Every year we take a group from our church plant in Kabinburi to the family camp on Jomtien Beach, Pattaya organized by the Romphrakhun Fellowship of Baptist Churches held annually on the last week of April or first week of May. We had the biggest group from Kabinburi so far, 21 of us in all. Our co-worker, Jenni Starkey's van broke down as we were entering Pattaya City. During camp we had to pack all of those 21 people in our 11-passenger van to travel between our hotel and the camp site. Imagine the looks we got from people every time we got in and out of that van!
Every year we have been involved at camp in some way - giving lectures or helping in music. We were not asked to do anything this year so we volunteered to help in one of the children's classes. Ha! You know, sometimes when you volunteer, you end up being asked to do the whole thing. We taught the 4th-6th grade class and it was a BLAST! Jenni Starkey taught the Bible lessons; Ed led the games; Darlene did music, memory verses, and crafts. We were thankful for Pastor Ang and Orn, and Mae Sanit for their help. We had five sessions in three days: three hours in the mornings and two hours in the evenings. It was a fun fully-packed camp and the kids had fun. Boy, we wore them out! And yeah, we wore ourselves out too!
