Not Afraid Day 2 - The Morning Report

We woke this morning at 7am and hurried off to breakfast of cinnamon French toast and sausage before chapel. We opened our time with Ms. Karla and the band leading worship, singing some of our favorite Lightseeker Camp songs followed by some "Minute to Win It" games. Ms. Karla shared about how she started as Lightseeker camper back when she was in third grade, became a Counselor in Training while she was in high school, later became a counselor. Then she started leading worship at camp and was on the Design Team before ending up as our Camp Dean. The point is, she said, that God was working in her throughout her whole life to help her minister in the church and here in Lightseekers -God wants to do wonderful things for this generation of campers and perhaps He will use a few of them to be Missionary Kids, Counselors, or Leaders in the future, if they are not afraid.
Mr. Joe taught us to day about Moses and the Burning Bush. Moses was afraid when God spoke to him; he didn't want to go to Egypt and speak to Pharaoh, telling him to let God's people go. Trying new things can be very scary, but just like He promised Moses, God promises to be with us wherever we go. In fact our theme verse for the week says, " Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9.
Today's memory verse Psalm 27:1 tells us: The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid?" As we will learn this week, if God is with us we won't have any reason to stay afraid. We might be afraid to try new things, go new places or meet new people but we can know that God will help us overcome our fears.
With tat being said, the students are out right now trying new things in their unit time. I will report more later...
