Why are you excited to work at Camp Luther this summer? I’m excited to work at camp because I love spending time outdoors and building relationships with others. I’m also looking forward to sharing my faith with others!

Who is one of your favorite Bible characters? One of my favorite bible characters is Joseph. I love the way God worked through Joseph to save thousands of people and the growing Israelite nation in the midst of a terrible famine. I also think there’s so much we can learn as Christians from Joseph and the way he forgave his brothers for everything they did to him.

What is your favorite Bible verse? Romans 6:3-5 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Farther, we too walk might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.

What is your favorite camp activity? I love playing night games and going to chapel and campfire!

How can people pray for you this summer?  I would really appreciate prayers for energy, patience, and positivity throughout the summer.
