God Always Has a Purpose

A word of testimony from one of our counselors this past summer. I arrived during the second week of camp to be a counselor. That week was a struggle for me as I was overwhelmed with being a first time counselor and I was trying to be the best at it (which was impossible). I was so caught up in …
