Last week was an awesome week. Before the Dare camp, I was helping to edit Like Fish trailer.
The first day of camp was Amazing Race style around Singapore. I was hopping around different groups. I think the kids are very cute and impressionable, even though I only meet them for a while, they remember my name and will always say hi to me for the rest of the camp!
It rained alot in this camp, on the first day afternoon it rained and we had to cancel the afternoon games. The next day, it rained again while they were playing waterbomb, or rather, before they got wet haha. But the activity still continued and everyone had fun being drenched, while the photographers and I have to run for shelter. And then it stopped raining, and the committee thought we can proceed with the next activity in the sea/beach, but it was cat 1. So we started to walk back. Then it stopped, then we walked back to the beach. Then it started to shower. Then we walk back to campsite =(
The nightwalk was pretty good until there was a cat 1 and half of the groups didn’t walk through the confidence walk, in which they had to walk through a muddy path in the forest in pure darkness. pretty fun!
I think Ps Daniel is very nice and talented (since he can preach+sing+compose+dance+many more), and has a heart for the kids. He would encourage them, level by level, during the waterbomb game, so that they will not be demoralised. At the start of the confidence walk, he would encourage each and every single DG and tell them good things, and say that they can do great exploits (Daniel 11:32), and he’d meet everyone on the the side. He’s so edifying. And he wanted to have praise and worship under the stars on the beach, but because of cat1, it was cancelled and we had to have it in the carpark instead. But it was still good.
I proposed to Coach to edit a highlights video on the last day, since there’s no activities in the morning. And so, I managed to edit a 5-minute music video-style montage in 3-4 hours. It was fun! And everyone enjoyed watching it, as they cheered for their friends who featured in the video and laughed at the humorous moments.
I feel very blessed to be able to serve in this camp. Even though I was a videographer, I was still able to impact the kids in a small way. One of them actually came to me and ranted about the camp before a meal. Some of them hugged and say bye to me at the end of the camp after the praise and worship. And they said hi to me again at the extended praise and worship on Saturday.
Ps Daniel sang a few wonderful songs at the end of the praise and worship: When I did nothing at all, Friends are friends forever, and My Heart overflows. It was so nice that he came up to sing again at both extended praise and worship services. It felt like camp all over again!
Showers of blessings = unmerited favour =)
