The 2015 summer camp season is officially open. The first group of children in a series of evangelistic camps has brought together forty-nine children at KBC "Beginnings” Camp.
All-camp "Carzy-Soccer" game was a huge hit.
The morning club was attended by two police officers who shared with children about safety and need to behave while away from home. It is great to see the police officers influence children's lives in a such positive way in post-USSR culture.
This season has begun in the middle of an outright spiritual attack on the entire KBC team with many areas of opposition. There are several ways you may pray for us:
1. The day before the camp we were told there is no water in the village as there is a drought and the camp is at the end of the line. We were not getting any water at all. By God's provision we have very limited water now and praying for some rain. We also need to install a 20 ton water tower by the camp to make sure this situation would be avoided in the future.
2. We are facing an unusual pressure from the government. The officials we work with for the last several years seem intent on driving our staff "crazy" with unreasonable regulation demands that do not exist. Our camp director has done a great job thus far to overcome every obstacle. Please pray for the team's patience and pressure to not stop us from main reason we are here - sharing the Gospel with the children and influencing their lives for the Lord.
3. The missionary families seem to face an unusual amount of sickness, broken house appliances and issues with extended family. As we know there a no coincidences. So please pray for the Lord's protection and emotional peace as we help each-other overcome these obstacles.
A Moldovan TV channel Journal TV has interview random people on the streets of the capital about the songs they consider to be great this season. Educed C., a Moldova Bible Seminary student was one of them and of course he took time to give glory to God naming the song "How Great Is Our God." Eduard even sang the song as he serves in worship ministries of his church and other evangelistic outreaches through his music talents. Watch the video below to see Eduard give glory to God.
Evghenii along with three other KBC leaders participated in European Leadership Forum during the first six days of June. This year Evghenii came to the forum in the role of a speaker and had an opportunity to share with about forty leaders who participated in the forum seeking to share experience and find new ways to reach the world with the Good News. Evghenii shared about the partnership principles and benefits in putting the strengths of churches from across Europe. The group also discussed pitfalls to avoid as well as participated in the open forum seeking ways to overcome the culture gap.
The European Leadership Forum seeks to serve and equip national Christian leaders to renew the biblical church and re-evangelise Europe. Our strategy to achieve this involves identifying, uniting, mentoring, and resourcing evangelical leaders so they can:
At the our annual meeting, our leaders teach, train, and encourage participants as everyone seeks to identify common needs and find resources to meet them. Attendees find mentors and build friendships that will allow collaboration and new partnerships. Having met and heard Forum leaders teach, participants can determine which of them might be most helpful back in their own countries. These attendees have arranged annually more than 350 local, regional, and national events and initiatives that accelerate the advance of the gospel in their home countries.
Yuri, Alexander, Evghenii and Serghei attended the European Leadership Forum help in Wisla, Poland. This is a gathering of over seven hundred Chrisitan leaders from across Europe who gather with a desire to network and share common experiences to enhance the efforts of bringing the Gospel to the European people. Europe today is post-Christian and needs to be re-evangelized. ELF brings people with amazing experience and theological knowledge. This year our team had focused on exploring Discipleship, Youth Ministry Outreach and Mission Efforts.
