threesixfive, week 26

allen, zach, and myself left for camp sunday after church. the students and other sponsors came down monday morning.
we brought a group of about 80, and the camp was at full capacity with 600 people. lives were changed. the worship was great; the pastor was awesome, and hundreds of kids and adults saw Jesus work in their lives. it was an incredible week. i was the "dorm mom" for our group of 20 seventh and eighth grade girls. they called me "momma a" all week. i loved getting to spend time with them, as well as the rest of our students.

here are some of the pictures from the week.

welcome to camp zephyr!

after check-in, the campers had the opportunity to go swim either at the pool, or the pond (where the blob is located). due to their insurance, sponsors are not allowed on the blob, but its one of my favorite things to watch during free time.

the late night event tuesday was a block party and firework show. some of our girls went back to the cabin, put-on their pi's, and watched the display from our "yard".

late night event was a concert by trip lee; a christian rapper. he was SO GOOD!! i wish his show had been longer than just an hour!

we had whats called extended worship, where after the worship service, students are directed outside to area where they can participate in other worship experiences. theres are seven different  stations offering activities such as foot washing, journaling, prayer, drawing, etc.

we got home from camp friday afternoon, and this represents what i did the rest of the day, followed by an early bedtime.

we got the kids back from mimi, and colbys hair had grown another couple of inches while he was there. ok, not really, but he was pretty shaggy, so allen trimmed his hair so he won't melt at camp this week!

tomorrow we leave to go back down to zephyr. alleys the camp pastor this week--a new experience for him, so we're super excited. the kids are going with us, too.
pray for safe travels and a fun week!!
