It has been a great two weeks here at Camp Joy! The Lord has been working mightily. At staff meetings we (the staff) receive feedback on the hearts of the people who come to the camp. It was great to hear how God used Camp Joy in their hearts. This week we start teen camp number one.
It has been fun working in the kitchen. I learned how to do a lot of things. All the kitchen girls are really nice. It is nice to see girls from all different backgrounds coming to serve the Lord together. I’ve been reading Romans in my devotionals and going verse by verse. I learned a lot this way. This has been helpful on the tone of my speech, because I know I have trouble in that area.
Please pray for me, because I can’t do this without God.

Thank you so much for your support! Working here at Camp Joy has been a lot of fun, but also a lot of hard work. In housekeeping, we keep everything neat and clean, we run the shops, and I even fold some laundry! I was well prepared for that.
We have gone through two weeks already; The Armed Forces Baptist Missions and The Family Camp. This coming week is the first Teen Camp, so please pray that it all goes well.
As the summer continues, there are many other things to pray for. First, pray that the Lord would work and continue to work in my heart as well as in the other staff and campers. Also strength, lots of strength!
Thank you so much again.

Wow! It seems like forever ago since I left for camp! These have been two very exciting and busy weeks. The first week was a military mission conference for two different groups. This last week was family camp and I enjoyed meeting all the families!
I also run the craft shop in the afternoons so that was always very exciting. My job is photography and video! Miss Natalie is an awesome teacher and we have fun working together! I basically run around with the cameras and take whatever I need, then at the end of the week we show campers the week-in-review. So far I’ve helped make two videos and I think I’m getting the hang of it.
The preaching has been amazing! Pastor Moore (the new camp director) preached on elite love. It reminded me that God worked everything out for me to serve at Camp Joy this summer and that my goal should be to bring honor and glory to Him by serving and helping in any way possible, but with love. One of the things Mrs. Moore mentioned was getting out of our circle of people, like us going to different people that are different and showing them love.
I have made so many new friends here. Thanks for praying for me!
