“What a looooong day!” Josh exclaimed as he slumped exhaustedly into his chair after a particularly hot Missouri summer day. His wife, Kara, sat across from him in the living room with their newborn child bouncing happily upon her lap, looking back at her husband in bemusement.

“What was bad about today?” she replied as the right corner of her mouth turned up in a faint smirk. After being married for just over six years, she knew to ask the question, even though she thought she already knew the answer.

Josh glanced back up at Kara and their son, a mischievous grin spreading across his face. Had his sarcasm become so transparent to her after their many years together?

“Well I played a lot of gaga ball today, talked to some pastors and church members, ate chicken nuggets, and took a lot of pictures,” he said smiling the entire time.

“Uh-huh…. And you get paid to do this?”

“How dare you insinuate that I all I do is just play around?” Josh replied sardonically. “Honey, it’s like Brett Favre used to say: ‘They pay me for the months and months of preparation I put in. I’d almost play the ‘game’ for free.’”

There was one day we were coming out of camper rally, and there was a kid that was having a hard time. So, his counselor went out into the lobby with him.  They were kind of over off to the side, and he was kind of leaning over the kid.  I wanted to see if something was wrong, so I went over.  (The counselor) had found a random piece of paper and a pen that only worked half-way, and he was drawing a picture of a cross and the kid was intently watching.  The kid was looking at him up in the eyes and having that conversation, and it was in a moment when everyone was filing out of camper rally.  But who cares?  They started that conversation, and the other counselor would get the kids back to their room while he finished it.  I saw a lot of those conversations all throughout the week.  All of those little conversations were the best thing about camp.

I go to Aurora United Methodist and we loved having Eagle Lake here!  I helped out as a crew member, we had a group bible study that included our Jr High and High School students.  We enjoyed having them here.  I'm a freshman, but those five days of camp have changed my life and I am so grateful.  In those short 5 days, I got to see a kid gain the confidence to pray out loud, and even gain more confidence myself to dance and sing in front of a little over 100 people. This camp has changed so many lives, and so many more to come.
