Here are all 12 of the kids that went to the first week of camp.
This is Marius. He comes from a private children's home in a village not too far from us. He is 7. We met him first when he was almost 4. This is his first year of going to camp. He is a sweet, energetic, stinker! When he was born, his birth mom did not even name him. She put down a false name for herself so when she left the hospital without him they couldn't track her down. The mayor of the town he was born in gave him a name. Please pray for Marius, that he would know his Heavenly Father loves him and that he would some day receive a family.
