    Great job on the climbing wall. Tonight. How are you liking camp so far? Tomorrow you get to meet your horse. Have you ever been horseback riding?

    Tonight I pray that you have a great night sleep. May you wake up tomorrow refreshed and ready to hear what God has prepared for you.

    Blessings,
    Michelle

    Hey Tony,

    I have loved seeing all the pictures from camp already. You have accomplished so much already. Did you ever imagine you would climb a Rockwall, go swimming, work together to get through a spiderweb and work with horses, all in 2 days. Absolutely incredible and there is so much more God is preparing you for.

    May you continue to use this time to grow stronger in your faith. Know that everything you do this week is planned with intention. You are going to be challenged in ways that allow you to grow strong.

    I can’t wait to hear what horse you are assigned to. Have fun!

    Continued prayers,

    Michelle

    Hi Tony, You and the other guys have done so much in the last few days, and there is much more to come! The activities look like they are fun and also challenging. I pray that you will continue to enjoy your time at camp and when you do things that you have never done before you can look back and say “I didn’t know that I could do that, but I did it!”

    Looks like you are having a great time. I loved watching the archery. Did you hit the target? I know it is a lot harder than it looks. I struggled hitting any targets during archery.

    Tonight I pray that you trust in the process throughout this week. There are going to be times when things get tough. You might be tired and even frustrated at times. It is through the process that God is preparing you for what comes next. Embrace every second, including the hard.

    Rest up! Sleep well. Tomorrow is going to be a great day.

    Hi Tony, That zip line looked to be pretty exciting. It’s a good picture of our walk with the Lord where, just like you guys had to trust the zip line, we have to trust the Lord to give us faith, courage and strength when we face challenging and scary stuff. I pray that you have a restful night, and that tomorrow you can continue to learn, to grow in you relationship with Christ and the other guys and have fun.

    It was so great to see you all last night. I loved seeing you all connect and have fun. The tie dyed shirts look amazing.

    Tomorrow is a big day. You get to pack up and head to the trail. Backpacking is definitely my part of the trip. It is not easy, but God has been preparing you all week for this. Everything you have done and experienced is helping to give you the skills to successfully hike along the trail.

    Remember, when times get tough, it’s our chance to turn to Jesus and Trust him.

    I pray you sleep well tonight (and that the power stays on). May you wake up tomorrow feeling prepared for the next part of your adventure.

    Proud of you,
    Michelle

    I saw on the video today that you had another adventure filled day. As you begin your trail hike tomorrow I’ll be praying that you and your fellow campers continue to have fun and also learn more about God and yourself and each other. You’ve been well prepared for your hike, and the Lord will be with you all the way.

    Hi Tony. I saw you guys on the video as you started out this morning. Looks like you had great weather. I will be praying that you get a restful night and that all goes well for you as you continue the hike tomorrow and that you will be blessed by the beauty of God’s creation.

    Hey Tony,

    I am so proud of you. Today you will end your hike. You just hiked close to 12 miles, carrying a heavy backpack. Today, you get to take that pack off. Remember that feeling…the feeling of letting go of that weight. It reminds me of the fact that often times, we carry heavy burdens. We try to deal with life alone. But I am reminded that we don’t have to carry the heavy stuff alone. We have an incredible God that wants to carry our burdens for us. All we have to do is let him. We just need to allow God into our hearts. How amazing is that.

    Today I pray that you feel His presence and that you choose to commit your life to Him.

    I am really proud of you.

    Blessings,

    Michelle

    Hi Tony. Looks like you and the others had great time on the hike! I’ve been praying that the Lord would use your time at camp and on the hike to challenge you to do things you haven’t done before and to enjoy His creation and have a good time with the other young men, but mostly I’ve been praying that the Lord would use this time to show you more about His love for you and to draw you closer to Him. I will continue to pray for you as you go back to “normal” life.
