GO TELL Camp - Week 1

Hello again everyone! I am still in Toccoa, and this morning we completed our first week of camp. What an amazing time. So many salvations, rededications and kids who surrendered to the Ministry.... It's got me way pumped for next week.

So... it's going to be hard to sum up a whole week worth of awesomeness in a blog that won't bore you to death as you continue to scroll down and down, searching for the end of the unbelievably long blurb... therefore I have decided to just touch on the highlights.

I was given my responsibilities last Sunday night, and this week I ran the Four Square court during rec. Not surprisingly, it was pretty quiet. The quietness ended up being great when a couple of girls from Laurel, MS stopped to play on Tuesday and ended up staying and just chatting with me for almost 4 hours. They came back and we talked more on Wednesday and that night I went to their church share group time. I shared my testimony with them and I really felt like God moved in a big way in the hearts of some of those kids. It was really, really amazing.

I was also assigned to be a "Camera Assistant," which means that I've been filming the worship services, which has been SO MUCH FUN. It's so cool to set up shots and see how you can do it differently to get different effects... I can't really explain it, but it's GREATNESS, take my word for it.

I performed in several skits this week and that was a lot of fun. On Monday night, I played Miss Teen South Carolina on a "Jimmy Kimmel Live"-type improv skit. That was a hoot and a half. :-D

I went into town today and had cell service, so I got to talk to my mom today, which was nice. :-)

I guess that's about it. All of the interns are still getting along well, so thank you for your prayers! I think that we have to change rooms this weekend because we've got so many campers coming in next week, which means sleeping 5 girls to a room instead of the 3 we're currently enjoying. So please keep praying!

I think that wraps it up... please keep praying for me and the other interns as often as God brings us to your hearts. Thanks y'all! Love you! Have a great week! I'll try to update again next weekend! Soli deo Gloria!!!
