The sounds of summer have blasted upon the Ranch and we are completely overrun with approximately 160 kiddos a week! Sadly our summer is about to come to a close as we wrap up week number 7 and end with the lil Buckaroos next week. We have had record numbers and are excited to see God working in all the people that come through here.
My summer in the kitchen has been challenging and incredible all in one. God has taught me so many things it would take a book to be able to just start telling everything. I am currently helping head up our crews and packing for all of our wilderness camps and our specialty outdoor meals. It has been a challenge to juggle everything but it is fun trying to keep up.
Something that God has been challenging me on is to be mold able. Every time I become focused on being exhausted or how much work needs to be done etc I fall and become grumpy and angry at life and everything. God has challenged my heart to focus on Him and to rely on Him for His strength. Hebrews 12:1-3 calls us to run the race that God has set before us, looking always to Jesus for our strength and to always remember what He went through so that we might not grow weary in serving Him and gain the riches He has promised us. :) It is incredible! Being exhausted is the best place to be because God is able to work through your weakness!
Stay strong in the Lord and He will give you strength to do what He has called you to do!
