The kids came from the NAOMI House and Hope Cottage. The volunteer mentors came from NAOMI, Church for The Nations Flagstaff, Compassion Ministries, and Youth With A Purpose. We also had some trans portion of supplies from the Sunshine Rescue Mission.
The youngsters caught some decent size fish and even caught crawfish while fishing with pieces of hotdogs! Marvin and Teresa from Compassion Ministries cooked up an unbelievable assortment of delicious food. We cooked s’mores over a homemade propane fireplace.
Our Bible study was a fish story of course! We discussed John 21 where Jesus cooks fish for his homeboys who walked out on Him in His time of need. Jesus didn’t hold grudges and neither should we. He cooked them a fish breakfast and helped them catch 153 fish!
All the guys want to do Fish Camp again - it was a resounding success! As a Youth Director and Youth Leader for over 30 years, I’ve never had such a well behaved group of kids. We really admire the staff and leaders at the NAOMI House. They love kids the way Jesus does!
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody. Jesus loves you and so do we.
