This summer, I am working at my local YMCA as a summer day camp counselor. This means, I am working with 1st & 2nd graders, 5 days a week, planning fun activities and exploring the places around us. I love my job, the kids, and my coworkers.
“Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today; to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.”
This was the quote that a little boy in Sri Lanka was able to communicate to me without knowing barely any English. He read the whole chapter of Deuteronomy 28 in Sinhalese to me, and then asked me to read it back to him in English. He didn’t understand anything I was saying, and I didn’t know anything he was saying. But because we had our Bibles, we were able to communicate with each other and share this bonding moment over the Lord. During this time, a lot of boys came over to us to listen as well. It was one of the most powerful and incredible moments I have experienced.
