We began our day with Bekah and Radim leading us in worship.
After praying for our students, we had a murder mystery party in the Blue and Green classrooms. The bride was “murdered”; one bridesmaid was not too heart broken.
After lunch we played American kickball with our Czech friends. The students named their two teams The Chicago Bears and No Questions. No Questions won.
Tonight Josh taught a seminar on Scientific Discoveries while Bekah and Rhonda fielded questions on Christianity. What an amazing opportunity to be asked, “What is Christianity to you?” and “What does your faith/belief do for you?” And more!!!
We are so thankful for the opportunity to be here. Thank you for letting us come and for praying for us.
We began the day with a time of worship led by Bekah and devotion by Alca (Czech) with our Czech team. Alca brought us the Word of the Lord from Psalm 25 and 1 Peter 5:7. We were encouraged to put our hope in the Lord and give Him all our worries and cares. After praying for the students in our classrooms, we had breakfast together with all of the campers. (Photo of all 11 American English teachers). We are ready for our first day of school–English classes here we come! What a joy to be with our students today! Our first lessons were on the topics of family and friends. We learned a lot about each other, building a strong foundation for the rest of the week. This afternoon we will have team games, followed by dinner and evening seminars. Rhonda will be leading a seminar entitled “It’s About Time.” We will be challenged to consider our time, our priorities, our choices and our brevity on earth. We are just beginning to put the “puzzle” together. Later in the week, Josh will lead a seminar on scientific discoveries. His seminar will also point us to the choices we make regarding what we believe, what can be proven and what cannot. “Puzzle” is the the theme of our camp which will culminate in the Gospel message on Friday night. Please join us in prayer this week as God works in us, through us and around us for His Kingdom and His glory.
All three American churches have arrived on time and with luggage! This is a picture of our training time together in our Czech partner church’s youth room. They graciously gave us the use of their room for our all day training. We began as strangers from three teams and are now united as one. Today we will join the nine members from the Czech team on a day trip. Our prayer is that we will end the day united with our Czech brothers and sisters. Tomorrow? We meet our campers and head to English camp! Thank you for praying for us.
