Here we are, it is finally the first day of Day Camp! What a blessing it is to be here. After long days of traveling, the American team is so excited to be here. Yesterday we spent the day preparing our classrooms, meeting our host families, and spending time with the Polish counselors. We have only been here one day and I already feel the blessings and presence of Jesus here in Jastrzębie. It is simply a miracle how easy it seems for people from two different countries, who speak two different languages to become friends so quickly. It is my 4th year here at day camp, the last time I was here was 3 years ago, and I am still blown away by the love the American team feels the first day we are here and the rest of the week. I cannot wait to see what God will do through day camp this year. I just taught my first English lesson of the day and I am overwhelmed by the kids willingness to learn and participate. It has been a long time waiting to be reunited with my Polish friends, preparing lessons, and planning games and crafts. As the Lord rejoices in the fellowship of his people this week, we rejoice in the blessings He has given us.
