linking this up at Little Somethings!
This has been a busy, busy week! I haven't even unpacked or done laundry from vacation, because I just haven't had time. I spent most of the week over at our state youth camp, Camp Niangua, taking pictures, talking to kids, and oh...hanging out with that boyfriend of mine. I didn't actually stay at camp. (This past week was north week--my church goes to south week. We have so many pre-teen aged campers that we have to split it up.) So I went with my dad in the mornings (he had to teach a class) and came back in the evenings for the service. The theme this year has been Useless without Christ. Fifty-one kids this week realized that they are useless without Him. Did you read that? Fifty-one salvations! Talk about incredible! God allowed me the privilege of leading two of those to Him. As Christians, this is what we are called to do. And even though my heart feels light, it is also burdened for these kids. So many of them come from broken homes. So many of them have no idea how loved they truly are. So be in prayer for these kids. They really, really need it.

God also spoke to me this week. I'm having trouble with my health right now. (I'd rather not talk about it just yet. But be in prayer. I have an MRI next week that I'm stressing out about.) My boyfriend and his youth pastor rallied a group to lay hands on me and pray last night. I have peace now. I know that no matter what happens, God is still in control. Things will work out, even if it's not the way I want them to. Everything will be okay. I have had so many people encourage me lately, that I know it must be a God thing. He is at work right now, of that I am sure.

This is probably the WORST picture of us, ever. But it makes me laugh.

It's hard to believe summer is almost over!



  1. I'm sorry about your health! I will be praying for you! Cute pictures, and love love love the first one.

  2. That first shot is incredible - I'll be praying for you. I hope everything turns out okay.

  3. Oh, how I love you. I hope everything is alright with your health, and I'll keep you in my prayers. Church camp is a blessing and it's awesome you got to help out this week. Also, nice photos. =)
