Still, always, my favorite moments of the day are with kids. I LOVE my partner churches. Like can’t wait to get there and sometimes cry at the end because I become so close with the church staff.

But let’s be honest, I got in this and stay in this FTK (that’s college kid slang for “for the kids”- I have to be cool & hip and use their language if I want to be their leader). Kids are SO amazing–if you haven’t spent time with an elementary student lately, you need to do that this week.
I went around asking kids what their high was (best part) and what their low was (worst part) for the day. One little girl said she definitely had a low:
“The only problem is that my cheeks are hurting worser and worser because I just can’t stop smiling and laughing.”
Today it poured. A full out ruin all your outdoor-camp-plans-type of storm. And we had more fun than ever. Did I mention I love my staff? And my photographer, Mark, who is capturing the beauty and wonder of it all so well…
