My present is that I’m at camp.
It’s hot. There are bugs.
On Monday there will be 96 excited, tired, hungry campers here.
My present is to set aside my own wants, demands, comforts, desires.
I am here to serve.
From nearly the moment of setting foot/tire on the camp grounds, it’s been running through my head. I’m here to serve. I’m here to be available. I’m here to offer what I have. I’m here to pour out.
This time is not about me. This week is about others, not just the campers, but the 60+ staff. I am here to serve.
Lord, please help me to keep remembering to stay out of the way this week. This is not about me. This week is about you. It’s about serving others. It’s a here I am, use me kind of week.
Tonight is that big breath I mentioned before – the in-between, getting ready moment. It’s still a moment to serve and help someone else. It’s still a moment to be ready.
The full staff arrive tomorrow. Campers on Monday.
While I serve this week, would you pray for the staff and campers at Camp CUMCITO? It’s a hard, challenging week. We push the limits in so many ways – physically and spiritually. Pray for God to move in a mighty way while we serve.
My hope is to post again during the week, but I may not be able to based on time, energy, and wifi availability. Thanks for reading and for praying for me and everyone at Camp CUMCITO this week!
