Camp began at 8am this morning with opening songs (pictured) and prayers. The theme for the week is taken from scripture, John 14:6 -- "I am the way and the truth and the life." Our mission team, thanks to their great song arsenal taught to them by Lisa Scata and Kelly Polk from Nativity's Children's Ministry, jumped right in. They taught "This Little Light of Mine" with hand motions and all! The camp is being run by teachers from St. Anne's parochial school, Christ the King, and some camp counselors from outside the community. They are teaching catechism lessons, doing activities and games, and singing songs in both English and Creole. Jeanette is learning the Haitian Creole version of "Head, shoulders, knees and toes" (pictured). Mitch played some soccer in the afternoon with some of the older boys.
