Fun in the Sun

Camera problem solved. The weather held off and it has turned into a beautiful day at Daytona Beach. Here is a picture of some of our rising 8th grade girls enjoying the pool. Today the students were hit hard by Louie Giglio on what it means to carry the light of God in us. In fact at one point he said he does not believe most student groups even understand what it means to make a difference for Christ during their teenage years. He has been reading from a personal journal from a teenage girl and it is really convicting our students. I personally beleive Louie is one of the most annoited men of God that is speaking into the lives of students today. I pray that your student is soaking in the sun as well as what God is saying into their lives. Let me also say how blessed I am to be the leader of such incredible students and leaders. I’ll be taking some pictures at worship tonight and posting them for you to see. Thanks for checking in and for following us on Twitter. I know from some of the messages that you are praying for us in real time and that is making all the difference in the world.

Compassion

Throughout this week students are being challenged to make an impact in the lives of others. One way in which students are being challenged to do this is with the organization Compassion.  Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. For the cost of $32.00 a month students can help eliminate the chains of poverty. Each student was challenged tonight from the pulpit on how they can use their money to make significant change in the lives of others. Rachelle and I have sponsored a little girl for two years now and our family is completely on board with what Compassion does and stands for. If your student comes home wanting to sponsor a child help them find ways to earn money to make this a reality. We have found that the teenage years is when a foundation and a belief about being committed to missions takes place.

Jesus Messiah

Today the students were challenged to not settle for a normal life. Instead they were challenged to live a supernatural life. Chris Tomlin also played his new song Jesus Messiah. This song is off of his new album “New Love” that will be released in early September. The song is so rich with theology. When I heard it for the first time tonight I wanted to hit the floor with my knees in adoration . Here is a phrase that impacted me from this new song:

He became sin
Who knew no sin
That we might become His Righteousness
He humbled himself and carried the cross

Love so amazing
Love so amazing

I apologize that I have not posted camp pictures, I have had some issues with our camera and should have some pictures up by tom. night. I cannot wait for your students to get home so you can discuss some of the incredible teachings that they have sat under.
