Camp has had a huge impact on me this summer. I have seen God working in my life as well as the campers and staff’s lives. This, being my 4tth year working at Monarch, I have noticed a huge change in myself in my confidence. Having conversations with the other staff members has encouraged me to strengthen my faith and to draw closer to God. Working at camp has taught me many valuable lessons about trusting in God and having complete faith in Him. Seeing Him answer prayers in my life this summer has really touched me. To add, my position as Music Director has also impacted me greatly this summer. While leading songs, I often take breaks and mouth the words. During this time hearing the children singing boldly touches me deeply and I remember the innocence and boldness children possess. Like it says in Matthew 19:14, “Let the little children come to Me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” I am so thankful for the opportunity to work at camp, it has made all of the difference in my life.
