Monday night service started off late since our arrival was delayed due to overheating problems with the bus.
However, that did not delay the moving of the Lord on the youth camp. There was a move towards the altars in the middle of doing service and the presence of the Lord swept through the place. I myself received a renewal in my spirit and prayed for a week of change of consecration for these teens.
The next day I made the mistake of brushing my teeth with the faucet water, forgetting that we weren't using safe water. Rhoda did the Anne thing and by the morning service we were miserable. That happened to be the morning I was told that I would be teaching my lesson on "conduct" for the girls but also would be teaching the drama class. I had brought along some skits for the camp but not with the knowledge that I was to teach them how to perform it (in Spanish) and have it practiced within 45 minutes. Phew!
That threw me for a loop but I've learned to take on challenges and do the best that I can. We did a silent skit called, "Do Not Touch!" on Tuesday and "A Cloud of Witnesses" on Wednesday. There were quite a few good actors and they did a great job performing them.
After service we went on to teach the Bible classes. Luke Shuecraft was teaching the boys on Tuesday & Wednesday. I was scheduled to teach on Tuesday while Britney Chan had Wednesday. I've never felt so ill-equipped and unprepared for an event such as this. Finding out about teaching drama along with the sickness due to the water made me feel add if I stumbled all throughout the Bible lesson. I had studied it in English and Spanish but it wasn't flowing through my mouth so great in Spanish. Halfway through I asked Tabitha to help me so that I could have a better connection with the girls by eye contact.
They were given a handout to follow along with the lesson and answer questions about their own character so I'm praying that even with my failure God can still speak to then through His Word.
