Today was the final day of volleyball camp. It was a very blessed day from start to finish. Our campers brought great enthusiasm to their workout as they learned new skills and honed old ones. The air was alive with flying volleyballs and jumping kids! At refreshment time, we gave a short Gospel presentation. The students from Christ Church Anglican performed the “Thief” mime, which was well received. At the end of the day, campers received their very own volleyballs and goodie bags with candy and Gospel materials. It was so hard to say goodbye to our new friends, but it was wonderful that the first major outreach at the new worship center/gym had been such a success.
After a tasty dinner of left-overs, our team joined the Zuni teens for their weekly Wednesday night youth group meeting. It was a very joyful time to share together, worship together, and play games together. The sound of worship songs drifting down into the gym from the second floor balcony where the youth group meets, was a truly a blessing.
All too soon it was time to say a final prayer with and a final farewell to our Zuni friends. There were more than a few misty-eyed goodbyes as we bid our friends adieu for another year. Thankfully, we can stay in touch through social media!
