(Well, West Wales to be precise. 🙂 )
If anyone out there pays any attention to my ramblings, you may have noticed there hasn’t been an entry for the past week. The reason for this being that I’ve spent the past week in Tywyn, helping Christian Camps in Wales out as a Tent Officer in one of their camps.
The main theme of the week was the life of Moses, from his birth into slavery, his adoption into Pharaoh’s household, his time of realisation in Midian and finally his role as a servant of God, confronting Pharaoh with the promises of God and leading the Israelites out of slavery. From this, Moses could be seen to be a pointer to a greater servant of God, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, Jesus Christ. O that we might see the Truth, for the Truth will set us free.
As well as being taught about God and the bible, the children had a wide range of games and activities to keep them busy. Looking back, the amount on offer was termendous! From more run of the mill things like football, netball and table tennis; through to mountain biking, dry-slope skiing, horse riding to the slightly more adventurous activities of canoing, orienteering, nighttime bivouacking and gulley bashing. Additionally, the children had day trips to the beach, and visits to the local Honey Ice Cream factory as well as free time to explore the field and relax. Hard to believe that all happened in one week, and I’m sure I missed something out of the lists.
I had a very good and blessed time, learning more about God and of God as well as making lots of new friendships and deepening existing ones, and I trust all the children enjoyed the week and got as much out of it as I did.
I am now knackered and in need of sleep!
