Podcast 53: Five Bible Passages About Friendship

This is probably one of our most requested topics: friendship. Today, we’ll look at five passages in the Bible that teach us something about friendship. They are certainly not the only passages, and some might be surprising! But if this episode is helpful, we’ll plan on doing more on this topic in the future.

We mention a telecast (though we accidentally called it a sermon) and related article by Mr. Ames in the podcast, and those are linked to here. Below that, you’ll find the podcast, as usual, on all the usual platforms. And, by the way—if you have a favorite podcast platform that we aren’t on yet, feel free to let us know, and we’ll be happy to look into it!

Preteen Camps 2022: Missouri Preteen Camp Photos

From July 31 through August 5, the Lake of the Ozarks State Park hosted the Missouri Preteen camp. Campers enjoyed a variety of activities including archery, crafts, flag football, Gaga Ball (it’s everywhere!), music class, riflery and others. There were multiple games designed to help campers cool off in the heat, including a water relay race and human bowling! A STEM activity and talent show were also enjoyed by all. Enjoy the photos!

Preteen Camps 2022: Texas Preteen Camp Photos

Camp isn’t just for teens! The Texas Preteen Camp ran from July 25 to 29. Preteen campers enjoyed daily activities like archery, paddle boarding, Gaga Ball (of course!), Derby Car building, swimming, and Christian Living. A great time was had by all, and our thanks to all who made the Texas Preteen Camp happen this year! We hope you enjoy these pictures, and we plan to post more soon from additional Living Youth preteen camps that took place around the country this year, so stay tuned.

Podcast: Behind Camp with Mr. Weston & Mr. McNair!

As tired as they may have been, Mr. Gerald Weston and Mr. Jonathan McNair were willing to sit down with us only a couple of days after returning from the 2022 LYP Texas Teen Camp and to talk about the experience, including the kinds of things they seek to achieve at our camps and how to get the most out of them. We hope you enjoy it! The YouTube version is below, and the Spotify link is right below that.

Teen Camp 2022: One more post of pics—the talent show, Sabbath services, and dorms ready for the banquet and dance!

We’re back for one more post! We apologize for the delay—after the last Sabbath at camp, things went so quickly and we were so busy that posting photos had to take second place. But now that everyone is back, safe and sound, it’s time for one more post of pics! These final pictures feature campers entertaining their camp-mates at the talent show, some photos from the last Sabbath service, and pictures of the dorms, all gussied up for the final banquet and dance. This year’s camp was a blast, and we pray that everyone—both campers and staff—arrived home with minds filled with good memories, uplifting lessons, and thoughts of their new friends. Our thanks to all who made this year’s camp a success, and God willing we’ll see you in 2023!

Teen Camp 2022: Some photos from last Sabbath!

Last week at this time, everyone was very ready for the weekly break God provides—just like they are this afternoon, as well! Please enjoy these pictures of campers and staff from last Sabbath, and—from the Texas LYP Teen Camp to all of you—have a wonderful Sabbath! Pictures will resume after the Sabbath—tomorrow night if possible.

Teen Camp 2022: 2G enters the chat! Plus, pics of 1B & 3G at Topics & Dance, and more water skiing!

How hot is it in Texas this year? As 2G explains in their video below, they are like “potatoes cooking in a pot!” That’s hot! But God blessed the camp with some rain today, which has cooled things off a bit as the Sabbath approaches. In the meantime, after the video, enjoy pics from 1B & 3G at Table Topics & Dance and more pics of waterskiers during Evening Activities.
