Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
Ephesians 2:7-10 The Message

We are home from Teen Camp, a little sore and a little tired, but it's all worth it when I think about what God has done this week in the lives of kids and teens.

We took 5 teens (all boys) to Teen camp and every one of them re-committed their lives to Christ. We had an awesome speaker, Eric the Youth Pastor from Clover Valley. He really connected with the teens. I hope that we can have some sort of camp reunion/worship night thing like Brian W. used to have at Lake Tapps. I think it would be fun for the kids and help them remember the commitments they made at camp. We'll see.

We have made plans to keep our youth and the Wishram youth connected through the school year by having different things periodically. I am so excited to get youth group going. I know that God has big things planned for Glenwood and I have come back from camp ready to go!

I love camp and can't wait for next year!!!!!!!
