So this week I am at Crusaders Camp with 17 of our Kids From New Life Church. John and I serve as the Children's Pastor there. I was going to try to "Work" during the day and be there for them and be here for them at night. I have had Internet issues so it has been more like- be there for them in the day, and be there for them at night :)
Today while in the breakfast line- I heard the funniest conversation. It became my facebook status- Conversation heard in 8-11 camp line... Man I need to find that girl from last night. She played basketball all night and didn't stink.
I tried not to laugh as I looked at the little guy behind me in line. He himself could have embraced a can of Extra Dry.
I also had a little girl approach me and ask if I saw her Ziplock baggie of money that she left on a table. I said which table? She said- you know- one of them around here. I said- no sorry. I asked her if she had more money and she did. I also asked her if she was having fun. She told me that she was outside of having to watch this other girl who was a "newbie" at camp. What 9 year old knows the word newbie? That freaks me out.
At their "Round up" (morning devotion time) I was approached by another boy who asked me if I knew where his dorm counselor was. I said no (since I don't know any of the men counselors). He looked at me and said- don't answer so quickly you might want to think about it. LOL
Then after "Round up" I was approached by a girl that goes to our church. Her cousin had thrown up in the hall by the bathrooms and they wanted me to come and help her and clean up the vomit. Oh yes please can I (I thought). Instead I smiled and went to help her. She was pale as a ghost and mortified that she had thrown up in front of other kids. I went and put paper towel on it and then went to help her. Went back to clean it up to have about 7 kids hovering asking how to clean up vomit. Yep I did. Maybe they could have that as an elective this next year. Vomit cleaning 101.
So just wanted to update you all. I am in Redfield, AR. The tiniest town in America (OK close to it). There is a really cool restaurant that looks like an orange on the left had side of the road on the way here. I might just get adventurous and go check it out one day for lunch. NO PROMISES!!
Have a great Tuesday -
