During our last week at Bird River Bible Camp, excitement for the coming Thanksgiving weekend and for our travels that would follow was very apparent! But before it was time for turkey and stuffing, we had plenty to do yet at the camp we had come to call home. We were honored to have Gavin Hall join us this week to teach us about Theology. Now I’m going to be honest, with a title like Theology I wasn’t sure how interesting these classes could be. But contrary to the appeal of its title, Theology turned out to be extremely interesting and Gavin had the attention of the entire class. He gave us things to think about, form opinions about, and also just challenged us in our walk with God and journey through scripture. After going deeper into the subject and actually learning what Theology was, I came out with a new appreciation for it and a greater curiosity to read and study the bible.

Other than classes, our evenings held lots of entertaining and exciting things. For one, we had our first meeting of small groups! Well, second I guess if you count our meeting when we were all blind and belting out animal noises as seen previously on our blog--one of our brightest moments! But we spent an evening playing games and getting to know our small groups, and I would just like to put out there that my small group set an Outtatown record- our first meeting was about 5 hours! Another day we had a themed supper where we all had to find our twin (or for some, triplets and quadruplets). We had our ginger triplets (the “tringers”), and lumberjack triplets who blessed us with lovely songs. We had N’sync dance moves, gender switches, old grannies, beach babes, and also members of the Twins baseball team made an appearance! I was very impressed with our effort! Well done guys, well done.
