Today was the start of the 2.5day kids camp at church. It is running from 8am-10pm, and finishing before the Sunday morning church service. Ages range from about 4 right up until 15 and I counted around 40 kids. All the children are sleeping in the church. We opted to sleep in out own beds, the deciding factor was when we looked at the timetable and saw they get up at 6am. Over here they seem to like their early mornings. If someone arranges to meet you in the morning or wants to come round, I've learnt to ask what time as they usually mean around 7am. I call that nighttime, not morning!
 
Today went really well and I was really impressed by the children's behaviour and enthusiasm. The programme consists of typical Bible club activities - singing, games, crafts and Bible story. After registration, there was a time of worship when they all sung their little hearts out. It was an amazing atmosphere. After that they had breakfast and then split into 3 for the first of their 90min Bible time. This consisted of a Bible story and craft. The theme is the Holy Spirit. The group I was with made a book to write their memory verses in. After lunch there was more singing and games and their 2nd talk. The day ended was 2 DVD's -Jonah and The Prodigal Son.
 
All in all it was a really good day. I don't know how much sleeping there is going to be tonight though-we'll see in the morning !
