baseball camp: days 3, 4, & 5

the last few days at baseball camp were bittersweet. we starting missing the kids as soon as they left. it was sad to think that i might not see some of them again in this life. but, i was happy to spend the few days with them and get to know them all better. our group had the best personalities! they would bring the biggest smile to my face. especially when they all would shout, "CHANEL!! I LOVE YOU!". haha! a little embarrassing but mostly just the sweetest thing ever. oh i miss them!

on the second to last day, i got to share with the kids during our bible time. the theme for the day was love and sacrifice. after i shared a little story, i got to read the kids a few verses. 1 john 3:16: "16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters." and 1 john 4:9-10: "This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." it was so awesome getting to share with them! they seemed really into it, so i'm just praying that God will continue to remind them how much He loves them.

the last day ended with a water fight. well, only between me and the kids. it was great! as you can see in one of the pictures above, they got me completely soaked. it was fine by me since it was so stinking hot that day! and at the very end of camp the kids asked all of us for our autographs. seriously, the cutest. i love them! i am so happy that God had us here in cluj to be apart of this camp. i had the best time!
