Life lately

Life lately has been insane. God has been teaching me so much through people and on my own. For those of you who know me I have been the intern for Magnolia Ave. middle school department for almost a year. It's been really great. I love it, and last week I took them to camp all on my own (besides the other two counselors) for the first time. Lucas is out of town on missions so I was the head-honcho for this little excursion into the San Bernardino Mountains. On the first day everything was peachy, but second day in things got a little rocky. I was totally shocked and surprised at the fact that two girls who came with us and seemed to be having a good time decided that they wanted to go home over a major misunderstanding. A very seriously huge misunderstanding. I was really bummed because one of them was of the Muslim faith and was totally enjoying her stay at our camp. So I totally am bummed that she went home early, but God has his hand in it somewhere. I know that God has a plan, but I was hoping that she would be moved toward the saving grace of the Gospel but instead it seems that only some seeds were planted, although she did say some things that were encouraging, such as "I have really opened my eyes towards things, and I am interested in studying the Christian faith." so that was great, but still discouraging that she went home.
But over all camp was good, and I walked away with some great experiences that I learned from and will be able to really apply in my life and future ministry.
