Running To Base Camp 2012

Time for fun at Base Camp!

What an amazing start to Base Camp 2012 – Found! Whether you arrived by shipwreck or crash landing, we are so excited to have you all joining us this week!!! We hope you will learn a lot with your fellow voyagers, Amelia A. Hart and Ty Tanic. I think it is going to be quite an adventure. Just remember to NEVER touch the oboe that Jimmy the Raccoon in guarding, and I think we will get along just fine. Although, I wonder what happens if I touch it? Do you think I would be allowed, or does NO touching mean everybody?

Between singing, games, classes, and snack, it was a busy evening. Did you enjoy your time with classes? I know that the first grade boys worked really hard on some chalk drawings only to have them destroyed by Miss Kendra. They couldn’t believe it and neither could I. But, do you all remember the bigger picture as it connects to God and creation?

God created the entire world and everything in it. When He created it, it was good. Then, as Ms. Jodi told our younger campers, Satan came along and tricked Adam and Eve. Sin entered the world, and just like our 1st grade boys, God feels very sad because sin messed up the perfect world He made for us. I don’t like the idea of God being sad, but I think there is more to the story. We’ll have to come back tomorrow night to learn more.

The end of our evening was rounded off by meeting Flipper and Mulligan from Mulligan’s Island. What do you think of these two castaways? Do you think that the “Dormant” Volcano can really help them get home? She seemed to have some interesting requests to even consider helping them. Did you like the feeding one another cake or hula dancing the best? Personally, I really like the hula dancing, but think that Mr. Kevin should really help them out.

  1. Grace says: We had an awesome night last night. The games were really fun, and the snacks were so, so, so yummy. I already know Luke 19:10 – “And he said to them, today salvation has come to this house, for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save the lost.”

  2. Wow, Grace! That is great work on Luke 19:10. Are you helping your brother and sister learn it now too? I’m so glad you had fun last night!

  3. Hey Forest Hills Family! We’re praying for you as you have another adventure with Base Camp. The scenery looks a lot like our backyard here in Togo! We miss you guys! We’re praying for a fruitful Base Camp and that our Great God is glorified through it all! Love from Togo, The DeKrygers
