English Camp 2016



We are in the middle of our annual English camp, and we’re so encouraged to see the Lord working in our teachers and students. On Sunday evening one of the members of the Zlin church gave a powerful testimony of God’s work in her life, telling how he saved her and her daughter by means of a tragic illness. 

We are seeing God show up in conversations with our students and even in the time we spend with the hotel staff. Please keep praying for his power to be seen and for lives to be changed.

Boy's and Girl's Discipleship Week

Last week we spent several days at a cottage in the mountains with young people from our church and a few extras from around the Zlin area. It was a very intensive time of study, prayer, and service. We also had a lot of fun! Here are some pictures from our time together. God showed up in some wonderful ways. Thank you for praying for us.

Moravian Folk Dancing

video


Our Czech friends are unusually musically talented. One of the young ladies in our church plays in a traditional folk music group. We traveled to a nearby city yesterday to attend one of her group’s performances. The video clip in this post is a very brief taste of the music, dancing, and costumes typical of this region. We learned yesterday that each village has its own costumes.

Team Retreat 2016



Last month we invited Paul and Liz Meiners to lead our team retreat, and they did a great job! We spent some restful days talking about our team, and our work, and being refreshed from God’s word. While the Meiners were here, we went on an outing to one of the beautiful caves in the Moravian Karst. There are several in the area north of Brno. The cave we visited has an underground river flowing through it and we were able to take a short boat ride. I’m pretty sure I’d never been in a boat underground before. The woods around the caves were also very lovely as you can see from the pictures.
