Things have been crazy. Missions teams, Pastors training, visiting pastors, writing lessons, preaching,visiting more pastors, teaching homiletics and grading sermons, and to top it all off a week of Kids camp! This is what our month of May looked like this year!
Out of all that we could share about the CRAZY month of May this year we wanted to take a minute and share with everyone what we did at Mercy Christian Academy’s annual summer camp!
Cynthia, Mateo and I traveled all day Monday to get to the campground near the country’s capital of Tegucigalpa. All in all it was about 4 hours driving with +/- 2 hours stopping to eat, let mateo out of his car seat to play etc.
We spent all day Tuesday in Tegucigalpa buying all the materials we would need for the games and team building challenges that we had planned for so much!
We bought a mountain of used shipping pallets, metal pipes, plastic pipes, nails, rope, tarps, bolts, washers, paper, paint, plywood…
It felt like we bought the whole store!
Wednesday and almost all of Thursday we spent building…
here are a few pictures of the final products:
We built a fooseball stadium!
We built a giant seesaw!!
Walk the plank team challenge!
We played nine square!!
Camp wide capture the flag…
We had so much fun with the kids from Thursday to Sunday with games, hiking, swimming, but the most important time that we shared was worship and devotion time morning and night with Cynthia teaching some amazing lessons about Our relationship with God, the result of sin in the world and God’s love for his children!
We were so blessed to be able to serve the young people of Mercy Christian Academy again this year!
Nothing compares to being able to work together with God and see his purposes accomplished in the hearts and lives of others…
Ps. The kids bus caught on fire the first night of camp at about 8pm while we were in bible lesson time! We smelled a funky smell and when I along with another leader went to see where it was coming from about 1/3 of the bus was on fire! We rallied all the teachers and bucket after bucket of water we put out the fire! Electrical wires connected to the starter motor shorted out, overheated and caught fire!
