The Rest of June

I cannot believe that I sit here on the 2nd July writing this blog post!  So I guess once again it is time to give a bit of an update on what I've been doing.

It was great to "visit" the youth group here in Podebrady.  It was wonderful to get to know the members of the youth group better.  It has been an incredible blessing to visit all the groups we'll be working with for English Camps.

On Monday we decided that a day in Prague sounded like a great idea!  And it was.  It was good to spend some time resting as we explored the city.  I attempted to satisfy the caramel square craving I've been having for a while, but sadly Marks and Spencers in Prague doesn't have any!  Percy Pigs were a great substitute though.

As well as spending time exploring the beautiful city we had some Mexican food for dinner and I got to have a cup of tea and a chat with a friend from Prague, Maja, just before she left for Northern Ireland for a few weeks!  It was so great to catch up with her.

On Tuesday we headed out to the east of the country, back to Cesky Tesin.  It was great to be able to spend time with some of the other intern teams who are based out there.  We may have played some typical English Camp games and performed the camp dance in the middle of Cesky Tesin square.

We spent Wednesday and Thursday helping out a missionary family who live close by.  They are renovating their house, adding another floor to the house and extending it a little, and we helped by clearing rubble, the guys removed part of the roof, and we drilled and removed concrete paving!  They were a tiring couple of days but it was good to get to know the Dicksons, and to be doing something physical and something where we could see the results of our work!

On Friday we had another team day and we went to a town near Cesky Tesin, called Stramberk, for a bit of exploring and we also took time to reflect on the summer so far and continue the Bible study we're going through as a team.

The guys and I headed back to Podebrady on Friday, the girls were both visiting different friends over the weekend.  We spent the weekend continuing to balance our time between resting and preparing for camp!  The girls rejoined us on Sunday.

June has been a full month!  It has been great to get to know our each other well and to prepare for the camps that lie ahead.
