At Camp

It's been a very busy weekend. I got here Friday afternoon and we started the registration shortly after that. Most people were already registered but we did have a few late comers. We ended up with 107 thus far. Saturday evening we had "Let's get acquainted" time and chose the teams to do the KP work.

Sunday morning (yesterday) was the biggest day yet. We had a camp full of visitors too. The morning service was wonderful! The preacher was a woman seventy named Karin and she had a terrific sermon. We also served everyone the communion. Everything went off like clockwork. Bob came over for the service. We had a huge lunch and there was a campground business meeting in the afternoon just before Bingo. Bob left before that. Then I took a thirty minute nap. I was exhausted. That evening another person preached and that was another good service. Then there was supper. It was fried chicken and all the trimmings. I didn't eat supper because I had had a large lunch. I walked around straightening everything up and wiping down tables until 9:15 and then realized I was exhausted and went to the showers and went to bed. I slept like a baby.

Today will be a prayer meeting and class work. Then this evening, after supper, another preaching service. After that we will have homemade ice cream.

I left my desktop computer mail program open at home so my mail is not coming here at camp. Anyone wanting to communicate with me will have to post on the blog. I may get Bob to shut the one down at home if I think about it. He will be going over to check on Missy, the cat.

More later....when I have time.
