Boot Camp starts tomorrow morning and it really is incredible to see quality individuals pull together as a team and accomplish difficult tasks with ease. For the most part, I am in charge of Boot Camp, our summer camp for 250 of our rising sixth graders. To say I’m in charge is mostly to give someone to ask questions for a final answer or blame when stuff goes wrong. I am more than willing to be that person.
Our staff has been through a lot of transition over the last couple of years including a significant transition in the last nine months. One thing we have learned over this difficult season is focus. This staff is hard working to the point where the job isn’t done unless it’s done to the best possible solution.
Another piece of the puzzle that makes this summer so enjoyable is the exceptional intern staff working with us this summer. They are self-starters with humble hearts. I am truly impressed with these young men and women.
As we arrive at the church sometime before dawn tomorrow I know we are about to experience the most amazing event we have ever had the privilege of being a part of. These students are going to come back with memories they will never forget. They will come home exhausted, encouraged and changed. I love what I do. I love who I work with. But mostly I love who I work for. Thank you God for allowing some young punk to introduce students to you for the very first time. You are amazing!
