The following is from our member Steven Stinson, who is serving as our missionary at MountainTOP this summer.
I hope everyone is doing well. After finishing the first week I was not expecting to be this tired, but a lot of great things were accomplished. Overall we were able to work with 32 Day Camp kids(our goal was 70 for the whole summer, so this was really great), finished a shingle roof and a tin roof. Everyone worked really hard, and if this is the pace we set for week one I can’t wait to see what we will do with the rest of the summer.
As for me, I was lucky enough to do a little bit of everything. On Tuesday and Wednesday I went out with the service project groups to take some photos and videos and I ended up helping with the roofs more than taking pictures. Thursday was my staff’s day to lead the in-camp programming. We ran breakfast, dinner, and worship that night. It went really well, and I couldn’t be more proud of my staff for their creativity and dedication to service and God.
Friday was probably my favorite day of the week because I got to shadow our Day Camp program for the day. It was cool seeing how such a changed program could still have such a large impact on all of the kids. After helping them out I went out to one of the worksites to help set up some handrails, and then wrapped it up by running a worship for my staff that night, I helped run every part of the ministry and it was really, really fun;
So that’s what is going on at the Mountain Top. Thanks again for your support. If you have any questions or want to chat, you can call. text or email me and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
