Stories From the Field

English Camp Overview

English camp in the Rhodope Mountains was exhausting but great. Each morning we taught the Bulgarians some English concepts and told stories from the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally-Lloyd Jones. In the evenings we taught fun classes like art, CrossFit, Myers-Briggs, Poetry, and Veganism. Then the games began, which included some intense matches of Volleyball, Dodgeball (played with balls from a ball pit haha), and a home video competition. At night, our team leaders expounded on the stories from the Jesus Storybook Bible and we had group discussions on it afterward. Finally, we wrapped up the evening with different events like dancing, karaoke, games, a movie, and a bonfire. It was a fun week of bonding for us all, and a good introduction to what the Bible is about for the Bulgarians.
