Summer Ministry

Two of my girls are at Teen Missions for the next six weeks.

They train at Merritt Island, FL until July 9. On the 10th they leave for AZ. This is not church camp, it's a tough, no frills camp. Long pants and work boots are worn at all times. Kids sleep in tents and wash their clothes and themselves using buckets. It's not for the faint of heart (or the spoiled)

Jessica has done this a couple of times before but Jasmine has only done Mustard Seeds--which is ages 4, 5, and 6. It's only four days long and a parent attends too. So this is going to be a challenging summer for Jasmine.

She wasn't so sure about it when I left her yesterday, but the rest of the team will be arriving on Tues & Wed and she'll soon be making new friends. They had to go early because Jessica is a leader.

So what are you doing this summer? VBS? Church camp? Hanging out at home?

Banana Boats

We just made banana boats! They are super easy. If you have The Christian Girl's Guide to the Bible, instructions are on page 182.
