I know I said it before, but Base Camp is one of the best times of the YEAR and starts tomorrow! We are so excited and can’t wait for you to join us! Whether you’re a camper or staff, you never know what to expect. Some things go as planned while other times things need a little adjusting, but it doesn’t matter as long as we are learning what God has in store for us. Do you know that it can be different things for different people? Some of you probably already know a lot about Joshua. Some others may just think of their cousin or friend when they hear the name Joshua. No matter who you are, I am betting God has something new to show each of us (campers and staff alike!). We just need to keep an open mind and heart. Sometimes it is our willingness to listen and learn that makes all the difference. I hope you’ll bring a willing heart when you come and that continue to ask your friends to join us. Especially if they don’t know anyone else or don’t know much about the Bible, they may need to be asked more than once to give it a try.
Okay, so as we try to keep are mind and heart open, maybe seeing something we’ve never seen or realized was there before, I want you to take a look at this picture. What do you think it is?
If I didn’t know the secret, my first guess would be some sort of maze, and maybe it is. I honestly didn’t try to work my way through it! There is actually a secret word in it. Can you see it? You may need to look at it in different ways to figure it out, but it says JESUS. Now that I told you, is it easier to see? Maybe just having a clue that a word was there helped you see it. If you don’t see it, don’t worry. Sometimes it takes a while to piece things together. Of course, for our youngest campers, it would also help if we all could read. You’ll get that down the road, though, too!
Speaking of things to get, have you figured out where CJ has been? She actually just got home this morning and gave me a few more clues. These will probably be the last so you may need to think about them all to put it together.
No pictures for these clues:
4) This state is not connected to any other state but is connected to another country.
5) This place became our 49th state in 1959.
Whether we figure out where CJ has been or not, I hope it has been fun thinking about it. I am really glad she is back. I haven’t seen her in a long time!
Hope you get lots of rest tonight and geared up for the start of Base Camp 2015: Joshua! See there!
