Swimming against the flow! “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” This was the main theme of our camp this week which taught the children that it is okay to be different, and that they don’t need to change for anyone.
I felt that the work that God allowed us to do not only affected the childrens’ lives, but ours as well. Just to make a kid smile or to just play a game with them made a big difference. Even though we were only at the camp for three days we were able to bond and form amazing relationships with the kids.
We also have had many opportunities to paint and do different work projects at the school! We were able to help out at a place called Kairos,which is a place for people who have cancer. It allows families that can not afford a place to stay while their kids are receiving treatment at the hospital. Many families travel a long way just to be able to stay there and take care of their child. We had the privilege of being able to meet a couple of the patients there and even though they have cancer they were the most joyful and thankful people! At Kairos, we painted the walls a bright yellow color and the color immediately changed the whole mood of the place, it brought sunshine and hope! Even though we only painted , God truly worked in us to make the patients there happy!
