Camp Orlando

It has taken me all day to get this posted. I've been unpacking and doing laundry for most of the day! Camp was so much fun! The theme of the camp was 'Make every second count!' And it was based off a TV show called 24. The services were awesome, over 40 kids were saved!! Praise the Lord!!! We had a service in the morning where Ben Trueblood was the speaker. And the night services were lead by the Senior pastor of our church, Pastor David.


We had free time from 1 to 6 everyday. They had tons of activities! We could swim, play volleyball, basketball, or football, there was a rock climbing wall, there was paint balling, and one day there was mud wrestling! I defiantly was not planning on getting in the mud pit, but while I was taking pictures, I was attacked by a group of people and dragged into the mud! We played tug-o-war too!

We got out of the evening service around 9:30 and then had something called 'late night' One night they had big blowup things, another night we had a talent show, and the last night we had a birthday party for Pastor David!
The services at night were amazing. Pastor David is such a great speaker, and he touched the hearts of many students! His messages were very deep and had a major impact on me! I can't even put into words how much had an impact on me! At the end of the week more than 40 people were saved, and were baptized Friday night! Because we were in a church, there was no Baptismal pool, so they were baptized in a 'horse trough!' When each person was raised from the water we all cheered and shouted and rejoiced with them! It was so exciting!I am still recovering from the lack of sleep from all the late night talks and early mornings! It was was all worth it, to see all the lives that were changed by Camp Orlando! Our God is so awesome and He has opened my eyes up to so many things this week! The main focus of our cabin leader was to help us deepen our walk with the Lord to prepare us for next year. I came away from camp feeling more closer to the Lord than ever! I am so glad I went to camp this year!
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18
