The Písek team is having an amazing time at camp! Thank you for supporting us through prayer! Our time is going so fast!
Our English classes have been going well, and the Czech team has had some great activities planned for our camp. On our first day, our camp took a “Mission to Mars.” We flew in a rocket to the “Red Planet” and had to collect enough fuel to return to Earth. On our second day, our camp played a game entitled “Citadel.” For those of you that play board games, “Citadel” was like a real-life game of Catan. Last night, our camp had an “Oscar’s event.” During this red-carpet event, each English class group showed off movies their class had made. All of these events are fun, but God is really using them to help us develop relationships and build trust with the campers.
Today is our hike day. This is an opportunity to have significant conversations with campers. Tonight is also our “Gospel Night.” During the evening program the gospel will be clearly presented, and the campers will have the opportunity to reflect on the week as they move through a “labyrinth.” In the “labyrinth” they’re asked to think about their life’s journey. After the “labyrinth,” there will be a “tea room” setup where significant gospel conversations can continue.
This is a full and very important day for us at camp. Please pray for fertile soil as gospel seeds are planted, and that God will use us as we desire to be faithful witnesses and ambassadors for Christ. God is working in the Czech Republic, and we are so blessed to be a part of it.
Zach (for the team)
And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. – 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 NLT
