Lake Waubesa Bible Camp

Q&A with our new camp staff, Jesse and Jo Barriga

Q: What were you doing before you came to camp?IMG_5205

Jesse: Well…before camp we lived in Connecticut and I worked in the public school as a paraprofessional, where I got to work with kids with behavioral issues.  I also led worship at our church and ran a photo booth.

Jo: I was a nanny and helped with the children’s ministry at our church.

Q: What is your favorite thing from the canteen?

Jesse: It’s a tie between cold Reese’s peanut butter cups straight from the fridge and sour punch straws.

Jo: I’m not a big fan of candy, so I am going to have to go with the sea salt and vinegar chips.

Q: If money were no issue, what would love to see at camp?

Jo: Yurts! A whole village of them! Wait! No…a hammock village. You know what? I dream big, I want both!

Jesse: Underground tunnels to get around when it’s snowy…it would be awesome.

Q: What is your favorite camp song?

 Jo: Nothing tops the Hippo song!

Jesse: (Interrupts in a loud singing voice) “And the ducks go by, Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack!”

Q: You both worked here when you were in college and then spoke here the last several summers.  What is your favorite camp memory?

Jesse: My first year as summer staff at LWBC I led worship night. Leading worship night…yeah it was awesome!

Jo: I don’t know if I can pick just one, but the friendships I have made here will have a lasting impact on me.

Q: Will there be more baby Barrigas joining us at camp?

Jesse: Right now we have man to man coverage with the two of them and so if we were to throw another in the mix we would be outnumbered, and I don’t know if that’s a good idea.

Jo: What he said! Lord willing…

Q: What are you currently studying in the Bible?

Jo: Ecclesiastes until I get depressed about the world being meaningless, then I’ve been jumping to Luke for the joy of Jesus.

Jesse: I just finished reading through the entire Bible for the first time and now I’m going back through the Pauline epistles. I’m loving the book of Romans right now.

Q: What is your favorite camp meal?

Jo: Any time there are cheesy potatoes.

Jesse: There is no greater meal than that of the chicken patty sandwich – so good!

Q: What else could LWBC stand for?

Jesse: Let wet babies cry

Jo: What? No! Lemons would be cold

Q: What do you do in the off season when there is no summer camp?

Jesse: We host retreats groups.  We feed them and make their stay awesome.  We also get ready for summer camp.

Jo: We also design different things for summer and visit churches and other places to promote camp.

Jesse: Oh yeah…that too.
