Capernaum - Texas Camp

IMG_0030.JPG

Hello Everyone, thank you for all your prayers during our Texas Camp we held in Dallas. We had 15 campers join us on this trip along with Capernaum groups from Houston, North Dallas, and Arlington. We had such a fun time participating in fun events around Dallas, hanging out with friends at our hotel, and going to club to learn about Jesus!
 
The trip was full of fun! We were able to go to Hawaiian Falls our first full day of camp, and it was an absolute blast! It was great watching our campers conquer fears of big slides and have fun doing it! One thing that always stands out when we have large group events is the kindness of others outside of our group. One of our campers Will had saw a group of teens eating ice cream and expressed his interest in getting some. The teens must have heard him because about 10 minutes later we walked out of a pool to see the same teens with a bowl of ice cream with Will's name on it. It was such an awesome moment, seeing the joy on both Will's face as well as the kids who brought him the ice cream is something I won't soon forget. Over the next few days, we also spent time looking at Dinosaurs and other cool exhibits at the Perot Museum. We also spent time spent driving Go-Karts, playing arcade games, and winning lots and lots of tickets at Amazing Jakes!
 
We had a great time going to Club and having Cabin time with our group! We talked about trusting in the Lord to conquer some of the fears we may have in our lives. We talked about the story of Peter and Jesus walking on water. Our own Grant Hibbard and Will Demers acted out the parts of Jesus and Peter during our club talks. Both our leaders and campers were able to dig deeper into some of the fears they may have; whether it was in school or with work. I think hearing that the Lord always has a hand extended to lead us or pick us up when we are down was a great message for our campers to hear. We all struggle with different fears in our lives, but the comfort that the Lord brings us in whatever we are going through is so calming and reassuring. I am so grateful for the opportunity to spend time with all our friends, and I am already looking forward to next year!
