So I am currently at Camp! We got all moved in on Friday and while my real house is still pretty messy I'm getting organized in our little apartment here at camp. For those who don't know, my husband is the assistant executive director at a Christian Kids Camp. We essentially are being 'trained' to take over the Directorship together either next year or whenever we and the current directors feel we are ready. It really is a huge blessing to be here and is honestly amazing to see The Lord bring about something that Bob and I have both been passionate about for many years. We feel very called to camp ministry and are amazed that our life has led this way since we both worked here over 10 years ago.
Camp is definitely a unique place to live, and raise kids (and ahem bring a newborn home to in 5 weeks or so.... Yikes!) We are really fortunate to have a wonderful apartment with our own rooms, bathroom, kitchen and living area. It may seem simple but to have a private space of our own for our family is really important to me and we are blessed to have it. The view we wake up to daily is stunning. We are surrounded by ocean on three sides and we have eleven acres of grounds for Hazel to explore. And hey... Having a pool, playground, Rock wall (not that I'm using it much these days), and countless other activities isn't bad either!
I've been thinking a lot about the benefits of being here for the summer. Our internet is pretty sketchy (so my posts may be infrequent) which is both a blessing and a curse as it causes lots of frustration but also is wonderful to be more 'off the grid'. I commented yesterday how I was missing out on so many cute photo ops wi Hazel because I tend to not carry my phone around with me! I guess I will have to store them in my memory instead of my camera roll!!
Ultimately we love Camp ministry because it's a ministry. We are here being the hands and feet of Jesus and showing His love to these kids and counsellors who visit us every week.
Hope you all have an amazing start to the week! I'm praying my posts won't be too sporadic now that we are out here but I'm sure you'll all forgive me if they are too! :)
