MI Week

Well, camp started off with a bang this week. Staff training was completed and we had neighborhood camp. All the little kidos from around the lake came for two days to hang out with us and be our "test campers;" they were great.
Wed.- Saturday was our annual "Freddies Friends" week of mentally impaired campers (MI). It was probably three of the hardest days, physically and emotionally, for me. However, it was so stinkin' rewarding and encouraging. Not only was it these things but it really forces you to see how dang good we have it. Things like simply taking a shower seem so minute to us but for these people it's litterally hard work and some of them need help. I am greatful for these campers because of the perspective they bring and their joy for the little things in life. We all have our "freddies friends" moments but i'm greatful that these campers got the opportunity to come hang out with us because for most Mentally Impaired people they never get an opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and hear the gospel taught in a way that is specifically for them. It was an amazing week.
Thank you all again for all of your prayers! I need you guys.
Love and God Bless!
