Brother Went to Camp
I know summer's officially over, but I'm still trying to catch up from summer on here....
This year, our son was old enough to go to church camp. Quite a big deal in our house - he'd never been away from us this long before except with family. He had a blast!! He went with our church's 3rd-5th graders to a state-wide camp, and our church had the biggest group go. He loved it - archery, fishing, b-b guns, sports, swimming his guts out - all the things a little boy loves to do over the summer. Plus, each night they had great worship and Bible study time. He was in a family group with several of his friends from Sunday School, and Mr. George was their leader. (And we love Mr. George!!) He did go down during decision time the last night, and talked with a counselor about what it means to ask Jesus into his heart, but did not make a decision. I asked him about it later, and he said he just wasn't ready yet. I was pleased that he was listening to the Lord speaking to his heart. And boy oh boy were we glad to have him home on Friday!
