Contenders for the Faith Camp Out
My husband has enjoyed getting together once a month with a great group of little men. They are learning skills that have become extinct to most young men. They are learning to be contenders for their faith. They are learning to be leaders for their future families.
This weekend they celebrated their first “official” year of the Contenders for the Faith group by having a camp out at our home followed by a hike through the woods of our property. They ate dinner over the open fire and stayed up till midnight playing flashlight battles. They then got up bright and early at 5:30 for a breakfast of pancakes and biscuit rolls cooked over the fire. Hiking through the woods followed after another battle with guns and swords. What an amazing weekend for the boys (and for that matter the Dads.)
