Royal Family Kids Camp
I've just returned from one of the most fun, heart breaking, encouraging, gut wrenching, exciting, tear jerking, rewarding weeks of my life. There is no way I can describe to you how God worked at Royal Family Kids Camp last week. RFKC is a camp for abused foster children. PLEASE check out www.rfkc.org and give of your time or money to a camp near you. If you live in North Texas, I encourage you to go to www.ourfatherschildren.org and contact Darren Edwards at Richland Hills Church of Christ and get involved.
I was blessed to lead worship for chapel everyday for these special kids that have experienced more sickness, hatred and hardship in their 6-11 years on this earth than I will ever know. I've been back in my own bed for three nights now and have dreamed about these precious children every night. Perhaps there will come a time when I can talk or blog about them without crying, but right now I can't imagine it.
I sent them home on Friday with mixed emotions. I missed my girls and was excited to see them, but it was difficult to let go of my camp kids.
They are all unique and beautiful and uniquely beautiful, but I grew especially close to a few. Please pray for my little friends Darien, Robert, Dakota, Michael, Michael and Brandon today. May God work in their lives to nourish the seed planted in their hearts last week.
