Collision - English Camp

Summer English Camps 2011 have begun!! Saturday June 25 was the kickoff for the first 2 camps. By the end of the summer we will have had 8 camps throughout Poland.

The preparation began in the fall; choosing a theme, coordinating with Polish churches who want to host a camp along with North American churches who want to bring their youth group over to staff a camp. Mid May our summer intern teams arrived and spent a week at Josiah Venture's Summer Intern Training along with interns serving all over in central and eastern europe countries.
At the start of June, Poland summer interns came to our town, Bielsko Biala to advertise in schools. They came to Kelsey's Jr High to advertise. Because of their visit, 15 kids from her school are signed up for English camp which begins July 9th!!
There's Kelsey standing in the middle. 
Here is Greg in her school with our Poland intern team giving the class a sample of English Camp.
Later the summer intern team and our polish youth group leaders spent a day together hiking in the mountains. Our camp is July 9-16. We are especially excited to have our sending church Foothills Bible Church, Littleton, CO join our home church here in Bielsko Biala!!

It is our prayer that in the midst of a full life, students will Collide with Christ this summer.

We are sooooo excited about the work you are doing, the lives being impacted, kids being exposed to Christ in a way that would have never happened unless you were there. What a blessing! Praying for a harvest of souls and much eternal fruit.

Love Paul - for all of us ; )
