Welcome to the blog for the 2018 Slovakia English Bible Camp team! We have 1 1/2 months until take-off, but the team has been preparing for this trip for many months already. We have spent time researching the culture, history, and language of Slovakia, discussing our role as humble servants sharing the Gospel, and talking about nitty gritty details like luggage weight and curriculum. Through all of this preparation, we have been praying for our future mission field and that God will move mightily in Vranov & Puchov, Slovakia through our witness.
Our team is representing the western part of the United States this year:
From Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Washington: Tim, Crystal, & Timmy
From Faith Lutheran Church in New Mexico: Heidi and Jackie
From Wellspring Anglican Church in California: Bob H.
From Mount of Olives Lutheran Church in California: Vic, Silvia, Bella, & Natalie
From Calvary Lutheran Church in California: Bob W., Chuck, Laura, Phil, Andreas, & Erika
Representing EEMN: Pr. David & Angela
We covet your prayers as we prepare our hearts, minds, bodies, and suitcases for our trip in July!
