First day of Children's camp and the temperature is rising. The local kids were so excited we had to leave home early to go to the center, many kids had come early and were outside the gate wanting camp to start. The kids were so excited. Plans had been made for a maximum of 120 kids but by the end of the day there were 130. We had a few children who were small and cried when mommy or daddy left. We later discovered there were scared of the clown and puppets. The clown and puppets delivered the spiritual message through song and skits to begin the day. It was such a blessing to work with this ministry from a church in Bethlehem who came with the program. We were their helpers. Two of our team helped with the organized games while the other two helped with crafts. Pass the water balloon is a fun game on a 100 degree day. The rest of the week is supposed to get hotter. Please pray that the songs and message each day take root in the hearts of these children, and that the children would sing the songs and share the message with Mommy and Daddy each day. Keep up the praying.
