The Call 2008

We were near the front of the stage.

On Saturday, November 2, we attended The Call together with my family and with thousands of other Christians to pray for the state of California. I experienced the presence of God as we prayed for mercy for California and our nation. We prayed, cried, sang and danced before the Lord.

We were in a huge baseball stadium. It was hot, but it didn't bother us because we were in God's presence. Even my little brother prayed and then he laid down and rested on the floor mats.

I liked hearing the stories of people whose lives were changed because their family was praying for them.

CFS (Christian Family Schools) Family Camp

Me, enjoying some camp "junk food."

My Dad and my brother set up our two room tent.

Hi , I just went to a family camp two weeks ago! It was very fun. There were many Christian home school families who went. My Dad's friend named Jake Simpson was the leader of the camp. There was a ventriloquist show, rock climbing, and even a lady who showed people how to square dance.
A man named Little Bear Wheeler was the speaker. He taught about the pilgrims and how they came to America. He told stories about their sacrifices for their children. He talked about Squanto, his life and how he was a big blessing to the pilgrims. I knew some of the stories because we studied them last year in school. I liked listening to all of Little Bear's stories. They were very interesting and some were sad. He knew so many things about how the Indians lived in America before the pilgrims came.
This was my second time going to this camp. My brother and I prayed we would be able to go this year and God answered our prayers. Here are some pictures. I hope you enjoy them.
