A few weeks ago, we held a brief retreat to make plans for the year ahead. We didn't go very far - just ro the lovely little mountain village of Velke Karlovice. We included our Czech leaders in this planning process. We tried to ask them a lot of questions and listen to their perspectives on the values that guide the church, the challenges that the church faces, the resources available to the church, and the vision they have for the church. These discussions were very good and will hopefully lead to some new plans to reach our city. Please pray with us as we seek to follow God's leading.
