It has been a busy year to say the least. In July alone, I was on the road for two weeks at the ICAST fishing trade show and then Camp Agape for the second week. I serve at Camp Agape, which is a grief camp for children ages 7-12, every summer I am able and I do it because I love to enrich the lives of our next generation. It is a hard camp in a lot of ways but I get a lot out of it, as do many of the other adults who serve there. The situations and backgrounds these kids come from are many times tough but our message at the camp is that Jesus has defeated death and we trust in God to heal us. The last day of this camp, we took a detour to the regularly scheduled program and went fishing with some leftover biscuits from breakfast that morning. Yes, I said biscuits! It was awesome to see kids having fun in the outdoors with a simple pursuit. Some of these kids had never been fishing before. Others hadn’t been in a long time.
I tell you this all not to boast that I am helping others by volunteering but, instead, to inspire you and others to get out and give back. I have so much gratitude in my life and giving back is one of the ways I show that love. Thanks for the support and staying in touch!
