Op Camp Junior High

I just got back from Op Camp - Junior High. WOW. It was a great experience.
The first few days were a little rough with the rain & power outage but God's presence was there the whole time and lives were changed for Him. I really loved this camp & really felt like I grew a lot personally in my Walk with Him too. He has been showing me this summer how much better life is with Him - I am starting to appreciate and know His love on a deeper level and that causes me to see people and love people in a different way. I loved being a mentor this time - I had the best cabin and I really loved hearing their stories and knowing how to love and encourage and pray for them. What really blew me away is when one of my counselors tearfully told her story then proceeded to tell the cabin that she knows why she went through such hard stuff as a kid {to help/encourage/love on the girls that are going through the same thing!}. SERIOUSLY? For a 15 year old to really get that her pain was worth it for reaching others for God, that is amazing! Op Camp is a great community of believers and a true family. I am honored to be a part of it!
