English Camp 2018

“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.

Community of Faith

In February we celebrated our church plant’s 2nd birthday; we had our first meeting on February 14, 2015. Since then what looked like a small discussion group meeting on Sunday nights has grown and formed into a our “Community of Faith”. Very recently the women of the church- a full range of different backgrounds, points of view, ages, and also different languages- have started a Bible study that meets twice a month. We are reading and studying the book “The Lies Women Believe and the Truth that sets them Free” by Nancy Leigh Demoss. The book acts as a guide as we focus on the word of God, and our goal is to truly dig into His scriptures for our truth and our foundation. They invited me to be a part so I get to sit in and practice my Bulgarian listening skills. They have also cared for me and bought me an english version of all the materials, so I can follow along fully. I would ask you to pray for us as a group of women: to encourage each other, support each other, and push each other towards the truth.
