Sunday night – Camp Tejas
We are off to a great start. Had a GREAT dinner (too much really) and then free time in the game room and the basketball court.
A trivia Christmas game began our evening devotional. Since we are here for the Lights of Tejas Christmas Outreach we focus on the story of Christmas and our personal response to every part of ‘HIS’tory!
- The hope prophesied– Isaiah 9:6- 7 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.
- Our hope – Luke 2:1-20
- Is our hope in him?
- The Inn –
- Where have we said there is no room for Jesus here in this part of my life?
- The Stable –
- This is where we come to him – What do we need to bring to him? What do we need to lay at his feet?
- Our hearts –
- Are they fully his?
Our mornings start early and Camp Tejas has been waiting for us. In fact this is a week earlier than we usually come. Camp Tejas asked if we could come earlier to help them get their lights hung so they can practice all of their light shows, etc.
We thank God for a safe trip here and for the opportunity to serve.
We pray for:
- Good weather
- Great attitudes
- Team work
- Everyone stay healthy
- The students to take the devotional time seriously and allow the Holy Spirit to touch their hearts and draw them closer to OUR hope – our Savior – Jesus!
