Purple Praisers!!



As a special addition this week, Morganne & ChellBell will tell us all about their time at Camp!! Take it away girls!!

Morganne: When we first saw the campsite and the cabins, it was real cool. Especially when we saw the Blob, but we couldn't do it because it is only for fifth graders.
ChellBell: Is it true that if you step on a catfish fin, it can cut your foot open? Cause there were catfish in the lake. Now say Catfish fin fast...it's fun.
M: Mud Dodge Ball was my favorite thing to do at camp because we got to wear our swimsuits and get really muddy.
CB: Especially Aaron, one of the counselors, he had mud all over him...on his face, his hair, his clothes...gross!!
CB: Definitely jumping off the diving board was my favorite.
M: The food was delicious! We had fajitas, omelets, hamburgers, candy bars, water. They didn't let us have soda though.
CB: I liked watching people get slimed...especially April Showers and I also liked the crackers and seaweed the counselors had to eat. (me- from what I can gather, this was during the skits at worship time)
CB: We did not like washing off the mud though- it was so cold!!
M: We sang & danced at praise and worship time. And we heard stories from the Bible- like little Joey (Joseph) & Elijiah & Elisha.
CB: The Purple Praisers was the name of our team- we almost won the camp trophy cause April Showers kept giving us points!
M: Yeah, but at the end of camp she gave the trophy to a boys team...I don't get it??
M: I really think we should go back to camp next year!
CB: Me too!!
M: I had a great time at camp- I met lots of new friends!
CB: The best thing that happened at camp- when we got to go t the concessions stand- I got 4 sweet tarts! They were so sour, I couldn't say my "ssss" for a long time ... tour... tour... tour...

...and they are off to go play.....

These girls had a FANTASTIC time at camp. When I picked them up yesterday, it was chatter, chatter, chatter NON-STOP all the way home. I heard about the mud dodge ball, lamp chops for dinner (huh??), sleeping in bunk beds, what girls were really nice, how they almost won the camp trophy.
One special thing that happened.....Morganne told me on the way home that God had spoken to her...he told her to dance whenever she felt like it and don't worry about what other people think! Wow! What a big concept for such a little girl. What made it even mo re cool was when Jack asked her, "You mean you actually heard God's voice?" Her reply was, "You hear him speak to you in your heart Jack. He spoke to me there and I heard him!" WOW!!
I am thrilled that the girls had the opportunity to go to camp together! Looks like they survivied and can't wait to go back next year!!
