Hartland Christian Camp 2008!
Dave once again had the opportunity to speak at Hartland Christian Camp for a week this summer. He spoke each morning to about 350 high school kids and his dad spoke in the evenings. My mother-in-law and I got to go along for the ride, and as you can see, we even got to drive a bulldozer (is that what that is?). Anyway, it was very fun and just might be my next career if the real estate market continues in this decline :-)!
On the Wed. night of the camp, I had the opportunity to speak to the girls on the topics of self-esteem and purity while Dave encouraged the boys to live as godly men.
Earlier in the summer, we took our high school group to Ensenada, Mexico for a 10 day mission trip where we did VBS, a sports ministry, lots of clean up and a building project at the church we were assigned to. Some other highlights included camping in a field of tents in 115 degree weather, visiting an orphanage, sharing testimonies and some major team bonding (especially since we only had a shower every 3 days! We were so proud of our students and plan to make this an every other summer trip.
