I arrived in Cape Town on Thursday, met my awesome team who came to pick me up at the airport, placed my luggage in my room, ate lunch, and began straightaway with camp training.
As you can imagine, I was quite foggy and had trouble lifting my eye lids but God provided the concentration needed in order to absorb this pertinent information.
I was even able to stay up late enough to play a couple rounds of Outburst with my new family but as soon as my head touched my pillow I was gone.
Morning came incredibly too soon and promised more training before the campers arrived later that afternoon. Yes; day 2, first camp, 120 5th-7th graders.
It was long day after long day but God provided the strength even in my jet-lagged exhaustion.
God has blessed right from the start.
I was worried about how the team would get along and, honestly, when I saw them in that airport all I could think was, They are so young!
Awkwardness set in but it didn’t last for long.
They were all kind, helpful, funny from the very beginning and I felt more comfortable around them after just 10 minutes than I had felt in a long time.
God wasted no time correcting my ridiculous fears.
Today is just a quick update to get you all up-to-speed for my post on Thursday. (I’m really excited to share what God has been teaching me.) Lord willing, Thursdays will be my new posting days.
As always, you may gleam some prayer requests from my blog posts but I will always post specific prayer requests and praises to my twitter (which is linked to my prayer page under “Fuel”;).
Thank you for joining me on this crazy adventure and be sure to come back on Thursday for a lesson on the work of the Holy Spirit.
