What I Learned While Watching the Cows Graze

By Katlyn Carney, Team #9 Intern Have you ever just stood there and watched the cows graze? Imagine yourself with your arms crossed on top of a wooden fence. Now, lay your chin on your crossed arms.

Still… the cows are ...

Following God’s Leadership

By Ryan Everritt, CBM National Intern - I am on my last rotation at Camp Red Arrow and then will be graduating from the year-long Internship program. This is not, however, the end of my journey. I may not want to be a full-time Children's Bible Ministry staff member, unless it's what God wants. Still, I want to go make disciples of many nations, as it says in Matthew 28:19 (ESV), "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”  As those are the words of Christ's command, I have such a ...
