but they couldn't make it. It was a full camp! Just to let you know, I didn't get many pictures of us.
The speaker, Doug Miller-whoa! He was great. When I first heard what he'd be talking about
during the weekend, End Times Prophecies, I wasn't very enthusiastic (it's not one of my favorite subjects
to talk about). But after the last message on Monday morning, it helped me see it in
a different light, and also now I feel better about it. One minute he had you laughing,
but the next minute, he gave "that look" and the tone that demanded your
attention. We were able to meet some new people. We had a good time, just that
it was so hot!

a little help from Annah and even little Dale, guess who won? That's right.

Okay, there's a story behind the above photo. Sunday, when Doug
Miller was speaking, he was told he had until 11:15, 15 minutes
before lunch, but he thought they were kidding and got carried
away in his message. Of course, they let him do it. After several
minutes, he asked how they were doing on time, and Sonny
said lunch was at 12:30. Doug asked what time it was.
Someone shouted out 12:25! I wish I could've gotten a picture
to show the expression on Mr. Miller's face!
|Sunday afternoon the gym was full of activity, as usual.|

|Speed volleyball was a little more pressuring though!|
I was told by one of the men on my team mates Monday morning
that we won-won the volleyball tournament! Wow! The
director didn't mention it, but who cares! I was finally on a
winning tea, for a change. No criticism of anyone but
myself. There's just one thing: I played and played
with my team, but they played the final game after I
went to bed! The Lord helped us, and two of the players
on my team are very good at volleyball, so it's not for any credit due
to me! I'm not too good at volleyball, but I do like playing it,
have ever since I was younger.
