Tomorrow morning I leave for The Netherlands, we are taking 12 young Polish people to the European Foursquare “U-Turn” camp for youth. There will be about 20 nations from all over Europe and some from The States. As far as I know I will not have any Internet access from the camp, but if I do, I will try to post at least once next week. I plan on taking many pictures and will be writing in my journal with the different things I see Jesus doing and where I feel him leading me. Some people from a church in the Portland, OR area will be there and their pastor, Dan who visited us earlier in the year when Alexis was here. Him and his wife run an internship program that is similar to the idea I have had for Poland/Seattle, so I hope to talk with him.
Please pray that I can build a relationship with the one young Polish guy (who doesn’t know much English) who is coming. There will be only two guys, me and him, all the rest are woman. Also pray that all the details of returning home do not block my capacity to minister to whomever God puts into my life this coming week. Of course any other prayers are welcomed as I conclude my time with Poland on a mountain top. I’ll be back on August 1st, I’ll post something and pictures probably by the 2nd.
Live life, then, with a due sense of responsibility, not as men who do not know the meaning of life but as those who do. Make the best use of your time, despite all the evils of these days. Don’t be vague but grasp firmly what you know to be the will of the Lord.
On a side note, since moving out of my apartment on Monday I have only been connected to the Internet three times. Two of those times have been on Dial-up, yikes, I forgot the pain of dial-up.
