God at work

The Aguilar house if full of people! :) Last night we had 21 people in all sleeping here. Camp starts tomorrow and we are super excited! Tonight is our last night here at the Aguilar house and then we'll be in cabins.

I'm super excited to share with you all some photos but I won't be able to upload them until later this evening. We've built a decorated platform and we have a camp theme. The theme has an Indiana Jones feel to it and the slogan is "Start the adventure."

The group of 9 that came from Word of Life Mexico has been a huge blessing and have contributed their much needed talents and experiences. We couldn't have prepared the platform, decorations, games, etc. with the same quality without their help. Also their love for God is contagious and their enthusiasm to work full of joy sets such an example.

We are often low on sleep, under pressure to finish things on time, and taking few breaks, but it's such a time of growth and depending on God for strength and the challenge to always love your brother no matter how tired you are or how much pressure you are under. I must say that the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control have been evident in the lives of those around me and when there are 21 people in a house that's a miraculous thing. :)

Well, I hope to post some pictures this evening and let you see some of what we are doing! Please pray for these weeks of camp and that many would put their faith in Jesus.
