So I know that it has been a very long time since I have posted on here and well I didn’t have much to post on at first and when I did there wasn’t enough time for me to sit down and type something out. So it has been a very busy summer. I got done with VBS and a week later we left for Denver. We spent 10 days in Denver. When we got back from Denver we started camps up. Camps ran for the month of July and they were incredible, I will talk more on that in just a moment. When I was done with camp that very week we had an in state missions trip where we were asked to do a VBS for a small church in a small town in Montana. Now that I am back from that I have a lot of work to get done before our fall programs start back up. So it has been a very busy summer. I have been trying to make it up to virginia city when I have time to visit Cathy. Cathy is the girl I was talking about in my last post. She said it was ok that I use her name.
Camp was amazing. I loved being the speaker. It was a lot of fun. I think i discovered a lot about myself while i was helping to lead teens into a deeper relationship about God. I thought back to my days at camp when I was younger. I wish I had a speaker that really knew how to put things into terms I understood. Camp was always amazing for me but I think what was most impact-ful from those times were the relationships I formed and in essence the small groups. I was blessed to be a speaker and to direct the small groups. Anyway what i discovered was the biggest things I let get in the way with my own relationship with God. I get to prideful. I let my guilt take over from things i have done. Frankly I get lazy as well. I don’t want to spend my precious free time with a God that I can’t see. I also discovered my three major prayer requests. So if you pray for me ever this is what I would like you to discuss with God on my behalf. I certainly pray for these things myself too, but i can use the extra prayer. So if you think about it. Pray that I make a difference, I can be secure in my relationships, job, and myself, That I can have peace. All that to say Camp was impactful for me still.
Speaking of things we don’t have time for. Have you noticed all the uproar on the health care reform? Seriously I mean it seems like nobody has read the bill and so they continue to fight with something they are making up in their own heads because they feel 1000 pages is too much to read. What?! Are we such an ignorant and add nation that we can’t sit down and read this bill when it is our job cough cough (senators and congressmen) cough cough to read those things! Seriously, if I were elected by the people to read those things and to vote yes or no on things, I would read. You know what i realized by watching the news footage from the town hall meetings? I realized that it’s not just the church where people are completely afraid of change and are completely uninformed about the way “our america” is going without this change. We need health care reform. I am one of those 50 million Americans without health care! I need health care! If I get sick I go into debt deeper than those doctors who went all the way through med school (that was a jab at how expensive graduate schooling and collegiate schooling is). Even then if I had health care those who now control that health care would do everything they could not to pay for my medical bills! Seriously, don’t get sick in america. Don’t do anything that requires change in america. America resists change as much as possible. I am sorry but I am sick. I am sick of people resisting change wherever possible. I am sick of people who demonize those of us who strive for change. Change for the better. Don’t you think that we have your best interests at heart? Ok so I am talking about the church as well. Oh well God help us to make a difference.
