What is the worst thing that's ever happened to you? Do you remember how you felt? Now think about this: what is the best thing that has ever happened to you? Does the memory bring a smile to your face? It doesn't take away the scar of the prior but does that joyous memory not overshadow it? Ponder that as I explain camp: Royal Family Kid's Camp is for foster kids who have been abused, neglected, and abandoned. It is a week for them to be with adults who are focused on making it the best week of their life. It is a week for them to swim, sing, dance, run, laugh, and so much more. It is a week for them to just be kids. It is a week where they learn just how much Jesus loves and cares about them. A week of joy can make a difference. It did for me.
I went to Royal Family two summers ago and my heart was broken for these children. Child welfare became my passion. I love these kids and I love what God is doing through this camp. Will you join me in making a week that lasts a lifetime?
