Kids Camp ALL THE WAY

(by Dhei Puyaoan)

Innocence. Cheerfulness. Playfulness. Those were the attitudes I’ve seen in the children who participate in our kids’ camp that was held here in Paniqui, Tarlac last weekend. As a newbie Heart Champ, I can feel the excitement and nervousness inside me. I am excited because this will be my first time to serve in kids camp and nervous because I know, I have weak relationship with children. I have a short patience when it comes to kids. So a week before the camp, I ask God for guidance and patience for the activity. I wanted to be a role model to them and at the same time I want to open their hearts and minds to the greatness of our God. So I did, instead of making those children cry, I did enjoy playing with them, teaching them songs and dance and most important I did share my knowledge about God and His Son Jesus Christ with them. And also I experienced a lot of first time in my life. Like, it’s my first time to be a speaker, my first time to serve with full time workers and my first time to eat grilled marshmallows.:) As I saw the children smiles in their faces, I can’t help but to feel inspired and relieved because I know they’re happy and blessed to be part of CFC-KFL community.

For me, kids camp is more fun and challenging than our usual youth camps. That was the only time that I’ve seen a 100% effort of service in the faces of the whole service team.  We were very grateful to be part of that camp. The whole activity serves a lesson for each one of us. May be it’s true that you’ll never get tired if you’re happy with what you are doing because I DIDN’T  get tired at all instead I AM HAPPY because I know, everything’s worth it. 🙂
