Get Ready: Staff Prepare for Camp

The 2012 camp staff have been in Kenya for one week today.  They have spent their week preparing to impact the lives of over 500 campers.  In addition to learning the logistics of how camp operates, they have also spent some time in Nairobi learning more about the kids they will be working with this summer.  They went to the international church, have been on campus at one of the schools, and have seen where the kids hang out.

This summer the theme for the staff will be Resonate.  As part of their preparation, for 3 nights the staff were able to hear a local missionary speak on the theme Resonate and how we deepen our relationship with the Lord.  Larry Conway, who has been in Kenya for many years and is the father of BlueSky team member Andrew, was the speaker for those nights.

Today the staff spent some time at the climbing hills that are 10 minutes from our facility.  Our older campers go climbing so its important for the team to know some climbing basics and be familiar with the area.

It has been an incredible week of training, preparing each counselor for what the Lord is going to do in their life as well as in the lives of the campers this summer.

1st session starts on Sunday!  Would you be praying that the Lord would prepare the hearts of the campers to encounter Christ next week?
