This morning concluded the week of Family Camp we've been experiencing the past days. Closing out with a few powerful testimonies of the Lord's working in the hearts of families -- and fellowship over a delicious meal -- it was time to say goodbyes.
With many answers to prayer over the course of the week, we're grateful for the opportunity to get to know the families in attendence -- and enjoy some family fun and recreation ourselves. It was a full few days.
Each morning began with breakfast and family devotions. Followed by chapel, which turned out to be an encouraging time of sharing and learning from eachother. Father/Son and Mother/Daughter sessions completed the morning, and then left the afternoons for family time taking in the camp's vast variety of activities. Each day concluded with a keynote session of special music and teaching. Oh yes, and late night snacks. [smile]
Our theme for the week was entitled, "Equiping Families for Ministry".
