A short term trip for Audrey + an English Camp for teens = an internship in Plovdiv. Now Audrey is developing a young ladies Bible Study with teens from our Teen English Camp.
“We talk about God and what the Bible says at English Camp. What do you think about that?”
Each year we ask students this question during the application for English Camp. It always provokes interesting conversations, even before we leave for camp!
This year our theme was God is Rescuer. Over the course of the week, we talked about how our lives are unmanageable and corrupted by sin. And the problem isn’t just that there are bad people in the world; the problem is that we all have evil in our hearts. God is vital because He is the only one who can rescue us from our own corruption.
Please continue to pray for those who attended camp. Many left with their beliefs about people challenged by what was shared from the Bible. Pray for them as they consider what the Bible has to say and pray for us as we continue to share with them about God and what the Bible teaches.
Some time ago we were given pictures drawn by art students in a school located in the nearby town of Asenovgrad. The art teacher there is extremely talented and really brings out the best in her students. With the help of our language teacher, Elena, we were able to set up a “Cultural Night/Art Exhibit” in a local library where we could display the pictures. Many people from Plovdiv and Asenovgrad were invited and various people came. We announced that the pictures were available for them to take home but we asked that they make a donation. We were able to raise 275 leva for the school to purchase needed art supplies. It was a wonderful evening meeting new people, listening to music and poetry and enjoying the pictures the children had made.
