Another week of Super Kids and even though it’s the third one, I’m still excited for the campers to be here. And they’re excited too!  It’s crazy to think about how these campers are already getting engaged in camp life even though it’s been only a half day. It hadn’t been two hours after camp had started before campers were down on the docks fishing. Luckily, we have a fishing grandpa (Marv) here this week to give us some help on the fishing front.


The campers didn’t waste any time in regards to swimming either. We had 130 campers come to take the swim test today, and after that, we had a large group of boys and girls come swimming after dinner. And it’s only the first day!

The staff variety show took place tonight as well, and I was impressed again at the level of quality of this show. It’s good to see how the staff are really making sure that the campers are having fun on this first day. These two are our Ooga Booga Warriors – Kyle and Andy.

Our speaker this week is Steve Hanson, who is accompanied by his wife, Laura. They have worked at camp for years and I’m so glad to see them back, if only for a week. Having worked in Lithuania for a year, they are now back on a summer furlough before heading back to Eastern Europe. I’m glad they chose to spend some time here at Camp Lebanon.

One of the best ways you can be in prayer for Camp’s ministry this week is to pray that God would take out the hearts of stone and replace them with hearts of flesh – that those here who are enslaved to sin even as children would find the freeing power of Jesus’ blood, and make Him Lord of their lives. Also be in prayer that the staff would be fresh, effective witnesses for the gospel of the Kingdom.

Have a great day, and remember to rejoice in the Lord always!
