Last week we had 135 nine to eleven year olds out for Inter #1 camp. Our speaker, Ezra, challenged these kids to live a Missional Life. He acknowledged that they are young and not likely to go and sell everything to enter full time missions, but he challenged them to listen to where God is leading and calling them. Leaders and campers alike were reminded to go and live out the Good News of Jesus that we can be in relationship with a God who loves and cares for us. God planted seeds through the words that Ezra said this week, which will take root and grow over time.
As I was walking to the leader’s meeting Friday morning I saw a single, solitary handprint smack in the middle of the sidewalk with no clues as to who left it, why they left it, or where they went afterwards; but the print was there. This unknown camper left their mark on this place and while I walked passed it struck me that in time these campers will leave their mark on the world. I am honoured that their week at Gull Lake is a part of the preparation to go and make their mark.
