This week has flown by and I can’t believe it.
The camp has been so cool and the kids have been a huge blessing to me. It is great to be able to be around youth again and to not feel panicky or anxious all the time. Today I learned some sick new dance moves from one of the youth named Patrick. He is studying dance in Prague and decided to run a workshop for the camp. It was hilarious. I also have to add that I received many compliments from people about how quickly I was able to pick up the dance moves. Even though there is a language barrier it has been awesome just spending time with the kids and loving them. There have been a lot of laughs and some interesting conversations when a translator has a enough time to sit down with us. It has been really busy and it feels like it has been go go go…
Tonight we played a game against the Skulls. This is a team that we have played every year and on my first trip, I shared my testimony with them. Tonight, I shared it again but only shared about the last 6 months of Melinda’s (my wife) and my lives. They have been crazy to say the least. God has been at work and has performed some incredible miracles. I am not going to say all the details but we are having a baby and the doctors did not think Melinda was going to be able to get pregnant. That’s amazing! God is good and I had often forgotten that, especially since I had such a rough patch just before the trip.
I am already missing the “Prayer and Share” times with the team before we head off to bed. I find these times incredible, uplifting, sometimes frustrating but more often than not, fruitful. We are open and honest with one another and really have a sense of community. It is great but every year I feel sad about having to have to give that up at the end of the trip. Before I know it I will be on a plane anticipating seeing my wife at the airport. But until then there is still a lot of work to do here. God is moving in the Czech Republic and I am so honoured and blessed to have been able to experience a small part of it.
