Exch@nge Camp - DAY2 - Breaking the Rules

Second day at the Exch@nge Camp 2016 in Budrio.

This morning we had our second Talk from Genesis 2:16-17, 3:6. Colin lead this time explaining that our God is a good God that created everything good. It is that same good God that protects us from hurting ourselves!

The American kids in every group answered to this question: Have you ever tried 
“to be good” and “to follow the rules” for a day?
What did you discover when you realized that you couldn’t keep them?



Today we had very special sport activities.

In the morning we played Basketball with Rae Lin, an American professional Basketball Player and Volleyball with the Houston Team.



We've also had the privilege to join the Parkinsonian training with a group of Italian & American kids!!!
