THE ROMANIAN INVASION HITS MONTENEGRO
The Romanian Invasion? What is this? When I was living near Budapest, Hungary, a group of Romanians would come to my home to hang out for a couple of days for fellowship and Bible teaching. 8 to 10 of them would come … mattresses on the floor … big meals … what a blast! So, I coined the term, “The Romanian Invasion”, as I enjoyed being “invaded” by live wire young Romanians.
So, Iulian and three of his male staff members “invaded” Montenegro last Friday connecting with our team there. Jimmy Compton was on hand to represent the USA. Great time talking, eating and getting to know each other better. The photo above gives a good impression of their fun time. Hopefully, we can get the LIFE Montenegro team to visit our youth camp at LIFE Romania at one of their youth camps. It’s good to know you are part of a bigger team. And, this is where you come in because YOU are part of the team. Yes, you are! Your support and prayers make all of this possible. We could not do this ministry without you being part of the team. Thank you so, so much!
LIFE ROMANIA: I’M SO EXCITED!
Yes, I’m so excited, but, I can’t spill the beans just yet. What, what, what?
Some exciting plans for next summer. Oh, how I wish I could tell you now. Just can’t just yet. More planning needs to be done. In the meantime, please pray for wisdom in planning and for more groups to come from churches in the States.
I’ll get back to you when we have more concrete information. Oh man, I’m so excited! Stay tuned …
LIFE COSTA RICA: THERE IS A NEED
Cris Vidaechea reports that his vehicle died a slow death. We have a problem, Houston, I mean, Costa Rica. To buy a vehicle produced from 2006 to 2010 will cost between $17,000 and $20,000. Can you believe it? That’s expensive. But, that’s Costa Rica with high taxes on imported vehicles. No, they do not manufacture cars there. Will you pray? Will you give?
Meanwhile, we have another need there. We need a group to come from the USA to help with the games and activities at our next youth camp, January 31-February 4, 2017. Want to experience warm sunshine, summer-like weather during the cold winter? Come to Costa Rica! Call me at 321 663 5710 for more information or email me right away.
Costs for room and board as well as in-country transportation from and to the airport plus some sightseeing is $850 per person. Ticket prices to Costa Rica are not very expensive. Are you in?
Thank you for your friendship, your prayers and your financial support. Again, we could not do this outreach to young people around the world without your involvement. Thank you for all that you do! Stephanie and I pray for you and we thank God for you.

YOUNG ADULT CAMP IN ROMANIA
LIFE Romania held a youth camp for young adults last week seeing 15 dedication decisions. You know, God can go great things in the lives of young people in their 20s because they have time, energy and availability. This is exciting news that fifteen responded dedicating their lives to God! Pray that they will move forward with their decision of commitment to take it to the next level.
In 1990, when we opened a youth camp in Hungary during their first year of freedom from communist rule, an American teenager was on hand as a helper. Over the years he has helped me again and again. What a joy to announce that Jimmy Compton is now the Director of Camp Monty at LIFE Montenegro. Actually, Jimmy has been part of the leadership team while Rick DeYoung was leading Camp Monty. Grateful for all that Rick has done to help us build Camp Monty to its present stage. Pray for Jimmy and Michelle as plans are underway for Camp Monty 2017 next July.
Perhaps you would like to consider supporting the Comptons with your finances. You can do so online at www.lifeimpactforeternity.org or mail your donation to Life Impact for Eternity, 3984 Manatee Avenue East, Bradenton, Florida 34208.
NEEDY CAMPERS IN COSTA RICA
Want to make a difference in a young person’s life? $100 for a camp scholarship will be used to bring in a needy camper to hear the Gospel. This past January in our first ever youth camp at LIFE Costa Rica someone’s donation paid the way for a boy nicknamed Nene [nay-nay] to attend. Small time drug dealer at his school and on his street, school dropout, he heard the Good News at camp receiving Christ. Furthermore, at the camp fire service he dedicated his life to the Lord. Pray for Nene that he will be a strong witness to his family, teens in his school [yes, he returned to school] and on his street. Can’t wait to see Nene next January! Yes, you can make a difference like Nene. Will you?
Thank you for being a part of the team … praying, encouraging, giving, helping. The prayers of a righteous man availeth much according to the Book of James. Thanks for making a difference!
