AAAAnd - We're Back.

We just spent the last week at Iowa Regular Baptist Camp. It was Jr. Girls week. And we were the morning missionary speakers. It was incredible!


340 girls were in attendance. Poor, poor Jim. But, through all the high-pitched squeals and non-stop chatter, he survived. In fact, I would say he thrived. He played miniature golf with the girls and let them dress him up as the "preacher" during their "Bridal Showcase" activity. He was an amazing sport! He even let them chase him around during the "Battleship" game!


The BESTEST part of the whole week was that at least 27 girls made professions of faith and trusted in Jesus alone to save them from their sins! What a joy! Not only that, but several girls told me how inspired they were by the missionary stories that they were willing to become missionaries themselves someday. We enjoyed a truly encouraging week! Pictures coming soon!


Here are a few notes I received from 2 of the Jr. Girl campers:



Dear Sarah Engle,

Thank you for the awesome Missionary Stories. I love all of them. I really loved the Mary Slessor one. It's my favorite! Thank you for taking the time to tell us these stories. Everyone loves them. I know I do. I really hope you keep telling stories. You're really good and you put lots of fun in chapel. Thank you so much for telling us these stories.

Sincerely,

Avery

Dear Jim and Sarah Engle,

Thank you so much for the cool Missionary Stories. They are so fun and thank you for using your time to teach us about God's word and missionaries. You have shown us kids love. Thank you.

Love,

Sounds like a wonderful time! :) It's amazing-- two little girls who already have the gift of encouragement. :)

I know...the most encouraging part of those notes was knowing that those girls were already encouraging others!
Oh...and you're VERY welcome Alica! ;)
