It’s day 3 of EDGE Camp at Tepeyac! Today the teens kick it in to high gear both physically and spiritually. They endure a great paintball match and high ropes challenges— testing their nerves, strength, agility, and character. They also enter into a solid Catholic Bible Study, an awe-inspiring sunset Mass, and family dinner.

The week’s theme was “Behold the Mystery,” with host Lisa Epperson and musician Ike Ndolo. [nggallery id=149]
