Camping and Growing

The interns and the discipleship team went camping in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma this weekend. Two staff families came as well. It was a great time to explore the great outdoors, see the milky way and watch the stars (we can't see real stars in our area of Dallas), and get to know each other better. My personal stories included:
  • getting lost for an hour in the wildlife preserve (and taking pictures of the buffalo)
  • being unable to find the big dipper (since I hadn't seen it in so long)
  • getting up to watch a sunset that never happened (and having really good conversations while waiting for it)
  • and being challenged by DB - one of the staff members that shared Sunday morning with us. One of the things he mentioned was when we pray for God to remove a temptation and it doesn't go away...sometimes because we honestly don't want the temptation to go away. And he spoke of our need to stop focusing on the temptation and fall more in love with the Lord.

Please pray for me this week: that I would love the Lord and each of the people around me enough to do what is best and right...even when it hurts. Pray for wisdom and discernment.
