Well it seems that I am off to camp for an incredible summer of serving the Lord. I am very excited to see what He wants to use me for this summer! I would like to ask you all for prayer that I may serve the Lord and that I would allow Him to use me. And that I would find my strength in Him and in Him alone. Thank you and have a great summer!

No longer will I call you Lord and not serve you. No longer will I acknowledge your greatness and yet abandon your work. I am yours God and even though I am weak I will serve you just give me your strength and instruct me in your ways.
