So, I spoke at the Winkler Bible Camp last week during their evening chapel, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30pm.
There were over 120 kids there, ages 6 to 12. They actually ran three different camps at the main site this last week. Two little buddies camps (which were three days and two nights each) and a week long camp for ages 8 to 12. So, my audience wasn't always the same.
So, how did it go?
It went really, really well!
I had an absolute blast-- everyone at the camp was very friendly and accomodating. It was really cool to be a part of a program like that and to be used by God in this way there .
Even though I hadn't been given a lot of notice for preparing (like all of four days!), I think it was better to do it at the beginning of the summer and just get it over with. Otherwise, I'd spend most of the summer stressing about working on my talks, thinking about what I wanted to say & having it occupy my thoughts.
When I mentioned this to the camp director today after church, he said that that was good to know for next year. (So I guess they were pretty pleased with how I did, if they're wanting to invited me back.)
The one disappointing thing: I didn't get a picture of myself at the camp, except for this one that Austin took:
