English Camp today

English Camp Activities

Here are some pictures to show what the kids are doing in English camp.
They learn a new game each day.  Today was kickball, which was quite the adventure
for this group of kids who has never played anything similar to baseball.
 
Ok, we are in the outfield...now what?
 
 
First one up... kicking a ball is an easy enough concept for a
"futbol" focused culture.
 
 
 
"Coach Heidi" - she did such a great job! She is one of our interns
focusing solely on English Camp this summer.
 
Lined up to kick the ball
What a kick!  No special effects here. He was really angled that much.
I don't know how he managed to stay standing!

Jackson helping a child practice the phrase, "God loves you and has a wonderful plan
for your life." This is so precious!

So there you have it.  A snapshot into day 2 of English Camp.  Each child gets to play the game, go to Evangelism Class, sit through an English lesson, eat lunch, drink juice...what more could they want in a camp for a month?  We are blessed by the interns, translators, and children who are here for this.  You may be wondering if this "camp" means the children stay on campus all month.  The answer is no.  They walk or get a ride here each morning by 8 AM.  They leave around 2 PM to return home.  Yesterday we had 73 kids at camp. Today we registered nearly 40 more for a total of 110 kids.  These 110 kids will be able to hear the gospel, be reminded that God has a purpose for their life, and enjoy a hot meal each weekday for the entire month of July.  I look forward to continuing to post pictures and stories of how God uses this time to bless these families!
