So last week was good!

So last week was good!  I spent a week at my old stomping ground, Fairmount Wesleyan Campgrounds.  I was a counselor for 10 high school girls.  I didn't get enough of "my own space" all week, but I can say that it was worth it when I could lead that "clinger" to Christ and His love on Friday night.  I had never actually led someone through the sinner's prayer, so I was quite terrified but God gave me the words as I first prayed for her, then prayed with her.
The campers arrived Sunday afternoon, and Sunday evening after the rally we had a Luau and dinner on the rec field.  I enjoyed listening to karaoke, and had a great conversation with New Zealand missionary Josh Bowlin, and 2 youth pastosr - Jeff and Tony.  Josh really encouraged me to contact Global Partners (Wesleyan mission organization) now and share my heart with them. The thought is pretty scary, because I'm not ready to go and it's still 2 to 3 years away - but it's also really exciting!!  Monday we had tournaments on campus, and I got sunburnt watching volleyball all afternoon.  Then I relaxed in the NOW AIR-CONDITIONED cafeteria.  Monday night we went go-karting and I won my race!  We also went mini-golfing.  Tuesday afternoon we spent doing a variety of activities at IWU.  Tuesday night we went to Alexandria pool and I played Uno.  Wednesday afternoon and evening was spent at Pine Lake and it was a very hot day with lots of sun.  Because there was no rain, we were able to stay there and have our service on the lake.  I love meeting with God in nature, so it was a great time.  Thursday we had water and mud games on campus, and everything got pretty stained with dirt.  Thursday night we had a no-talent talent show.  I did a dance with my sister and 6 other girls from church, and it was alot of fun.  Also, 4 of us counselors did a little mock skit of Brittan Bush that was pretty exciting.  I missed the Friday morning festivities to work at IWU, but joined the camp Friday afternoon for swimming at Splash House.  Seriously.. like 3 out of 5 campers were already sun burnt!  Then Friday evening Ambre got saved!!
