God is ALWAYS with You
August 10 - 16
Hello, families of our amazing House kids!
Camp Sozo and Lil Camp Sozo are at the halfway point and we have had some great feedback from kids, parents, and teachers!
This week we begin studying our new Happy Camper, Moses. He was God's great camp leader! (Leading the Israelites out of Egypt on a 40 year camping trip)
We start with Moses' beginnings: a basket in the Nile. Our truth is, God is with us when we are alone. Even though our kiddos are rarely alone, they can often feel alone. It is important to instill the truth of our ever-present, loving God that is always with them.
Here is this week's scripture:
Exodus 2:1-10 GWT
“A man from Levi’s family married a Levite woman. The woman became pregnant and had a son. She saw how beautiful he was and hid him for three months. When she couldn’t hide him any longer, she took a basket made of papyrus plants and coated it with tar and pitch. She put the baby in it and set it among the papyrus plants near the bank of the Nile River. The baby’s sister stood at a distance to see what would happen to him. While Pharaoh’s daughter came to the Nile to take a bath, her servants walked along the bank of the river. She saw the basket among the papyrus plants and sent her slave girl to get it. Pharaoh’s daughter opened the basket, looked at the baby, and saw it was a boy. He was crying, and she felt sorry for him. She said, “This is one of the Hebrew children.” Then the baby’s sister asked Pharaoh’s daughter, “Should I go and get one of the Hebrew women to nurse the baby for you?” She answered, “Yes!” So the girl brought the baby’s mother. Pharaoh’s daughter said to the woman, “Take this child, nurse him for me, and I will pay you.” She took the child and nursed him. When the child was old enough, she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. Pharaoh’s daughter named him Moses [Pulled Out] and said, “I pulled him out of the water.””
Talk about the dangers that a little baby in a basket might face in a river, and yet God had a plan!
Here are some promises for your campers to remember about God being with them all the time:
