June has flown by, training starts tomorrow, camp Saturday.

I can hardly believe that the month of June is coming to an end. It seems like not so long ago my interns were arriving in Kiev and we kicked off our summer. Our visits this month have been a great way for us to connect with youth groups in Sumperk, Strakonice, and H Brod as a team. I also really loved time with my team last we shared testimonies with one another I felt like we connected a lot better and know each other more. This is important going into camp service together.

Tomorrow the team from New Hope, MN arrives to do camp with us and Sumperk. My brother is also flying to serve with us and I'm pumped for these relationships. Sumperk is my longest-standing Czech church relationship, and I love the leaders of the US team.  Several of the Czech team members are different this year, but I am confident that God has prepared them for this service.

Pray for students to connect individually with the Czech team - relationships that will be built on the Gospel and lead to mature faith in Christ.
Pray for the details of camp to work out, and that I (and the rest of the team/organizers) always respond in a Christlike way to whatever difficulties await.
Pray for good time with students....I've tried to place myself in a position where I can love on students more are camp this year. 
Pray for a good time serving with my brother - serving alongside him is a first.

As always, keep track of camp and faces to pray for on instagram, facebook, or twitter
