As camp photographer, I had the privilege of seeing activities in many parts of the program. I was very glad I took my bike for getting around and back and forth!

One of the special things about this Family Retreat is that my friend, Magdalene Nungu, is here from Cameroon. She is the founder and director of a disabilities ministry in the Bamenda area of the Northwest Province. I met her last year when I was part of the team distributing wheelchairs through her organization.

Our campers arrived today (yesterday, really, since it's after midnight).

Talitha and I arrived at Castaway Club about 4:30, along with most of the other volunteers. Talitha is especially happy that her cousin, Betsy, came up from Chicago to work and brought along her friend, Hannah.

I am so excited for Joni and Friends Camp. I would love to give you guys some reasons why I am so excited.
Okay, the first reason is that this is my very first time volunteering at Joni and Friends Camp. Last year, when my mom went for the Minnesota Joni and Friends Camp I didn’t really feel like I was ready to go to one. But now I am ready.
Reason two: I get to bring my violin and play music for people. I just love being able to minister to people that way!
Reason three: I get to take care of an adorable little friend I know!
Reason four: I get to room with other girls from my church!
Reason five: Some of my friends are going from church!
And finally, Reason six: This is a great opportunity for me to serve others and to be like Christ and his image in Mark 10:45 “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” I get to serve others maybe even in the smallest ways like playing violin, but the bigger thing is that I get to be like Christ.
I most heartily look forward to seeing you there if you’re going! I really can’t wait to go, can you tell?

Families and STMs (Short-Term Missionaries=volunteers) are getting ready for Minnesota's second Joni and Friends Family Retreat next week. We've put together a photo book to help campers know what to expect at camp. Near the top right-hand corner you can choose "play" for a slideshow or you may arrow through at your own pace.
