A couple of weeks ago Jess and I were counselors at camp here. It’s only 15 minutes away from Scottsville, which was nice; from Lubbock, most Christian camps with scenery are at least 5 hours away.

We had a really great time and we got to know our kids and we got to know members from 4 other congregations from the area that were joining us at camp. I taught the 10-year-old boys in the mornings and Jessica taught the girls. Of course, the girls were more talkative than the boys and I seemed to only be able to hold their attention for about 10 minutes, but I think the lessons sank in (eventually).

We had 10 baptisms during camp and a lot of great lessons. I really think the week had a big impact on some of the kids’ lives, and I was glad to be there.
