Camp 2012

9 Jul

We just came back from camp, and it was very crazy!! Two days before we left for camp, a major storm hit West Virginia. The majority of the state was without electricity, including the camp we were going to. That meant limited power from a generator. We had no air conditioning, limited lights, no hair dryers, straighteners, or curling irons. Needless to say, we looked lovely all drenched in sweat with our hair undone!!
All that said, I wouldn’t have traded the experience for all the money in the world! The time we got to spend with our teens was wonderful. The preaching really touched our hearts, and we made a lot of great decisions! They ranged from salvation for one boy to going to Bible college, witnessing more, and being all we can be for the Lord for others! Praise the Lord for such a wonderful camp where the Lord’s power can still be felt in this modern age.

Personal Devotion Binder

22 Jun

One of the reasons I started this blog was to keep track of ideas for the different ministries of our church. I am VERY forgetful!
This week in SS, we are starting to make personal devotion binders. This is something I recently made for myself to help me be more organized in my walk with the Lord. I am hoping that it will help my jr. high girls, as well.
It’s simple! All you need is a binder, a hole punch, paper, a computer and a printer. I designed 4 sections -prayer list, answered prayer, Bible reading, and a section for special passages I’d like to remember. It took all of 20 minutes to make.
Shortly after making mine, I heard Bro. Corle mention that God answers prayers all the time, but we are so unorganized in our prayer life that we don’t know it. He was right! Within the first 2 weeks I had documented 6 answered prayers I probably wouldn’t have noticed if I hadn’t been writing everything down. What a wonderful God we serve!
