The Academy is here!

This week has been one that I've been working towards for quite some time. Yesterday an event called The Academy began, and it runs until Sunday.

We have 120 people gathered here at Malenovice - leaders (full time missionaries, volunteers, Americans, nationals, a Scot, an Englishman and me) of our Fusion (music), camps and sports ministries.

Please be praying for us as we meet together. The event has been organised by the team, S-Team, that I serve on. Pray for the six of us as we continue to build into people, sort out details and are hands-on throughout the time. 

The goal of our time together is to practically equip these wonderful people to serve their ministries well so we're learning things like how to motivate teams, handle conflict, lead well, prepare materials, lead Bible studies, train and equip other volunteers and teams... to name a few things!

Pray that as we meet God would not only be equipping all of us to serve Him better but that He would also meet with us here; that we would be given a new understanding of how much He loves us and the students we serve and that the knowledge of that love would be what motivates us!

It is such a privilege to be here and serving these wonderful leaders who love God and who love the students they are reaching across the nations of central and eastern Europe.
