so... camp ended yesterday

it was amazing.. it was truely tiring... frustrating... stressful... awesome... emotional... life-changing... heart-touching... beautiful...

it was really different being on the other side of camp.. not the "camper" side.. or the "counselor" side... i got to experience the "administrative" side of things i guess?

me and beau were always running around trying to get things ready for the next thing that was going to happen... we had to leave the "being awesome with kids" primarily up to the other staffers.. who did an amazing job...

it was kind of frustrating that most of the time we were driving around preparing things.. when we could be out in the community loving on some kids... or helping out the homeless shelter...

but we did get to go to some of the sites on most days and those days were awesome.. it was really awesome to see our Go Campers pouring their lives into loving these little kids around them.. let them play with their hair... giving piggy back rides... playing games with them.. loving them.. it was amazing..

God was really doing work in these students' lives... it was beautiful...

my dad got to come down for one of our late nights... it was the creative worship night... and he thought it was really awesome.. it really meant alot to me that my dad got to come see what we have been planning for the past 2 months.. i'm glad he got to be a part of our worship night..

finally.. our kids have gone home... i'm back home... after taking a 14 hour siesta yesterday...

still alittle worn out.. missing seeing those kids running around campus... seeing their hands raised worshiping.... miss seeing their faces... their tears... their smiles... but its okay.. go camp has a myspace.. and 100% of our campers use it.. so i get to hear their stories.. and hopefully continue to see how God is working in their life..

as i read over this.. it seems very shallow.. i'm sure thats my fault.. but thats what i've got right now.. i'll work on it..
