So, as the title of this post suggests, I’m going to be listing a few of my favorite things about junior highers. This is definitely my favorite age group here at camp (though I’m a fan of the others as well) for many reasons, but here are a few:

1. They are willing to laugh at the stupid things the staff does, but they also get sarcasm and witty comments. The variety show tonight was a perfect opportunity to combine both. The campers (and I) laughed harder tonight than in many weeks.

2. They love wild and energetic speakers (as do I). Micah Labovitch is just that. He is a very passionate, very crazy speaker and the campers are already responding well to him! I’ve known Micah for 5 years now, and I know how much he desires to see our youth living out a life devoted to Jesus Christ.

3. Junior Highers are at the age where they want to know that they are loved, and even though they may have barriers and baggage, Camp Lebanon is a place to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ. You can pray that barriers would come down early and that the Gospel of the Kingdom would shine into unrepentant hearts, and encourage the Children of God who are here. And you can also pray that the staff would be able to demonstrate a glimpse of God’s love for these campers.


Have a good day and remember to bless your Creator!
