Here is a quick video on what they will be doing, and how you can donate! (As of this moment, they are halfway to their goal!)
The second phase camp (Army of God) was amazing. Almost all of our kids from last year's Royalty camp were able to come back this year, and it is truly crazy how much they have grown with the Lord this past year. They were bold and fierce as they prepared this year's dances, and they fully embraced the teachings we had about spiritual warfare and how to clothe yourself in God's armor. Their outreach was to three different villages in the 5th section in two days. Those were very tiring days, but they brought so much fruit!

In this year's Royalty camp we had brand all brand new kiddos! I was able to choreograph and teach a dance for this camp, and I cannot tell you how proud I am of the group of girls I taught. We started off rough, (Teaching through and interpreter was slightly difficult, but we made it work, and their attitudes were not the best at first) but by the end I could see so much joy on their faces. This was actually true for so many of the kids that came to the camp. It was almost like we had a group of kids enter our base one Sunday, and 10 days later a brand new group of kids left. There was one boy named Jonas that was so changed on the inside, that by the end of the camp you could see physical changes in his face. It was crazy!
Some close friends (and fellow staff members) got married this past weekend! Isaac was chosen to be the ring bearer and he did a pretty good job! (Even though he was helping the flower girls put the flowers back IN the baskets, but hey, what can I say, I've taught him well! ;P Anyway. the ceremony and reception were lovely, and we are so happy that they are finally married!
What's coming up?
- Pray for this pregnancy. It has been a difficult summer physically and emotionally, with sore muscles and some anxiety attacks. Though through all of this my relationship with the Lord has gotten stronger and I have had many instances of having to blindly trust that he has everything planned out for the best
- Jay is preparing to mount our solar panels! We have just a few more things to purchase, but he hope to have them up by this weekend. Pray for safety as he and our friend Kenny are on the roof!
- Safe travels next month! It is going to be interesting traveling separately, pray that everything goes smoothly
- Pray that this upcoming National Leadership conference is productive and that Jay learns a lot!
