West Central Camp & NEXT Camp
I love going to Bogg Springs! It is where I met my wife! July 9th 1986 was the day I worked up enough courage to go up and speak to her. It is where my oldest child, Taylor Reese Welchman met her future husband. I had no idea that one of my CABBI seminary students, Shawn Welchman, would find out what a great daughter God gave to Karen and I. I just happen to introduce them and BOOM!
In between Church Camp, we managed to squeeze in some babysitting, Vacation Bible School, ABA trips, leading young people to Christ and a World Archery Competition in Tennessee. That was a blast to go and support Alli and the rest of the Hamburg Archery Team.
There are a few more events my family and I were able to share. Taylor had the bright idea for Caleb, myself and her to run a 5K in Little Rock called the Insane Inflatable Race. That was CRAZY, but fun. It was crazy because it was 95 degrees during the race! It was a blast because I am still able to do things like this with them! I know one day I will not be able to keep up anymore, but I figure 70 is still a ways away!! So, until that day comes, I will keep on running and playing on inflatables with my kids!
Well Summer 2015 is almost over and there are still a few more memories to make. I have enjoyed so many awesome summers and they always revolve around serving my Lord and Savior and with my family by my side. God only gives us so many summers. I am 48 years old, so I figure that I am over the halfway mark! I have zero regrets, pedal to the metal, soak it all in, tell everyone about Jesus, get wet, get sweaty, take a nap, hug my kids, take a shower, kiss my wife! Wow! It's been another awesome summer!
