Camp Update 14 OMC

The kids as well as the adults had a blast at OMC.  Lots of shaving cream, tooth paste and other cool stuff were flying everywhere.  Imagine 300 kids running wild & having fun!  The coolest part though is that there is a point to all this madness. The challenge of OMC is for each team to complete as many tasks as possible during the allowed time. Each child does one task at a time. The most important rule of the game is that you can’t say “no.” If someone needs help with a task, they may ask anyone and that person must agree to help. The teaching point is that God has some “tasks” for you and some of them may be a little messy or difficult but you should always be ready to say “yes” to God and let Him direct you to use your unique abilities. One of the things we love about Centri-Kid is that every activity has a lesson for kids. They even learn about what God wants from them in the recreation times.

We hope the rest of you back in the real world are having a great time! I’m not sure that we are ready to join you again just yet but maybe by tomorrow morning… BTW, your kids would love to hear from you so if you haven’t emailed me: or commented on my blog, take a minute to do it now.

Camp Update 12

Things that your kids have said about camp:

“This rocks!”

“The food is great and it is lots of fun and I have learned a lot but I do miss my family a tiny bit.”

“Miss Debbie is so nice and this is the best camp ever in the whole wide world!!”

“I like camp because you get to be with people who like you.”

“I thought I would miss my family but…?”  I won’t finish that one!

“It is like being in KidzWorld all week!”

“I like the food and the new friends that I have made!”

Camp Update 12

Good Morning Parents!  The kids are up and getting ready to go to breakfast.  After breakfast we all gather as a church group for morning devotions.  Your kids are learning that starting your day off with Bible study and prayer is a good way to stay on track with God.  Today is the day the kids have been waiting for all week.  OMC  This is where they are going to get messy.  I will post some pictures of OMC around 3pm.  Have a great day and keep praying for us.

Camp Update 11

Here are some more pictures that I thought you would like to see.  Found a battery for the bus and it is in Springfield getting another small problem fixed but we should be ready to go on Friday morning Lord willing.  Keep praying for your kids they are having a great time and I far as I know no one is requesting to go home.  There are many that want to stay for another week!  Good night everyone. I need sleep.
