- We go straight from a backpacking trip to our Albania trip. Pray for good rest, safety, and all the details/logistics. This is the first time flying internationally for some of the interns.
- That we would serve our proper role at the youth camps. Mainly, that we would help local students connect with local youth leaders for long-term relationship. Help us to know our roles and to do it well!
- For safety in Albania with food, travel, crime, etc.
- That the interns would stay focused on the mission and not get distracted by less important things.
- That Albanian students would come to know and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
- That God might provide experiences and conversations that transform the interns into more effective leaders, harvesters, and disciple makers.
Czech Republic Mission Trip
Our team left for the Czech Republic on June 27th and will return on July 12th. Please be praying for their team as they lead English and Sports Camps for Middle School students. Pray that they would boldly proclaim the gospel and that many students would see their need for Christ!
Tacoma – High School Mission Trip
A group of our high school students will be heading to Tacoma Washington from July 8th-18th. They will be coming alongside one of our network churches by helping with a week long, outreach, youth sports camp. They’ll have the opportunity to teach the next generation new skills around certain sports while using sports as a means to meaningful conversations that hopefully lead to life transformation.
Please pray that the Lord prepares the hearts of the teenagers to serve the kids with joy and that God would use the camp to bring more Tacoma families into God’s family. Also, pray that our team would be united in love from now until the trip and that we would have safe travels.
