What a beautiful and eventful day it was at camp! The sun was shining and the wind was nice. We enjoyed some hot and fresh French Toast with Papa Bear’s eggs for breakfast. In Bible Study we learned what sin is (Self Indulgent Nature).
At Jump Start Karl taught us about the 4:29 principle. This comes from Ephesians 4:29 “Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.”
COOOOOOOMMMMPETITION! From Bear Comp. yesterday the Honeys & Polars were ahead but the Grizzlys and Sugars could come out on top tomorrow. All tribes played their hearts out and exuded tribe spirit.
In Arts and Crafts the girls made beads out of scrapbooking paper and glue. In Drama the campers learned how to read body language.
For Activity rotation T-T, Telluride Trail, and St. Elmo worked on their tans and had a blast at the Team Swing! Boy’s Camp had swim time at the pool and the girls floated and canoed in the river.
At dinner we had some of Alma’s Spaghetti with meat sauce, corn, and breadsticks! After dinner we made it just in time to catch our flight on Deer Creek Airlines headed for Hawaii. It was smooth flying until we got caught in a terrible tropical storm and had to crash land on an uncharted island! The native people of the island helped us survive by teaching us to make a fire, spear fish, and scavenge for food. To celebrate our newly aquired survival skills the natives threw us an Island Pool Party complete with fruit kabobs and breezy music.
At Team Meeting, Papa Bear delved deeper into the meaning of sin. He emphasized the word “indulgence”. When we sin, we indulge ourselves in wrong decisions. It’s like we stuck our hands in black paint and every time we sinned or encouraged a friend to sin, the black paint spread. We indulged our hands in that black paint. But there is hope. There is one person that can clean us of that black paint – of our sins. We will find out who that is and how he does that tomorrow.
