Where’s Kyle: Camp Diaries #2

Posted by jon on June 24, 2009 in not so deep thoughts |

Ok so they got me. Yesterday while we were still in transit to camp they got me. When you are a youth minister there are certain things you understand. You are often times thought of as the oldest member of the youth group, there will be some people who never understand what you do or why you do and last but not least you will be pranked. Today I will address the last of these.  We stopped for lunch and as you would expect, when lunch was over we headed back up in the van. We loaded the van and pickup that we had with us and headed on guide by my trusty VZ Navigator (cheap plug). We made it about 10 min down the road when I realized that one of our kids was not with us. After some simple detective work we found that he had gone back into the restaurant to use the bathroom. So we pulled over and I moved from the bus to our truck so we could go back for our lost little one. With frustration rising I went into deep in prayer pleading for the strength not to kill the student in question. As we began our journey back their trap was sprung and I found my missing student hiding in the back of the truck waiting to surprise me. I’m not sure how far down the road they would have let us go but I will confess that was a pretty good prank. It did remind me of the one of the basic of youth ministry, the pre-departure head count.

Also today, in worship, the Lord moved in many students. There were many who came to know Christ for the 1st time, and in our group several who wanted to take another step in their faith. It is very exciting to see God work and students respond. The band has been great and speaker has been very challenging. I look forward to worshiping with them the rest of the week.
