Happy Wednesday from the Ridge!

We woke up, spent time with Jesus, ate some delicious food, and headed out to our activity classes.

At lunch, we awarded some lucky cabins with the Chariot of Cleanliness and the Spirit Stick!

Next, we watched The Bucket try to fool us with his fake magic to show us that he’s evil. He can’t trick us though. BUT THEN, Kyle did a REAL magic trick. So The Bucket changed Kyle’s name to something eviler: J-Cup. But that’s not all, to prove that they were evil, they took our beloved String Bean and made her disappear! Right when Pastor John and Pastor Mark were gearing up for Beach Conference 2019, these bad guys come in and say they’re going to destroy the camp. But we know that our youth pastors can stop them!!!

During our good ole’ Bible study, we studied Philippians 1, where Paul writes to his beloved friends in the Church at Philippi. We learned that our lives are to be lived for Jesus and His ultimate glory. We do this through how we love others in and outside of the church, in good times or bad times, and ultimately for the proclamation of the gospel. Our life is to proclaim Jesus and that brings true JOY. AMEN!

At Free Time, campers checked out the Camp Store and had some awesome hang times with their counselors!

At Club, the mountain men and granola girls split up to learn about how to find joy in purity.

Finally, we finished off the day with an intense game of Isolation Island. Campers fought hard to keep their life chips and win the love of the creatures. Congratulations to Shenandoah 2 for coming in 1st place!

We’re having a blast here at the Ridge! We kindly ask for your prayers as we head into the middle of the week. It has been a joy getting to know campers and serve alongside our brothers and sisters. Our prayer is that the gospel would be preached and hearts would be changed for eternity by the grace of our Savior Jesus Christ. Make sure you keep checking back for updates. Thanks for reading!

God Bless,

Ridge Team
