Each year at Camp Gilgal, all the campers memorize verses from the Bible. The teen campers have a shorter passage than the junior campers, however, they have two weeks of camp and we only have one. This year, our passage was Philippians 2:5-11. It basically states that Yeshua, our Lord, came to Earth to save us, by dying on a cross. It also said that every knee will bow down before the Lord in the end times. I still remember the old memory verses from junior camp. They will always be in my heart, and I use them when I need comfort.
This morning, our director, Red Sox, announced that 7 boys already memorized the Bible verses! So, during pool time, a group of girls sat down and started to read the passage over and over again. It was pretty chaotic but we were getting it. We all learned our verses in less than 30 minutes! As I am writing this, there are 6 girls and 8 boys who know the passage, but I am positive that we will catch up to them.
