Senior Week at Woodland Report: (Alan Borders)

June 11-17

Directors: Justin Adams & Jon Adams

There were 45 campers plus 18 staff and staff children for Senior Week.  Several are staying over as campers and staff for next week.  Four baptisms according to my wife. They are having a very good week even though they had a power outage Monday afternoon and a water problem this morning.  All was repaired and is well hoping nothing else goes wrong.

Junior Week at Woodland Report: (Jerry Carmichael)

June 18-24

Directors: Jerry Carmichael & Jeff Adams

Our theme was “The Heavens Declare the Glory of God” with the emphasis on Creation.  We had 22 adult staff members (including five couples), 17 teen staff helpers, 24 campers, and 5 week campers.  Classes were all about God’s Creation.  David McQueen spoke to everyone during morning chapel and shared with us his experiences as a geologist, especially telling about his archaeological digs in Israel, including Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. He also showed us some artifacts that he has found over the years.  He had us set up a mock dig sight and taught the teenagers how to do an archaeological dig and make a record of their findings.  Jeff and I are thankful for the good week.

E.M. Bounds (from watch.org – Bill Koenig)

“The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day.”

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
