Off to Camp #1

I’m leaving tonight to head to Kherson region where we will be doing a 10 day long camp in the village of Kolinenska for the kids in orphanage #1.  There will be a team of 15 of us working with kids between the ages of 11 and 18!  The camp will be on the grounds of their orphanage and we will be going through our Life Skills curriculum with them as well as incorporating Bible stories into each day’s theme.

Kherson Internat's Oct 08 117We went to this orphanage for the first time in October and are excited for this chance to get to know the kids better and spend time with them each day.

                                                                                        If you can join us in prayer, please lift up the following things…

*Unity as a team—we are coming from all parts of Ukraine and all different ages- pray that Jesus would unite us in spirit and purpose.

*Pray that the youth will be receptive to the program we are bringing and that the Holy Spirit will open doors to conversations about Jesus.

*Pray for the health of our team- as there will be 15 of us living in a small 3 room house and currently I’m coming down with some kind of flu… :(

*Pray we will be flexible and hold our plans loosely—allowing God to direct what we are doing each day.

Will be back in a couple weeks with pictures and stories!!!
