This summer was super awesome and cool to take part in. I loved getting the opportunity to grow in amazing community. Being on workstaff, I really did not get that many opportunities to connect with campers like counselors do. Honestly, for the first eight camps this summer, I started to get discouraged because I was not connecting with any of the girls in my cabin. The ninth camp of the summer was Mission Camp Macon. This camp was really refreshing because I was able to love on kids, but I also had to rely fully on God, and through that He taught me so much about His character. During Mission Camp Macon I was the Assistant Kid’s Camp Director at St. Mark’s.  At St. Mark’s, I was able to connect to a lot of the local Macon kids. I got to just hang out and play with them and not worry about any of my workstaff duties for the short period I was with them. I connected to three of the girls there: Taniyah, Destinee, and Tylar. Overall, Mission Camp Macon was a refreshing week. I felt energized and ready to finish out the rest of the summer. If all of this was not amazing enough, Taniyah was able to come to Kid’s Camp F a couple of weeks later on a campership. At Kid’s Camp F, I was able to get to know Taniyah even more. On the first full day of camp, Taniyah accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior! I will never forget the way she came up to me and told me what happened. She had the biggest smile on her face. The next day I was able to hang out with her some more. We went swimming, tubing, paddle boating, and got snacks from the snack shop. It was a blast. I am so thankful for the opportunities I have been given this summer to show God’s love to those around me and I pray that every camper this summer will remember the ways they learned to “taste and see that the Lord is good!”
