Hunger to Hope in One Generation: Women Beading for God, Pt. 6

I hope you all enjoyed learning about Antwanae and T-Alto.  I hope even more that you clicked on their link and donated to their being able to join the team this summer in Honduras.  If you haven't, it's not too late.  Caden Camp did, and now she wants to share her story too!
Hi Everybody,


Praying for Peace and Progress
This is Caden Camp from Camp’s Therapuetic Massage.  Michael asked me to write a little something about myself and why I have joined the “Río de Agua Viva” team.  As much as I don’t like writing about myself, I would do anything for my Cousin Michael!  So here we go … I hope you like it!
I have been going down to Honduras with my dad and other family members for almost 13 years.  For most of that time, I have lived in California, and I have used our trips primarily to spend with family.  Last year I moved back to Alabama and get plenty of family time..HA!!  After moving back, I joined the annual AHMEN International Medical Seminar team in August and made so many friends on that team!  I always return wanting to go back, but this year is a little different. 

This year I have been training under the tutelage of both my dad, Dr. Tom Camp, and my cousin, Michael Franklin.  Being a part of the “behind the scenes” planning for this team has been really neat.  I really had no idea how much planning there is in taking a mission team out of the country.  LOL!  Dad and Michael, and our other team leaders in training (Tito, T-Alto, and David Jones), and I constantly make phone calls, check on fundraising, collect team info for airline tickets, and make sure everyone is working on their projects.  It has not only been a great way to stay in touch with the team but a fun way of making sure this ship sails for the long haul!

I also look forward to this team because it is going to be an entirely new experience.  “Río de Agua Viva” is a 100% educational team.  I absolutely loved teaching massage therapy to the ASI-Cusuna Community Agents, and I can’t wait to do the same with those of ASI-Belaire.  I’m also really impressed with the group of teenagers on our team.  They will be leading our VBS component for the kids of the jewelry making laides, and might I say, from what I’ve seen, they will do great!

Most of all, though, I learn something new about myself and about the world every time I go back to Honduras.  I learn that people all around the world are different, and that’s what makes the world so wonderful.  I feel like I am who I am supposed to be when I work in the mission field.

One Team Leader and One In Training

Won’t you please think about making a donation to our team this year and joining us in Honduras next year??  Who knows…I might be your team leader!!
Together, we are the difference.
