July 25 & 26...

Hey K2 Kanakuk Parents,
Well, I'm a few days sorry! We are in the middle changeover right now so we are getting cabins 1-14 of 14 Nighters packed and ready. I love chaotic days out here...they just keep you on your toes!

Devo: Esther 5:1-14
Verse of the Day: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-17

Morning: Normal POD morning.

Afternoon: Normal POD afternoon.

Trips: none
Treetops: cabins 1-2.

Night: K-LIFE TONIGHT! This night was so special. Dr. Joe White is the speaker and he brings a message of love, hope, forgiveness, and commitment on PURITY. It is always a heavy night but so so so very good. We always pray before this night for girls' hearts to be softened to the message of walking purely is so WORTH IT! From being a gal that didn't kiss my hubby till our wedding day I just want to scream from the highest of mountains that it is so WORTH IT! Joe does a great job on covering the whole spectrum of where your teenage daughter could be...whether that's challenging and encouraging the girls to continue their life of purity or reminding them they are forgiven for anything from their past or present. It's just a special night!

Devo: Esther 5
Verse of the Day: 2 Corinthians 10:5

Morning: Morning Karnival Practice. Karnival is a long standing tradition where the girls side puts on a carnival for the guys side. They do games, prizes, huge banners and a precious dance based on the theme that the Tribe Princess has selected. It is a lot of work but the girls LOVE performing and putting on the carnival for them.

Afternoon: We had extended rest period for the 14 nighters to pack and then headed to the girls gym to watch Tangled since we had a bit of a rain storm come through. Needless to say the girls LOVED that!

Trips: none.
Treetops: Cabins 6, 7 and 8.

Night: CROSSTALK (14 nighters) & Worship Night (28 nighters). CrossTalk was so very powerful last night. We had the theme for CrossTalk being the Passover. We walked through the Old Testament Passover with the purest lamb and then had 4 kampers speak at different locations about when Jesus became their Passover Lamb of the doorpost of their heart. We ended with Dr. Joe White reenacting the crucifixion. Joe is great at these nights as after the "drama" he speaks about how he hung there for 60 seconds and what Jesus truly did. He speaks on how a father's love is so big and that if they would have been the only person in the world that Jesus would have done that for them. He invites kampers to walk through a doorpost (we built this huge doorpost) representing that Jesus is their Passover Lamb in their own heart. The bell (we have kids ring a bell if they accept Jesus into their hearts) was ringing and ringing! It was truly a special night!
28 Nighters: had a night of worship in the Chapel. They sing, pray for CrossTalk, share scripture and pray together as cabins and small groups. They also love this night.

Okay, so there is the run down. I can't wait to see some of you all tonight and 28 night are 1/2 way there! Please let me know if I can do anything for you all!

Window to their World,
