About a week ago, Sarah and I went to Camp Kid's Quest with our Church! There were about 27 counselors and 120 kids at camp. A couple of days before camp, the Kids Quest staff held a meeting for the counselors that were going. We learned each counselor was in charge of around 4 to 6 kids. I was picked to have a special group of boys for the week; whose names are Kevin, JJ, Javier, and Diego. I was introduced to Tim Gardiner, the one who invited these boys from his public school. It was truly a God thing that they were able to come. Tim told me that these boys had a rough childhood and they didn't attend church on a regular basis. He told me about their different personalities. I was getting more and more excited to meet these boys and share the love of Christ with them! We prayed that the Lord would rock their worlds!

The theme of the week was on how God has had a plan from the very beginning. The first night we talked about the magnificent garden and how sin entered the world. After every club, we had small group time. We each led our groups in a discussion about the club's message, how the kids were doing and what they thought. My group talked about the relationship Adam and Eve had with God and that sin broke that relationship. I was blown away by how fast these boys absorbed and understood the message. The following messages were about Abraham and Isaac, the Israelites being saved from slavery, and the lost tribes. Each message emphasized that God keeps His promises and that He was the only way the world could be saved. I could see that the Lord was working on the hearts of my boys by their answers to the small group discussion questions, especially Javier.
