The Days that Lie Ahead

As I sit and write this blog post, with Star Wars Episode VI playing*, I know I'll be awake again in seven hours!  It will be an early start for some of us as we have to go tomorrow to pick up people from the airport!

Which means.. there are Americans arriving!  Which means.. training starts soon!  Which means...  English camp is very soon!  It's hard to believe.

Before each term of English camp there is pre-camp training.  I have been to four of these as part of the Irish team.  Tomorrow we will mainly be working with our team of Americans (who, for this camp, aren't really a team but several individuals and a couple of pairs who are all travelling out to serve) to help prepare them for camp.  Then, on Wednesday everyone else arrives and we will start training, which I'll be involved in this year.

And on Friday we will leave for English camp!  The students will arrive on Saturday, with English classes starting on Sunday.  Camp will end on the following Saturday and we'll spend a couple of days doing follow up with the youth group and students.

This is our camp with Hradec Kralove and I'm really excited about what God is going to do through the English Camp.  After spending time with the youth group it's clear they are very ready for English camp!  And they have a lot of different things prepared for during camp.

Your prayers for energy, strength, health are appreciated!  Please also pray for unity among the Christians, that we would serve together well!  And pray for the students who will be at camp - that as they hear the Gospel, God would be working in their hearts and lives to draw them to Himself.
