Challenges Ahead This Summer—We Need Prayer Warriors, Workers and Financial Partners
We stand once again before a plethora of ministry opportunities this summer. During my recent visit to eastern Europe, I had the privilege of sitting with our national leaders and discussing the many ministries which lie before us.
Summer ministry begins in June, and preparations have already begun. This year there is much need for volunteers to help with repair work on our facilities in Hungary and Romania, painting, replacing old worn out parts, and beautifying the grounds.
In this edition of the UPDATE you will read about the developments concerning our 4th Annual Academy of the Arts. There are many things to thank the Lord for, but also several concerns and challenges yet to be resolved. Please make this a matter of prayer as you read the report.
Camps are another wonderful opportunity the Lord has given us in Hungary and Romania. But the challenges are;
1. More space for sleeping campers.
2. The need to do significant repair work at both of our camp facilities.
3. The need for more workers. This year could be a record setting year for the number of campers filling our facilities in June, July and August.
4. We need friends to sponsor orphans and gypsy children to attend camps. Our goal is to invite 100 of these children again this summer.
And finally, you will find a wonderful report on the needs for English speaking teachers to join us this summer in Romania, Ukraine or in Chile. If you are not an ESL teacher, but know someone who is, please pass on this urgent request. Thank you.
