Today marks the official point when we are over halfway done with the Puchov camp! Things have been going swimmingly. Tonight we will be visiting the teen camp (see "Slovakia/Bulgaria Teens '17" above) and sharing in food and activities with the teens and the American teen camp team. Thursday evening is a small program and barbecue for parents and kids, and Friday will be our closing program already! We will be leaving immediately after camp on Friday afternoon to travel to Vienna.
Please pray for:
- Continued energy and strength for the team as we head into our final stretch
- The teen camp team as they live and work with the teens each day
- Openness of the children to the Gospel, which most teachers will be introducing tomorrow as part of the day's theme of forgiveness
- Safe travels to Vienna on Friday
