A Day in the Life: Post Camp
Being an intern consists of finding the gospel in every aspect of my daily work! No matter the task at hand, I am always finding God's presence (not because I am looking but because He pours constant reminds out). If you do not live under a rock, you probably have a social media page -- which means you probably have a FaceBook page. As you saw our your feed we had our first camp last week at Georgia Southern University! Monday through Wednesday was camp for the boys; Thursday through Saturday was camp for the girls. It was beyond inspiring to see coaches, athletes, staff, and volunteers from all over come together to worship the one God who created us all as equal. Not only was worship phenomenal, but seeing the way the coaches/athletes incorporated the teachings from each day into their sport was mind blowing..
Okay, okay.. now to my point. Whenever a camp wraps up, my job as an intern is to go through each and every permission wavier so that we, FCA, can make a spreadsheet over each individual coach and camper. Let me break down these numbers for you real quick. Twenty boys teams and nineteen girls teams attended camp. Each team consisted of an average of 20 individuals -- coaches and athletes. Some teams had more, some teams had less. I see you doing the math right now.. Yes! That's over 600 waivers for this intern to go through in a matter of a few days!
BUT, I say all of that to say this.. In the midst of tired eyes and weary hands, God knocked on my heart gently and said, "All of those people, each individual person you are putting into the computer, heard the gospel last week at camp. Some came into camp not knowing my name, but because of obedience they left knowing my name." Chill bumps are covering my body as I am typing this blog because I can't shake the power behind that message. There is power in the name of Jesus!!!
All For His Glory,
