I recently returned from a week in Quebec City where we ran the English for Kids camp for children ages 5-12. And what a whirlwind of a week it was . . .

The Very Strength of God

2015-07 Caleb Nelson - St-Georges Quebec 2015

I was keenly conscious of having been sent. We were not in St-Georges de Beauce on our own authority. We were there because our church had sent us, supported us, and told us to speak in the name of Jesus . . .

Look to Him in Missions

Jesus is being taught to all the nations and we need Him to shine His face upon us as we serve Him in this way. Look to Him in missions, not yourself. Look to Him from whom all blessings flow . . .

We consider our brothers and sisters in Christ from OPC mission teams ‘missionaries’ instead of just ‘volunteers’ because of their dedicated service to bring Gospel to the town of Yamamoto by loving the locals in a tangible way . . .

I was struck when I witnessed Pastor Bill Welzien’s gospel presentation in Mallory Square the first night. I had seen various methods in my time as a Christian but none so captivating, so clear . . .

Trust Him Who Began the Work

As one who has been on several mission trips both domestically and abroad, it is interesting how much things stay the same, regardless of where you are. Spiritual starvation. While the culture and language may be different, the reality of sin doesn’t disappear . . .

Cohesiveness as a Team – A Great Blessing

The children this year were very responsive to and receptive of the message we were sharing through the means of drama. Many children even remembered lessons learned from previous years’ skits and lessons . . .

Life as a Disciple of Jesus

Chapel with tram (2)

The Boardwalk Chapel ministry has blessed countless people from all over the world, both saved and unsaved, and the Lord has sustained and grown many disciples within its walls. All this, and much more, I have been blessed to know firsthand . . .

Team Praha impacts you but it also impacts those around you. When you see people thinking deeply about Scripture, questioning it, searching it, you know they are close to the kingdom. It made us all rejoice to know that seeds might fall on good soil . . .

Bill Welzien prepares his presentation

I learned a lot about evangelizing, and I also learned some things about myself; areas where I am lacking and areas where I have strengths I wasn’t even aware of. It was a fantastic trip overall . . .

Every day leading up to and during the 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 . . .

Relationship Growth with God and Each Other

The experience I had there was incredible and I definitely grew closer to God over the week. I also grew much closer to the guys I went with and am very thankful for their friendship . . .
