So camp is over.  All I can say is wow.  I had an amazing time.  The kids were great and I was able to share God and fishing.  It was amazing to me how excited the kids were about God and fishing.  The plan was to take 6 kids out in the boat during the week.  We had a casting competition to see who would go.  Wednesday was the day, later that night Josh the one in charge came to me and said the kids enjoyed it so much we needed to take 6 more out the next day.  So we dew names and 6 more kids got a trip in the boat.
I was amazed at how excited the kids were about the boat.  I only had one kid who got a bass from the boat, but we had about 7 catch them from shore.  It was an amazing week.  I saw kids grow in Christ and I myself also was able to grow.
I just have to say thank you to all of those guys who helped me out by donating lures and rods, and even hats.  So thank you to Shaw Grigsby, Tony Posey, Sam Sagaser, Rodney Howard, Jeremy Burge and Edwin Evers.  I could not have done it without your help.
I am already looking forward to next year.  The coolest thing that happened was when I had a kid tell me he really didn’t like fishing, but after being at camp and me teaching him something he was more excited about fishing.  That one comment made the whole week and all the struggles I had putting the fishing section together worth it.  Man sometimes God blesses you in small ways and that sure was a blessing.
