Czech Republic

We just finished our 3rd full day of camp and we are having a blast! It’s amazing to see God work through all the different activities and people here: From being able to love on students during English classes, afternoon workshops and games, evening activities and hike day (we survived!) to being able to explicitly share the Gospel with them during evening talks and discussions. God has also given us several neat opportunities to share our testimonies with students and answer their questions during meals, hikes and bonfires! Tug of war during the afternoon games.

  Hike day!

Bonfire!

Our team, the Josiah Venture interns and the local church!

A few prayer requests…

  • Continued strength as we finish the last 3 days of camp
  • For the students: that we would continue to build good relationships with them, that they would understand more about the Gospel and that they would see Jesus through us
  • For our team, the interns and the local church: that we would continue to encourage and work together as one unified body of Christ

Mexico Update

Basketball camp is going great . Evan, Vinny, and Andrew are doing a great job building relationships and reflecting Christ’s love.
Thanks for praying for us!

Bolivia Update

Greetings from Bolivia.  We have had an excellent week installing water pumps and recording instructional videos in Vacas, a rural area near Cochabamba.  The instructional videos will be placed on YouTube for people in Bolivia and around the world to help them build hand-operated pumps.  The team has also participated in church services, provided Bibles, and encouraged members of three churches.  We have greatly enjoyed learning about Bolivian culture and meeting with members of the communities, pastors, and fellow believers in Christ.

It is amazing to see how God has used the engineering talents of SIM missionaries and others to provide water to numerous rural families but also how God has used the missionaries to provide spiritual water to the people.  The churches in the Vacas area are thriving, God is clearly working in the hearts of the people, and they have a strong hunger for God’s Word.
