We brought a group of thirty-four people from Tabernacle Baptist Church to the Wilds Christian Camp in Brevard, NC. The journey from Wilson to the Wilds took us about eight hours including stops. We are glad to be at camp, but everyone was a little tired last night. We enjoyed a good meal in the dining hall. Cal Mair has been at the Wilds for over thirty years and is a tremendous cook. We then watched our teen campers play a rousing game of big ball. Joanna and I then followed our junior campers to their new athletic field for their competition. We had just enough time then to get to the evening service for the teen campers with Evangelist John Goetsch. He preached an excellent message from Psalm 139. You can’t 1) Fool God – He is omniscient, 2) Flee from God – He is omnipresent, and 3) Fight God – He is omnipotent.
Today has already been a great morning with activities all over the campsite. Pray for our young people. There are approximately 1,000 campers on the campsite.
This afternoon we have a little bit of free time. Several of the sponsors are going on a hike to the waterfalls. Joanna is following around some of our campers to the land trolley, the superslide, the giant swing, the craft shop, etc. I’m going to try to catch a few fish sometime today. I may even be able to catch a little nap after I get through studying some for next Sunday.
You can view photos from the week at http://www.wilds.org/gallery2/main.php later on today. They will be updating the photos throughout the week.
