Reading: Judges 1: 1-18
We had gotten our group of second grade campers together to go over the rules for their week of camp. It was Sunday and the kids had just arrived for this new experience. As we were explaining how they should not run in the village, and they needed to wear their shoes at all times, one of our campers raised his hand. Thinking he had a question, I called on him. He proceeded to tell me that a relative of his (I believe it was his uncle) had been in an airplane. Someone fired a gun in the air, the bullet went into the airplane and cut off his toe. To top it off, he now wore the toe in a vial jar around his neck.
My co-counselor and I were stunned. It was all we could do to keep from laughing. We composed ourselves and proceeded to finish telling our campers the rules. To this day, we still tell this story and laugh hysterically. Out of the mouths of babes..... --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
