When I was 9, I started attending Camp Crossroads and met a girl named Julianne from Kitchener. I saw her every summer, since we are the same age. When I was in my 20s, I started attending a new church. The first person who talked to me and invited me out to join the choir and her small group was Julianne. She recognized me from Camp.
Now in my 40s, I am Facebook friends with Julianne and my 9 year old daughter had started going to camp. Julianne attends a different church than I do and we don’t hang out in the same social circles, but I’ve been watching her FB posts! In 2017, she volunteered at Camp for a week. Then I saw that the Bible Kids Club she volunteered with wasn’t going to run that fall. I kept thinking about her and how she gives so much time, energy and love to kids….and Jesus.
