CAMP MONTY 2015
Around 50 salvation decisions! Another incredible Camp Monty was enjoyed by Montenegrin youth again this summer in July. One of the exciting developments is that some of the young people who have attended Camp Monty in the past are helping with the camp program. It is wonderful to see our work there bearing fruit.
The Niksic Youth Center that we started in the spring partnering with the ministry of Danijel Petkovski is hosting meetings for teens from Camp Monty as well as college students from Danijel’s student ministry at the university. Sasa Olah, our staff member at LIFE Montenegro, is involved with both ministries. We are thrilled that a discipleship and follow-up ministry is being done through the NYC. Pray for these meetings each week.
Check this link for a brand new video that Jim Compton organized using the skills of Ben Foster, pro videographer, who attended Camp Monty this year. Maybe your church would like to get in on the action in Montenegro.
A dream deep in the heart of LIFE Romania Director, Iulian Avramescu, is to educate his young staff, camp counselors and other aspiring young adults. He calls this MIA University which works in partnership with a couple of Christian universities in the States. Guest lecturers and pastors come to teach modular courses with classes up to eight hours a day for five to six days in a week. These are held every two or three months.
The first one was met with much excitement from 25 young adults who listened to the teaching ministry of Jimmy DeYoung Jr. and Dr. Heath Marion, both from Texas, during the last week in August. Exhausted, yet happy students, were raving about the studies. Perhaps the one who was the most tired that week was Iulian who translated eight hours a day plus handling questions from the students before and after the sessions.
MIA U came after the heels of Camp MIA which featured eight weeks of youth camps this summer. Stephanie and I were there for four of those weeks. What a blessing it was! Hopefully, we can be at one of the next sessions set for April 9-16, 2016. Pray that we can organize outstanding speakers to travel to Romania to teach. Iulian and Roxana’s staff have SO much potential. If you can help sponsor these students please get in touch with me. Your investment can make a huge difference in their lives.
WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS FALL?
Introducing Stephanie to some supporting churches and individuals this month is a present focus for us. Plus, it gives me an opportunity to give a report and update about the ministry and ask certain churches to consider organizing to come to serve on one of our fields next year. We were in two churches in Charleston, West Virginia as well as three churches in Florida. Hang on, we have many more that we need to visit. Hopefully, we can meet more this fall and winter as well as into the next year.
In November, we travel to Costa Rica where I will teach the Book of Hebrews at IBS, Institute Bible Strom. I spoke the last two years at the youth camp that they conduct each January, Camp Brittney. The Bible Institute students are the counselors for these camps. It will be a joy to serve with Alonso Angulo, Director. Pray as I teach there three of the four weeks in November.
Hopefully, we can see the location for our youth camp planned for LIFE Costa Rica,January 18-22, 2016. Pray as LIFE Costa Rica Director, Cristian Vidaechea, is organizing volunteer camp staff. The camp site is beautiful as I have seen pictures. If you would like to support this camp by providing a scholarship for needy campers we need $100 per camper. Pray that God will abundantly bless this youth camp!
Thank you very much for your faithful prayers and financial support. Please pray that there will be special gifts to help with our mission account which is in need of donations. We are grateful to partner together with you to be your outreach to disadvantaged young people who need God’s love.
