June 22nd is fast approaching, and I wanted to give you a quick update.
I absolutely love love love the theme for our week with the kids. It's all about drawing closer to God - what it looks like to cultivate a relationship with God, and practically how they as children form habits and patterns to grow daily in their walk with Jesus.
I volunteered/was volunteered to partner with Daisy (teammate) to write the lessons and teach them during the camp, (hence the coffee and Bible). Bible reading, prayer, worship, fruits of the Spirit, being doers of the Word... each day we'll talk about a different way to grow closer to God. It's been challenging to dig into these disciplines, and encouraging to realize that all these aspects can be developed and experienced by young children.
I think back to the very first journal my dad gave me. I was probably seven years old, and I loved that purple little book. My entries weren't deep and profound - they included a verse I pulled from my daily reading, an application or question and a prayer request. Simple yes, but it instilled within me a habit of reading the God's Word daily and learning to apply it to my life.
My heart is excited to be able to encourage these kids to begin or continue these basic and life-chaning habits.
Pray that God would be preparing hearts - both our own and the kids'
Pray that God would guide my heart as I prepare the lessons
Pray that God would continue to unify our team and the Romanian team
Thank you for your prayers and support!
