We had an amazing CTO Parent/Child First Hunt weekend, where 4 young men and 2 young ladies, from ages 9 to 11 years old, were able to harvest their very first deer. All one shot, one kill harvests, using the CTO Shot Placement method.
The rain and cold didn't keep these kids away and God definitely blessed us with seeing lots of deer. We prayed for breaks in the rain, to be successful, to take straight shots and for safety, and man did HE answer! Smiles from ear to ear, and memories that will never be forgotten.
Our campfire theme for the weekend was identifying our struggles, and what the outcome looks like in our own strength. And then identifying what our struggles look like through Christ.
Fear, shame, guilt, these are substances of the enemy, and not of the Lord.
Our Lord gives us the power and authority to overcome, conquer, all things through Him. James said, consider it pure joy when we face trials and temptations because this builds or Faith and perseverance.
We are all going to face struggles in life that can sometimes make us feel small. But when we put God first and ask for His help, our struggles begin to look small, and allow us to walk in His power and authority, Walking Like GIANTS!
Thank you Lord for this blessing, allowing these kids and their parents to experience your creation and your word!
