Servant Leadership Experience

Hume Camp San Diego

Dear friends and family,

My name is Jake, and I attend a high school group called Merge at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship. The high school group and I were recently informed about a mission trip to Chicago, IL to serve and care for the needy and homeless. This will take place from July 8th through the 14th. This will be an outstanding experience for us to learn about the qualities of being a servant leader and to help others in need. After the week of firsthand experience, we will take what we will learn and apply to ourselves and others to our own communities at home.

We will be teaming up with Servant Leadership Experience – which is a ministry of Lead222. Lead222 is an organization devoted to the mentoring, training, and development of Christian leaders and students. They value the concept of servant leadership and provide that experience to assist youth ministries who want to help serve the physically, financially and emotionally challenged of our world as they build into their ministry students and the leadership values that will serve them for life.

What we will do for others in Chicago are work projects for the needy. These work projects will serve churches and organizations in a lasting way, while giving us a hands-on opportunity to develop servant leadership skills. We also will be given a clear understanding of the importance of flexibility and teamwork as we unite together to accomplish a single task.

I would first like to ask if you would pray for me and my team as we spend this week in Chicago.  Secondly, I need to raise $1000 to go on this trip.  It would be greatly appreciated if you would be a part of this journey and be willing to donate to my cause. If you feel led, you can write a check to Cornerstone Christian Fellowship with my first and last name and Chicago (Merge) in the memo. Thank you for your support and prayers.

God Bless,  Jake Timmons

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves.  Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interest of others.  Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus.  – Philippians 2:3-5

San Diego has become my home away from home. I know the city very well. We did frequent trips there growing up. It’s only a quick 5 hrs away to the beach. This was my last full week with the boys before they go back to school. So we decided to stay there for the week and beat the heat. There was a lot going on in San Diego this week that kept us busy.

We pulled in on Tuesday and checked into our hotel. We immediately hit the beach. Coronado island is always one of our favorite spots. So we spent some time in front of the Del relaxing from our drive. Then a stop at one of our favorite pizza places, Pizza Nova. Of course we got looks because of our beach attire. But the pizza was worth it. That night we saw a late showing of the “Dark Knight”. Batman was my favorite comic book hero growing up and I really enjoyed this lastest installment. Heath Ledger was amazing as the joker.

Wednesday was a day at the Zoo. We had been there many times before. But I love the walk around the park. Its definetly one of the best zoos in the country. Ty is a huge animal lover and really enjoyed his time there. Jake is kinda outgrowing it and let that be known to me. Best part is the polar bear plunge. We stood there for some time. I ended getting sick that day and spent the evening in bed.

We hung at Balboa park the next day. A visit to the Air and Space museum was on the agenda. Checking out the old World War I & II aircrafts was fun.  They had a traveling Star Trek exhibit that brought back some memories of my trekkie days. We then headed downtown to Petco park. There wasn’t a game, so we toured the ballpark. They took us in the locker room and into the dugout. My baseball fanatic days are behind me as well, but I really enjoyed being a kid again.

David Crowder and Mercy Me played a show at San Diego state university that night. My friend Kris joined us that night. It was a good show. I believe it was my kid’s first concert. It was good to get a little worship into the middle of the week.

Our fourth day ended up being a crazy day at the largest gathering of comic book fans.. ComicCon. We’re talking 100,000+ fans. It was nuts! There were so many people dressed up in outfits. The day we went on was Star Wars day. Lots of Stormtroopers walking around. I couldn’t resist taking pictures. We also obtained lots of free stuff. ComicCon is one of San Diego’s biggest events of the year. We had fun, but the crowds got to us and we left.

Camber, our young adult group came up late that night. We hooked up with them and stayed at a local church that night. We spent the evening at Pacific beach and then Mission beach the next day. I spent a lot of time doing nothing. It was nice. We then had a bonfire and a BBQ the last night before wrapping up the week. This was a fun last week of the summer for the boys and I before school starts.
