In this year that we honor the 500th anniversary of the start of the Reformation, you have an opportunity to visit the home country of Jan Hus, a Czech priest, philosopher, Master at Charles University in Prague, church reformer, and a key predecessor to Protestantism who was burned at the stake for his beliefs in 1415, and was an important influence on the life and work of Martin Luther. Not only that, but you have an opportunity to assist our missionaries, Jerry and Marilyn Farnik, in witnessing to Christ and sharing the Gospel, together carrying on Jon Hus’ legacy . . .
The best part of the English Camp team is the diverse range of ages of team members, from young people to more seasoned adults, all working together . . . everybody doing their own job that fits the gifts that God has supplied them with. Short term missions are not only for the young but for the whole body of Christ . . .
English Camp is advertised in the Czech Republic as a family camp run by Christians. Families are invited to a resort for one week to attend English classes, go on day trips, enjoy sporting activities, and put on skits and talent shows. All reading lessons are from Scripture and oral discussions revolve around the stories . . .
Every day leading up to and during English Camp, my mind and heart were consumed with how to serve the Lord or I was reminded that I was there to serve Him. Instead of thinking about where I would eat and what sights I would see, I was thankful for health and God’s provision as fuel to serve Him everyday . . .
