Sunday afternoon for our junior high summer camp. Here's how you can pray for us:

-Safety. For the long road trip into the California mountains, to the games and activities we'll be doing at camp, please pray that everyone remains safe and healthy.

-Endurance. I'll be leading all week as camp director, as well as play drums for the worship band, plus have a cabin of new 7th grade guys (and I'm still the junior high director for Red Mountain). It's a lot of different hats to wear. Pray for patience, endurance, mental clarity, and health.

-Spiritual Growth. The entire reason we spend so much time, energy, and resources for camp is for spiritual renewal and growth. A "win" for this camp would be: 1. Every student would take at least one step closer in their relationship with Jesus, no matter where they're at spiritually; and 2. Every student would build a stronger relational connection with a loving adult and the students in their church community.

-Marriage. Even in the fun and craziness that is camp, I want to be intentional about spending time with my wife this week and showing her just how much I love her (especially since her birthday is the first day of camp!).

The blogging will probably be infrequent next week! I'll post an update about camp upon our return.
