This week has been so fun, we cannot believe it’s already Friday! There has been nonstop fun, from the theme nights to the silly lunch skits and everything in between! It has been such a joy to celebrate America’s birthday with your 2nd through 5th graders this week.
As we finish off a great week at camp, we also learned the ending to Moses’ incredible story. The Israelites were surrounded by the angry Egyptians, with nowhere to go. But God always had a plan for them and was always with them. Moses tells his people,
Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.
– Exodus 14:13-14
With Moses’ staff, God parted the Red Sea, allowing the people to cross the water and escape slavery! The story gets even more amazing- because it relates to Jesus and us. We are all bound to the chains of our own sins and are unable to save ourselves no matter how hard we try. God sent His perfect Son, Jesus, to die for us so we can be freed from our own slavery to sin!
This Good News applies to each and every one of us. So no matter how young, if we believe that Jesus is God’s Son and ask for forgiveness of our sins, we are forever free!
Parents, we hope you’ve been encouraged by the reminders of our Good Father! Thank you for trusting us with your precious kids and giving us a chance to love on them all week!
