“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.’”

We have some new neighbors next door to us - a young family, mom and dad in their 30s and two girls. We had gotten to know them over the last year-and-a-half, and I had invited them to church. They never came to church, but they came to camp. So, the girls came to camp and each night when my wife and I got back home around 7, their whole family would be outside, and they would come over to our house and talk about camp for an hour. We talked about things like: ‘I didn’t know church was fun!’ ‘We didn’t realize you could dance or jump up and down in church.’ It has kinda opened the door for them to come back to church.
The number one question we received at camp was “What about this Bible?” We gave away over 20 Bibles at camp. We had on little girl who came, and her friend’s mom came and talked to me. She said that her daughter was embarrassed because she had to borrow her grandmother’s bible for camp, and it was awful because it had all these old words in it. Not only did we give her a Bible, but we gave her little brother a Bible as well. And I just loved it because they had been coming to Upward Basketball but had never come to church. It wasn’t until after camp that they felt confident in doing that.
