My favorite memory would have to be Roundup at Echo Valley. Frog made the scriptures come alive; I was absolutely mesmerized. My first summer, when he asked us to raise our hands if we wanted to know Christ as our personal Savior, I couldn’t raise mine fast enough. Some camp friends gave me my first groovy Reach Out Bible. The music at Roundup, too, was phenomenal. In those days, all the cool kids from Corpus sat around playing the guitar all the time; that’s what inspired me to learn to play. I used a lot of those camp songs throughout my years in ministry.
That ministry began at LLYC. I worked my way up from a camper at Echo to Work Crew in 1975, Counselor in 1976, and Work Crew Boss in 1977, all three positions at Singing Hills.
Years later, I’m still meeting new friends and connecting with old friends through the LLYC Alumni Group.
