Our student body was split between two camps this past week. Most of them helped out at Camp Hensel. Three of them helped out at Camp Ida. Here are some photos from Camp Hensel.
Tim Ayers delivered our devotional this morning. He introduced the lesson with 1 Timothy 3:15. Paul affirms that we are the "pillar and ground of the truth." Tim asked us to consider how we function as such, and said we are the pillar and ground of the truth…
1. …by knowing the truth
2. …by obeying the truth
3. …by loving the truth
4. …by speaking the truth in love
5. …by rightly dividing the truth
6. …by defending the truth
7. …by adorning the doctrine of Christ
This is just the bare outline of what he presented; points you can develop for yourself.
The students completed their 3rd quarter of this year's schooling. Finals have been taken, papers handed in and a neighborhood in Austin was canvassed with door hangers.
