Camp Lakewood's Meet-And-Greet Monday!
Here I am with day-campers during our first day of Camp Lakewood worship.
Our first day of Camp Lakewood was truly a blessing. We had two kids, T and S, ages fifteen and thirteen. T's great-grandpa, Jerry, came with T. He was a tremendous help...and I think he had as much fun as the kids!
The theme was "Seeing and Being God's Light". We talked about how God's Light is love, and we talked about prayer. We had a worship time with prayer and music (including brailed lyrics). Miss Marti came to help out with her gift of telling interactive Bible stories. We did a fast-forward thru the Old Testament up to Joshua. We talked about Rahab and how she helped God's spies, the Israelites. The kids got to be the spies and hide while Rahab chased away the soldiers who were searching for them. We went for a walk around the neighborhood, allowing the kids to work on their cane skills, then we had lunch. Miss Audrey grilled hotdogs for us. The day-campers helped me fix the rest of the food while I taught them our table prayer, which we sang.
After lunch, we made "Romans 8:28 ice cream in a bag", to illustrate God making "all things work together for Good". We played a game of Uno, then we closed in prayer.

A Little About Me
- Laurel Jean
- God continues to bless me with a busy and fulfilling life. Even after thirty-plus years, my music and ministry keep going and growing. Blind from birth, I am n avid user of Braille and the long, white cane, in addition to a variety of mainstream and access technology. While my blindness does not define me, I consider it to be a unique gift from God. With this gift comes my opportunity to serve as an advocate on behalf of my fellow members of the Blindness community, living and serving among blind and sighted folks of all ages, on all walks of life.
