We are wrapping up our last night of English camp. There is a mixture of emotions as we prepare to depart in the morning. The labyrinth was a very special night, and we got to witness some incredible things that evening. A sincere thank you is due to all those who prayed for that night! It could take hours to type all of the specific ways we got to see God move on gospel night, but there are a few specific highlights.
Overall, there was a transparency that was experienced among the campers (Christian and non-Christian). It seemed like deep conversations were being had everywhere after the labyrinth. Lastly, we were able to welcome a new believer into the family of God that night! Please continue to pray for him in the days ahead as he tries to live out his newfound faith in an atheistic culture. To hear more specifics, you may need to take your son or daughter out for coffee when we get back.
I have been very impressed with the perseverance of our team this week. Not only has God done great things in the Czech’s lives, but it is evident that Jesus is changing our team as well. There is a maturity among our team members that is greatly appreciated and encouraging! God has been moving in very encouraging ways this week, and as we cherish the next few hours together, we are also excited about follow-up this weekend.
Follow up is a special time that we get to partner with the Czech youth group in a few events they put on to encourage campers to participate in after camp. We are encouraging the campers to make lasting relationships with the Czech team that will carry on throughout the year. Sunday morning will look very similar as camp. We will be coming together as one body. Alex Velte will be leading worship and Zach will be presenting a message on John 10. We will also have an opportunity to share a meal with the members the church before heading to Prague where we will be reunited with the Pardubice team.
How you can pray:
- Pray for the the new believer who we helped welcomed in the family of God after the labyrinth, especially in the days ahead as he tries to live out his newfound faith in an atheistic culture
- Please, be in prayer for the transition from camp to every day life.
- Pray that the campers will get plugged in with the youth group and continue on their journey to a greater knowledge and understanding of our Lord.
- We also ask that you pray for safe travels for each of our teams as they head to Prague and as we begin our journey home.
