July 12-24, 2017, the English Camp team traveled to the Czech Republic to serve at this year’s summer family camp, where they taught English using Scripture, under the direction of OP missionaries Jerry and Marilyn Farnik . . .
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 . . .
