Zipper Nippers

It's old news that Micah loves the zip line. He only went down it a million times last year at camp. He kinda takes after his mom, who earned the nickname Zippany during her high school camp years :)

This year Josiah and Rebekah would not be outdone by their big brother. It was kinda hard telling the pictures apart since they all wore the blue youth group shirt that day, but here are each of the kids.

That little blue dot right above the tree is me. Josiah (and Bekah) were not strong enough to take the rope up the zip line. 

Yeah, for Josiah!

Yes, they make a harness especially for the little ones. It was just Bekah's size. Believe it or not, there was another little girl who was just a tad smaller than Bekah, who went also.

Rebekah was fearless when she jumped! Before her harness was even hooked to the zip line, she was standing at the edge of the platform with no fear. At the time my stomach lurched because the first thought I had was, "She doesn't know she needs to be hooked up before she jumps." Even now it makes me queasy to remember her lack of fear.


Camp was amazing this year. I am still in awe of how God is allowing Chris and I to be used in the lives of our young people.

Though such blessings aren't without its struggles. Where God has great things planned, Satan will attack and try to create confusion, stress, and distraction.

The services were great. Camp preaching always has a way of getting ahold of a camper (and a counselor's) heart. There were many decisions made at camp this year ranging from salvation to a surrender to missions.

And of course, fun was had by all!

Chris and Micah sang a song together for chuck wagon.
