Camp update

All is going well! We're having a great time, and there have been about 50 children each day. Some are from church and the rest are from the neighborhood around the church.

Two stories:
On the first day a grandmother and her very little granddaughter just happened to be walking by and came in to see what was going on. They stayed for the Bible time and music, and then left. Later in the day, they reappeared for the craft lesson and seemed to be having a wonderful time. The babushka approached me, and said, "I really, really regret bringing my granddaughter here!" Of course, I thought, "Oh, no! What have we done wrong?" and I asked her why. "Because now I can't get any peace at all! I just meant to stop here for a few minutes, and then go home. We went home, and she wouldn't stop crying. She kept telling me that she had to go back to where everyone sings so beautifully."

On the way home today, Jaan wanted to know why camp is only for five days. And then he said, "When I grow up, I'm going to be a leader and have a camp that goes for TEN DAYS!"
