Church Camp 2009! (best yet)

Yesterday I got home from church camp at carolina creek! It was TOTALLY amazing and I am so grateful I got to go! God did great things... almost 30 people surrendered their life to Christ!! Now THAT was an AMAZING night! It was right after the speaker, Tim Bach, basically explained how he got to where he was. And let me tell you, by the time he was done, I don't know if there was a dry eye in the house. He made a lot of people appreciate what they have a lot more and realize that no matter what trial God has given them, or what pain they have experienced... not only is it not the worst that's out there, but that God can turn around ANYONE'S life, no matter what!
When I heard his story, I felt like someone was doing some serious tugging at my heart. And just watching him tell his story in front of everyone, totally filled up with God, definitely widened my eyes to how amazing and indescribable God really is. Because he turned that man's life around!

Basically it was a great week, and I know I got a whole lot out of it. I think my favorite "theme" was this: If a moment doesn't become a movement, then the moment means nothing. Which is basically saying that if you're on this spiritual high with God but then don't do anything about it, that high meant nothing. And I know that week is definitely going to change some things in my life!
This is the outdoor chapel, my 2nd favorite place at camp. (My favorite is the worship area.. wish I had taken pictures.. it's great!) It's a really beautiful place... a lot of great things happened there!
This is Rachel. We've talked a little before, but I really got to know her at camp. Rachel is great! I love her humor, and she's very sweet. We're going to be living together again in about a week for my mission trip to Kentucky!
Isn't this cool? Cat and I took 45 minutes out of the day to relax in the cabin so she could do this to my hair! I had a hard time staying still :) but loved the result! :)
I am so thankful for what God did in everyone's lives last week! =D Talk to you soon!
