This week our home has hosted the C.E.F. (Evangelical Backyard Bible Camp). It’s a wonderful program where Evangelical Missionaries (teenagers camp counsellors) come & run a day camp (couple of hours in the afternoon) for you & your neighbours. I wasn’t sure how many children we’d have coming, but thanks to the prayers of many, we have a good turn out. The teens are full of energy & play games, tell stories, sing songs, you name it.
I am responsible for providing snacks and a yard. We used the front yard & that’s how we picked up some more kids in the neighbourhood, as they were interested in what was going on. Oh, yes, I am also responsible for providing a basement in case of rain. Guess what the weather was in the second half of the camp, lol. Baking buns each day & cutting up some fruit & veggies & other various snacks … not much investment for a whole lot of fun.
So really, I personally, haven’t had to “do” anything, besides provide the snacks and give the boys a drive to their next camp. (Marshall and Alex do 3 camps each day. I believe we were the 6th week!) It’s been fun & the boys have been wonderful, so I made up a thank you card for them, letting them know they are appreciated with their hand in making this possible.
On the inside is a book mark. The Cork Paper is from Karen Foster. (I love that PP, in that it is actually cork, not a look alike print). CS: Close to Cocoa, Apple Cidar (I believe PP from S.U. Autumn Mini cat ‘07) The Stamp is from S.U. retired set: “Little Inspirations”, Copper antique brads. I just used a Coluzzle to cut parallel lines in the card to slide in the book mark.
Here’s a close up of the Book Mark. I’m not sure where I got the green paper, but it’s almost like a mulberry paper it’s so thick.
With 2 days left of the camp, please pray for relief from rain, at least on the last day, as one of the neighbours offered to make home made ice cream & with 11-15 kids, I’d like to enjoy it outside. As I type this, Liam is snoozing upstairs & the camp is rockin’ in the rec room down stairs.
