Two Down One to Go!

I can not believe that the summer is almost over and that I only have one more camp. This last camp is Skoczow (schochoof) was great! It was the first camp for both the Poland church and the American youth group. Our team's roles were much different in that we only filled wholes and taught both groups how to do things. It was great to be able to focus more on relationships. For me it was great to connect with American high schoolers again. I have missed them so much in the last 6 months. I got close to a few of them and it was hard to say good-bye.

The interns did GREAT! I was so proud of the way they lead the camp. God is good and is teaching all of us things that we did not expect.

The Polish youth group was good to work with. They are a young group full of dreams to reaching their community for Christ. It was an unusual camp due to the fact that Skoczow is mostly Protestant and that the Catholic church is not as powerful there. The mind set was different and I got a front row seat to watch how God was working with and in this church.

God is good. In 3 days we go up north to do our final camp, then spend a few days debriefing the summer and then I say good bye to the interns. It is bitter sweet for me. I have really come to enjoy and love this intern team, but I also look forward to hearing how God will use then and continue to grow them as they go back to the States.

Yay! Can't wait to have a long convo with you when this summer is over and you've had a chance to unwind and reflect.
Guess what?! We didn't take a picture in Poland. What the heck?!
