God Wins the Battle! That is our Word Up for today. Today’s lesson is focusing on the story of King David and Goliath. This morning, Bible Teacher Ethan began telling the story to the campers illustrating it with army men and a large pink teddy bear! It was definitely a unique way to tell the story but when you are at camp, you use what you have at hand. The campers were able to understand the details of the story and soon realized that no matter what foes we face with God on our side, the battle is won. It was God who gave David courage and the ability to take down the giant Goliath.
Our theme verse for today comes from Psalm 47:1-2 which says:
“Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. For the LORD Most High is awesome, the great King over all the earth.”
Besides learning about how God wins our battles the campers have had their first full day of elective classes. Campers have enjoyed participating in Archery, Boating and Canoeing, Ceramics, Horseback riding, Swim Games, Crazy Concoctions, and more! As the leaders have walked around camp, lots of smiles are seen, excitement is heard, and everyone is having a wonderful time! In fact, the day began early with a fun game of Ga-Ga ball before breakfast! The campers are taking advantage of all the activities at camp and are enjoying every minute; strengthening old friendships, while building new ones.
Our prayer today for the campers is for the Lord God to meet with each one of them in just the way they need it. So that they can know that no matter what they are doing, He is with them; able to give them strength and wisdom to fight every battle. With Jesus as their Savior there is no battle that they cannot overcome. With God on our side we can always Clap Our Hands and Stomp Our Feet no matter what.
Day two of Adventure Camp 2019 has ended with a night swim time at the pool and a wagon ride! Even a little rain shower did not dampen the joy of being at camp. Many campers are heading to their sleeping bags with heavy eyelids and sleepy smiles. Today’s activities will give them a good night of sleep, and sweet dreams for a great day of camp tomorrow.
