Campamento 2021 Day 1 – It’s on!

26 Jul

Campamento 2021 started today, Jul 26. Sister Sandra has at least three helpers. They are having a good time! Today’s women of faith are the 5 daughters of Zelophehad. This is a remarkable story where the women – with no brother – were going to lose their land and even the family name because they were women. Instead of accepting this injustice, they fought for their rights – an won! These women made quite an impression – very few women are mentioned in either the Old or New Testament and even fewer are named. Even though there were five of them, the Bible mentions each of them by name. It’s a reminder that each person is a member of God’s family – no exceptions.

These women not only caused a law to be changed for generations to come but modeled how to pursue change. They didn’t victimize themselves with despair and attempt to manipulate the situation. No, the daughters of Zelophehad were women of courage, faith, and honorable action.” Danielle Bernock

From a grateful heart springs…

From a grateful heart springs… love, happiness, solidarity, order, discipline, gratitude, peace, respect, and responsibility.

This has room for more! You can see the board for more women of faith, girls practicing the drama of the story, drawings of the story, and reflections.

I’m not sure what’s going on, but I receive quite a few pictures like this. I don’t know who that woman or the other helpers are or what they’re doing at the table.

From this angle, you can see Teresa Toda is right in the mix!

Fun with Friends

This should give you an idea of how Campamento went on the first day. It looks like fun to me!

Thank you Sister Sandra for all these beautiful photos!
