July 5-11, 2015, OPC Short-Term Missions Coordinator David Nakhla and his wife, Faith, served as teachers at the annual Leopolis Green English Camp for university students in L’viv, Ukraine. OP missionary to Ukraine, Rev. Heero Hacquebord, is involved in the organization of the camp, which is described at its website as follows:
“You will have a whole week to practice your English – not only during lessons – but also as you SPEAK and spend all day with Americans while having fun together in the Carpathians. The camp is a week full of fun and new friendships, as you improve and use your English skills through speaking.
“You will enjoy a week in the beautiful Carpathian Mountains, plus many helpful and fun activities: English classes, English Bible discussions, games, American sports and culture classes, hobby classes, crafts, evening discussions, music, great food, dancing, parties and a whole lot more.”
