Blog Post: "Words from Ben" – Celebrate Amigo
I had such a blast at Celebrate Amigo this weekend! First off, it was awesome to spend time with some summer staffers that came up to enjoy the weekend. I look forward to maybe seeing them again this winter and sharing more stories and memories from the summer. I also had the privilege of helping to set up the Amazing Race: Amigo Style. It was a fun activity that had the participants running around camp with big smiles on their face. Faith had the racers drawing in pudding, Robin got people hard at work with some donut decorating and Cheryl and Bob kept a cozy campfire going down by the lake. I was very happy with how the race turned out and had such a great time getting it all together. One of the many highlight of the weekend was the benefit auction on Sat. night. What a rush! It was so exciting to see all the generous donations to this special place, and the auctioneer had the crowd rolling in laughter.
All in all it seemed to be a very successful weekend. I really enjoyed being a part of it because it reminded me of how amazing a place like Amigo is. Also, with the help of Ross's profound words in his sermon on Sunday morning, I was reminded that the work of God is astonishing, and for me, Amigo has become a spot where I am reminded of that.
Hope yall are enjoying the chilly weather, God bless and take it easy!
