Pacific Coast Camp: Jesus wears Pajamas! LONG POST!!

I am so sorry I did not post the rest of these pictures until now. I got really really sick at camp, and after I came home I got even worse sick... UGH...

So SO worth it though. Camp was, as usual Awesome beyond words. Bro. Scott Kerr ( I learned his name, lol) and Bro. John John Lambeth were so annointed in their preaching. Of course, We also enjoyed Bro. Bohannon ( I am SO sorry I know I am not spelling his name right) in Children's Church!

 When God shut the door on the ark, no one else could get in!

When Gabriel blows that trumpet (although I am not sure God will call him on his cell phone to tell him to do it) The doors will shut, and no one else will get in!

One night, Bro Kerr got down to business and preached such an amazing message- Tears Won't Fix Everything. He spoke about staying pure until marriage, and yes, you can come back after leaving church, but there is always consequences. He spoke so many things that seemed to come straight from my heart! Do not think you need to leave church to go get a testimony!!! You have a testimony already! He spoke about how backslidders find it so hard to share their testimony, and they don't tell you how hard it is to face those consequences, sometimes on a daily basis. (paraphrasing, I know). Man, if he had asked for someone to share their story, and back him up and agree with him right them, I totally would have. It was so heartbreaking to think of someone leaving and having to go through trying to come back or not making it back.

I beg of you, anyone out there that has questions about your faith, seek help!! Anyone that wants more of my testimony: PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me! If you are thinking of walking away, remember: it is a VERY long journey back!!!!

 OK, these girls have some of the BEST voices in Pentecost,

 with a BEAUTIFUL piano player as well. 
Girls- Please think about making a CD, because WOW! 
They sang a song, and sang it better than the group that wrote it!
 Of course, Annointing, and THE NAME of JESUS mean so much, 
but WOW! Seriously! You girls rock!!!
(and their blog is HERE)

Speaking of Awesome, Anointed singing-
What an incredible choir we had this year! Most anointing we have felt in a LONG time!!!  

 Praying in the altars. Beautiful!!! Bro. John John Lambeth preached against sin in the camp! Get it out!!!

Wednesday night after church there was such a beautiful lingering of God's presence in the Altar! 

These precious young people stayed in the Altar all the way until curfew!!!

Poor little guy had allergies SO bad towards the end of the week!! This was during one of the last services...He had an ear infection, and during the night God healed him! He had woken up complaining of it hurting, and we just prayed the name of Jesus! He fell asleep, and the next morning all pain was GONE! When my mom asked him about it the next day he exclaimed, "Jesus wears Pajamas!"
Yes, Baby he sure does!!!

 This wonderful group came all the way from GEORGIA! They raised money for all of their airfare, their Pastor and his wife's airfare, camp registration, etc. What a great addition to our camp! Angelo Alvear's blog is HERE.

Take a Seat Daddy! I'll stand....
I will even push you!!!

One night,  Bentley was sitting in his stroller yelling, and quite honestly I wasn't listening. We were outside, no worries. I tuned in to what he was saying. He was yelling "Sis-TER March-Banks WHERE ARE YOU?" "I need you to come and take my PIC-TURE"
Well, lol. So I took a couple to send to her...

Where did Bentley go? All bundled up in the pile of blankets- sound asleep. Many were jealous! LOL

Arts and Crafts was SO much fun! What a blast we had making things! As you can see Bentley and our security guard got into it as well!!!

 OH, the sadness and the MESS of going home... What a process. See the tent that Will is taking down? That was an answer to prayer for our neighbor. SIX DOLLARS at a thrift shop. She had a tent that was like four feet by 3 feet or something crazy. Like, I think it was a doggie tent or something, not big enough for doing hair, that is for sure!! The first night she had to go put the tent on and go to bed, I think....

Anyways the new/old tent was HUGE! It was bigger than ours! God is SO good to meet ALL our needs!!!

There was bird on top of our mini-van tweeting and tweeting for all he was worth. Then he flew in our tent, and I was tweeting quite loudly!!! Whew! You can not come home with us little birdie!

These people were from Manchester, NH!!! (Not really, but awesome to see my hometown on the side of their trailer!!!)

Mac Donald Glasses... Woot!!!
 SO glad to see BEEPA again! Awwww...

Pacific Coast Camp Picture Toss

I just saw this post didn't publish from yesterday... Sorry guys!!
Here are some pics for ya.... Missed the wiffle ball staff vs. Campers game so I have no pics of that... My phone died right before service so no pics of that...
But please make up your own captions... I am simply too tired...

This was in line for Children's Church to start. What a great, great group of kids!!!

Especially that little guy in front in the blue sweatshirt ;)

This was Lazarus.

More Junior girls...

More Lazarus...
Sorry about the picture quality... Must get better phone camera... One day..

Can you believe I was assigned a security guard to be with me all week at camp? I couldn't believe it!!!! Look at that handsome man!!!

This was Bob. I so wish I had gotten a picture of Bentley's face when he came down the aisle doing clean-up. HI-LA-RI-OUS!!! I wish this was a clearer picture too... but you get the idea...

My security guard again, watching his bike get stolen... And our tent neighbor- Elijah!!

Back of Justin's head and Bob, and the statue of Liberty!

More Bob.

The bridegroom is more special than the best man!

Katy and Xi
Were peas of a pod... Or flocks of a sweater... How does that go??? Lol

I am sorry that the pics were not in order yesterday... Can't fix it without a computer ugh... Look for edits on these post when I get home LOL!!! EDITED NOW! :)

We got set up and found out our job duties and schedules. I am really excited to be working in arts and crafts and with the bank! I am just so happy to be here, I don't mind anything there is to do!!!
The evangilist  at night is from Ohio. I am not sure his name, I will have to update that, but he was so good, so annointed!- Bro. Scott Kerr from Ohio- I am such a dork lol...

He was talking about John the Baptist being the greatest man because he baptized Jesus, but actually we are even better because we are his bride!! (I am not making this as awesome as he did by any means...)

John the Baptist was born with the Holy Ghost, he never spoke in tongues as God gave the utterance, and just like a husband is not thinking of his best man on his wedding day, but his wife-our bridegroom is thinking of his bride!!!
Can't wait for tomorrow!

Pacific Coast Camp Part 1 of 500

"Can we sleep this day?"
Bentley asked me after setting up and we went to get some food. Poor thing... Fun times....

Here's the first round of pics...
I was trying to take pictures of the girls area but some boys hijacked my photos. I don't know their names but they were helpful...

Bentley fell asleep at In and Out...

My mom was tired, but we quickly woke her up with jokes

We were thirsty. That's all.

For now :)
