What a beautiful start to a new day! Our early morning exercises were completed as the sun made its way into the sky. There was much planned for the day including a scavenger hunt around camp and many other surprises! Our speaker, Mr. Nate, continued his thoughts on the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5, and spent some time talking about ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy’. We thought a lot about what mercy is and how we have received mercy from the Lord, even though we didn’t deserve it. As believers, we have received mercy and should now demonstrate that mercy to others. 

It is great to see groups of campers and counselors meeting at different points around camp to talk about the lessons and to just ask questions. Some very interesting discussions come from some of these informal times! But there is still plenty of time for activities and fun. The horses are always a great favorite, but the warm weather often takes people to the pool or lake as well! The craft cabin is a great place to cool down, make new friends and work on your projects at the same time!
There was a lot of time for activity until the rain came again and stopped the outdoor fun. We quickly moved inside and the fun and the rain continued!  Our evening consisted our a steady downpour outside but great fellowship and great teaching inside about the blessings that come to the pure of heart, who are promised they will see God. What a promise! We look forward to another great day of fun and ministry!
