We just finished a wonderful week at Gull Lake Ministries family camp. This is the third time we've been here, and every time I am amazed by this ministry.
My dad had the privilege of teaching and being the missions rep for the camp, and I am so proud of him! I got to be a part of the adult program this year, and be in his teachings, which I really enjoyed. (Maybe I'm just biased...but really, I love his Bible teaching!)
I don't want to forget all of these precious times in the States. It's exhausting, yes, but also so very memorable. I'm thankful for the memories I get to make with my family.
|With my buddy Haley!! She is so so sweet, and I'm thankful I got to hang out with her at GL! Haley- you're awesome!|
|The last night of camp Caleb led the counselors in a worship song as a choir. It was amazing. I've never seen a group of people praising God as joyously as them! I loved getting a taste of what heaven will be like some day. :)|
This was not just a nice week at camp. We also had to say goodbye to Caleb. *Not-so-happy-face* He's working at Gull Lake all summer, and after that is headed to Moody Bible Institute this fall. Thankfully, we get to see him in October, but still, this is the send off. This is the closing of the "four-of-us" family chapter. Officially. :(
It was hard to say goodbye. But I know it's right. I wouldn't want it any other way. But I deeply miss having my brothers around all the time.
Praying that God will bless my brothers as they're in the States, and that He'll give our "three-of-us-now" family sweet times together. It'll be different. But I know God will bring good things no matter what. I thank Him for that!
Question of the day:
Does anybody know what it's like to have older siblings move, and you're left at home? How was it for you? Good things and bad things about it?
