Event:: Uncommon 2013

I've been doing recreation for the middle school summer camp at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale for 9 years....

9??? 9????? WOW!!!!!

God has been so good, He really has.  Every year, about 1 1/2 months before we leave for camp I go into panic mode. Complete. Panic. I begin listing all the things I have to get done and get so overwhelmed that I shut down, shove my notepad aside, and go to sleep. Because if you know anything about me you know that when I get thrown too many things as once I just kind of look at them and walk away, not wanting to do it and not knowing where to start. And then every year I get to camp and am in awe of God and what He has done. For some reason He's chosen me to do this job and I love it. I mean absolutely love it. I get to experience Him using me in such a simple way to bring an environment to these kids where they can have fun and learn how to love Jesus more.

That's why I come back every year. I want to be used by God and He uses me at camp so show me how good He is. It's crazy.

It's been a crazy ride, honestly. The pictures I take each year bring me back to where I was in life during that time and it just brings me back. I've been through the mountain and the valleys but each year I come back to camp. Camp Geneva. Good Lord, Camp Geneva...

I pray for the team I'll have with me each year and am constantly provided with some of the best people I'll ever meet.  They're heart to serve-I love it.

Here's a couple of pictures from this year- Uncommon 2013.
