When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
— Psalms 8:3-4 (ESV)
Compass is a first-year camp counselor at Camp Thurman, and a first-year Texan. She’s attending Weatherford College this fall but later transferring to an undecided university to eventually become a neonatal nurse, or maybe a first grade teacher, or maybe a missionary nurse. She graduated this spring from Calvary Christian High School in Bellefontaine. Her favorite thing about Camp Thurman is how God’s love radiates so bright that it can be seen shining from 1000 miles away. You’re probably asking yourself “How does she know?! Where’s Bellefontaine?!” From 1071 miles away, in a small town in Ohio, God pointed her life from northeast to southeast (hence the nickname Compass). The figurative journey to Texas is about as long as the literal 17 hour drive, but if you wanna hear it sometime, she’ll be more than happy to tell you about how God’s direction lead her here. What she looks forward to the most is being able to make an impact on kids’ lives and being able to remind them that Jesus’ love is endless and everywhere; whether its now in Camp Thurman, later in Heaven, or before in Ohio.
