Camp Teams

Kristie has been home for almost a week now and is leaving Saturday morning at 4am.
She got on Camp Teams this year for Ozark Christian and is having a blast.  She called me 2 weeks into her summer to talk to me about something that happened at camp.
Being her mom I could not be prouder of the women of God she is becoming.  When she called to tell me her story it made me smile and thank God for all He is doing in her life.

The Story:  While at one of the christian camps Kristie was approached by an adult leader after lunch.  She had noticed that he had been talking to one of the high schoolers since the worship set that her and one of her teams lead in the morning and wondered if the boy was ok.  As the leader begin to speak, Kristie begin feeling incredible guilty and wonder if a choice she made when she woke up had lead someone down a wrong path.
You see Kristie is very modest in her dress and always thinks about what she wears.  It had been incredibly hot and Kristie had decided, even though it was against her first  judgement, to wear shorts that day.
The adult approached her and begin asking her questions.  One of the questions was "has she ever been in a situation where she had lead someone without even using words."
Kristie remembered this leader talking to this High Schooler and immediately thought of the shorts.  Her mind went straight to what she was wearing.  She was upset that she thought she had lead a boy's thinking down the wrong path because of what she wore to worship that day, shorts.

Well, to make a long story short.  The adult let Kristie know that this boy was being baptized because as he told the leader.....when he watched Kristie worship he saw something in her that he wanted.  Kristie loves Jesus more than anything else and that boy could see it, and he wanted what she had, Jesus.
How Awesome Is That!!!!
Love that Story
Kristie was so excited to tell me that this boy was being baptized.  She was not bragging or puffing herself up but was telling me because she was so excited that this boy had excepted Christ.

I'm so proud of my baby girl.  Kristie Lynn you rock.
Below is a pic of the boy getting baptized.  He wore a Ozark shirt to do it in :)
