The team started off the morning with a worship service at the WOL camp, followed by orientation for the English teachers and organization of supplies for the athletic coaches. A whirlwind of activity started as the campers arrived mid-afternoon to check in and get settled. The English teachers helped with testing the campers’ skill level to place them in the appropriate classes. Campers and counselors alike were thrilled to receive the gift of the Dallas Cowboys t-shirts that we brought with us and it was fun to see the excitement on their faces. Tonight, we are preparing the lessons for tomorrow and will meet our students right after breakfast.
We are grateful for your prayers: Clark was able to go to the airport first thing in the morning and retrieve the missing bag, which had all supplies intact! Praise the Lord!
The theme this year is “Superheros” and the camp is filled with images from Marvel cartoons.The dining hall is especially fantastic as they painted the walls with various popular superheros. I have included some photos so you all can see how fun it looks. My favorite one is over the doors to the kitchen and is easily seen from every seat in the dining hall. It is a picture of Jesus talking with four superheros, who are listening to Him intently. The Hungarian writing above it says, translated in English, “… and that’s how I saved the world.”
Our prayer requests for tonight/tomorrow are: for us to adjust to the time change quickly so we can be fully present for the campers. We pray for protection for the campers and everyone on the WOL campus. We pray for the Holy Spirit to open hearts so that the campers can begin to grasp God’s deep love for them, and can desire a relationship with Him through Jesus. Please pray also for unity among the groups here to volunteer and for the camp staff, that we would clearly demonstrate the love of God through our actions.
Thank you for holding us up in prayer!
