Guess who's posting?!?!?

That's right...I'm typing a post! I know, I know, I'm shocking myself. But, Bro. Tim told me that I needed to put a post on here, so this post is for you Bro. Tim. :oP I am excited today because a friend of mine was saved last night!!! It was someone I would have never have guessed to be lost, this girl was faithful to church, sang in the choir, and was an example to the girls in the youth group. It was a shock to me. That just lets you know that you never know how many people around you are lost. That is why it is so important to have a godly testimony and live a godly life, you never know who is lost around you. There were a total of three saved in the youth last night!

We have been kinda busy over the last couple of weeks, and it isn't showing signs of slowing down anytime in the near future. This Saturday we have a baby shower for my Aunt, and our church has a singing this Saturday night with the McKamey's and the choir will be singing. I am really looking forward to it. Then this Sunday is Homecoming at the church...there will be dinner on the grounds and tons of fellowship.

Next week is Faith Baptist Camp's August meeting and as of right now we will not be able to attend. This will be the first August meeting that we have missed..normally we get to make it at least a couple of days, but it's not looking like we will be able to do that. I am going to hate missing it, but I know that God knows what He is doing, and that He has a reason why we aren't going to make it.

Well.....God is good, His grace is plenteous, and His love is everlasting!!! Everyone have a good weekend!!

Back from Youth Camp!

I had an awesome week at the youth camp! I rode to the camp with White Oak Springs Baptist Church, they were nice enough to let me ride their bus! :o) Anyway, the preaching was great!!! We got there Monday about lunch time and left Friday about the same time. The preaching was done by Bro. Wayne Owenby, Bro. Rick Simpson, Bro. Ballew, and Bro. Stacy Pearcy. The messages were right on target all week. It was a blessing! Here are some pictures of the week.

These are some girls that I rode on the church bus with.
Kimmy, Brook, Angel, and Leah.

Matt and Colby.
"I wonder what Matt is thinking about?? Hmm..."
Colby looks bored...bless his heart!

My Buddy, Daniel.
This was the first time I had seen him in 5 or 6 years.
"Doesn't he look cool."

Bro. Ballew.
He was preaching his message on "Keeping a good thing a good thing".
It was AWESOME!!!

Bro. Duane Moore.
The Moderator of the camp.

Matt having fun with a towel!

Me and Brook.

Matt posing for a Coke commercial...he did a good job, didn't he?!

Me and my friend Kelly.
It was the first time I had been able to see her in about 5 years.

Matt and I.
The picture quality isn't that great...sorry!

And last but not least...Matt balancing his Coke can on the picnic table.
I still don't know how he did that!!!

I hope you enjoyed seeing what some of my week was was so full of laughing and I have tons of stories to tell!! I guess I could share one with you now. is goes.

I had gone ALL week without anything embarrassing happening to me. I knew that something was going to happen before I was to leave to go home. Well...Thursday it was time to break for lunch and I saw Kelly and Matt about 15 to 20 feet away from me. I wanted to scare I started to run so I could grab her by the shoulders and give her a good scare. I ran and I did grab her by the shoulders, but she turned sideways and when she turned sideways it cause me to turn with her. That would have been okay had I not still been running! Well...I FELL!!! Everyone laughed so hard!!! There were about 30 to 40 teenagers that saw me fall. Once we all gain our composure Matt turned and looked at me and simply asked "Did you have a nice trip?". So I had my embarrassing moment of the week! Oh me...what a week!!!
