Last Night of Camp.....It's only the beginning!

Most people will tell you that the last night of camp can be a rough one...
Tons of sobbing and consoling and decisions made that sometimes don't affect folks once the tears are dry...
Tonight was different for us. We sobbed last night as we confessed some heavy burdens and sins to one another, and allowed God to heal so many wounds...
Tonight...we prepared. Tonight we were called out as Priests (1Pet2:9). Tonight, every student here with Malakoff committed to a life of priesthood in the here & now.

In this light, the guys aren't football players...they're priests that God has placed on a football team to show God to the players.
The young ladies aren't just in a group of friends. They are priests that God has mercifully placed in these girls lives to show them Him.
It was an awesome day and night. The Rec was fun, the weather was kind, the kids were committed and worshipful, the adults were blessed, the rookie youth minister got Youth Minister of the Day and got to where BlingBling and do yells about a Dawg Pound (thank you, thank you, kids!!!!!) and the food was still real bad....

It's been an awesome time away to focus on God....but we are ready to come home and pour out the truth and our lives on Malakoff.
