God is at work--Day 2 CentriKid

So today was a glorious day here at camp. Today the kids were put into track times. These are times that they were able to pick that might have included water, sports, and or plain fun. Some are doing babysitting. Some are playing games. But each kid came back saying that was their favorite part.

A common theme today has been lost and found. Kids are losing small parts of their money or BIG parts...but it is alright and hopefully those things will be worked out. Also we've picked up somethings from the lost and found that we've left. Overall...the kids are kids and that's alright...they'll grow up and be forgetful like me!

Also today God ushered someone new into His kingdom. Paige, one of our girls, accepted Christ tonight at the end of worship. God is so good! This trip has been worth every penny spent. Watch the video below...check out what the kids are doing and see Paige's joy at the's the best 5 minutes you'll spend today.

CentriKid Day 1

So we are Here at Mississippi College. The kids are nestled warm snug in their beds...while visions of Swimming...Rocking Out...and Kicking a Ball dance in their heads.

Seriously, we made it and the kids are having a good time. We traveled from West Monroe to Clinton and arrived early. The kids got registered and we then went on an adventure to eat lunch. We were going to go to CiCi's Pizza which was about 15 minutes from campus. 55 minutes later we finally found the CiCi's and had a great lunch. The kids were great.

We have had Opening Celebration, a Bible Study time, and a Party. It was lots of fun. This is high energy stuff. If I could compare it to anything it would be a conglomerate of Hannah Montana, iCarly, old school Mickey Mouse Club (as in the era of Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears...early/mid 90s)...and Jesus-centeredness. It's really really well put together and the kids are crazy. Tomorrow they'll find out what fun activities they'll be doing, having more Bible Study, having a ton of fun in recreation, and having worship. Excited to see what will happen.

God is up to something....there were spiritual conversations on the bus before we got we'll see what happens. Enjoy some pictures and check out the video on the bottom.

So we'll be heading home in a bit. We have morning Bible Study and closing Celebration. It'll be a great way to end a great week. Pray for our journey home.

God is working in our students lives this week. He is convicting them of their sin and they are working through turning that over to Him and repenting. It is really great and cool to see that. I am excited to be here as are the students. Friday is the last day on site and so we have challenged the students to "go big or go home..."

We do a daily time in our Church Group Devotions in which we allow students to tell some funny things that happen. Well....Here's this video and some great dance moves by Tami Mattingly.

What a great day. God is doing some great things. Students are beginning to be broken in worship, and they're also telling some great stories. We had a great time in Downtown Nashville. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory and Laser Quest. Fun times. Virginia Dominated. I (Brandon) got 9th...not so good.

We're talking about obedience in Bible Study. It's been incredible. Everything is's an update!

Awesome Last Full Day!

God did some awesome things today.  The Gospel was shared, and people responded.  We have students that are responding to God's calling on their life.  Here is one example:

Awesome time tonight in our Church Group Devotions.  It is such an encouragement to me to hear the things that God is doing.  I look forward to the time where we get together and reflect and respond to the day.  Also today was MEGA RELAY.  It is one of the highlights of Camp.  My team the Revolution won easily.  Brandon J and I dominated the camp.  It was fun.

We have had a blast.  Please pray for our safe travels tomorrow.  Kermit (aka Kermie) and I will be driving.  God is so good to us.  Thanks for your prayers.


What an amazing day.  We went to ministry site.  We saw God move.  We saw brokenness.  We worshipped.  We played.  We sang.  We built.  We did all sorts of things.  We served.  God is good.  Please pray for our last day of site.  As a treat yesterday we went to dinner in Nashville and played Laser Tag.  The kids had a great time.  Here they are saying hello to you all.

This building is just funny in Nashville.

What is important is the things God is doing on our ministry sites.  Brandon J and I went to a group home called My Friends House.  It was a great time of witnessing to boys who needed Jesus.  This week is the last week that FUGE will be going there so we stopped and prayed on way back to camp yesterday for the things that God is doing there and will continue to do for the boys there.
