The Preschool group stayed on campus. Their workers are so faithful and do such a wonderful job of laying a foundation in the lives of little ones. Thank God for these faithful servants.
Groups one through four went to Reunion Ranch and had a special day of outdoor events. A much needed midweek break for teachers and those who prepare food and snacks. (They still have plenty to do, but it certainly makes the day a little easier.) The leaders who go to Reunion Ranch have a very long hot day unless they are willing to get wet which makes the day go much better.
The fifth and sixth grade had the biggest response to a challenge to follow Jesus that we have ever had in a single week of Camp Crestview. Eighty-six important decisions were made. Twenty-five were first time professions of faith in Christ. The remaining decisions were renewals of a previous commitment or a sense of being called to special service to Christ. Twenty-nine indicated the latter decision. This means that in the two weeks of Camp Crestview forty-six students expressed a call to Christian service. This does not mean that they will all go into the ministry. What it means is that they feel a calling to some kind of Christian leadership. Many of them may in fact become vocational ministers.
What an amazing day!
