I am about to embark on a great adventure. . . summer camp.
Many of the staff have already arrived in Kyiv and Wednesday evening we will all gather together to kick off the preparations for CCX Summer English Camp: Mission
imPossible. This week there will be team building and ropes course building. There will be training in inductive study and there will be a lot of coffee drinking.
Next Sunday the buses will arrive and there will be cheering. Then the week will be filled with Bible studies and team challenges. There will be sports and art and dancing. There will be a lot of laughter and really deep conversations. There will be a ton of coffee drinking. And at the end of next week there will be tears – there always are. Then the buses will roll away and the staff will collapse in exhaustion.
The camp theme this year is focused on the impossible. We will, of course, be helping students strengthen their English skills but we will also be imparting other knowledge and wisdom to help them as they navigate this mission of living life to the fullest. Our Bible studies show impossible situations that God showed up in and somehow fulfilled the mission. We will talk about the overwhelming things in life and point to the God who makes the impossible possible.
It’s an exciting time and we are looking forward to a great camp. Will you join us in praying for our time with the students. Here are a few suggestions:
Thank you for praying for our students and staff as we minister at camp. I look forward to sharing with you the stories and photos in a couple of weeks!
