"The first year Gracie came to camp I was on support staff," shared Katelyn. "I observed her crying every night and longing to be home. Gracie did have fun that week but lacked the skills to handle the sadness and waves of homesickness. She reminded me of myself at that age."

The next year Katelyn was a cabin counselor and Gracie was assigned to her cabin. "I believe God put Gracie in my cabin for a special connection. I talked to her parents when they dropped her off for advice on how to help her have a good time. I worked at setting expectations with Gracie to let her know she was safe and to help her develop skills."

"Every night in the cabin, I led a devotion and read a story for all my campers.  Then I went to each girl and prayed with them, and over them, thanking God for them. I spent extra time praying with Gracie, praying for peace and gratitude for her."

That week Gracie prayed on her own, modeling the example Katelyn gave her. She was also in charge of carrying the cabin mascots, two stuffed animals. This gave her purpose and responsibility. She was encouraged to express her needs.

Katelyn shared with her that what she is feeling is ok and the young adults around her would help work through it together. "I have a heart for meeting children where they are, helping them work through what they are feeling. God is so present in spaces like camp. I cherish the experiences to pour God’s love into children. God is growing a child, growing all of us"

You can impact more people than you can imagine by supporting our ministry and working with our ministry partners. Help someone change their life through a loving Christian community. Please consider a meaningful gift to support the ongoing work of LOMIK Camps to provide a safe environment for children, like Gracie, to grow in faith, strengthening her identity as a child of God.
