I am currently at Camp Ta-Pa-Win-Go in northeast TN to speak for the coming week to the elementary aged campers.  The theme this year is Shark Week! I have been struggling for close to a year as to what to speak on with such a theme!

The camp sent me an acrostic that they are using this week with the word Shark which finally gave me an idea.  I have a few sketch board stories that I am very used to doing but I also put together a new series from the book of Ruth. The acrostic has the word Redeemer for the R in shark so I am using the lessons on Ruth to highlight that word.

We have a large group of campers this week although it doesn’t seem to be quite as full as some other weeks I’ve seen. Still God knows each one who is here and knows their individual needs.

It’s been very hot with no rain which can make for a great week! The outdoor activities have gone on uninterrupted and the campers are all having a great time!
