Three best offers of this winter!
- Go to the seaside – from the winter into the summer
- try and enjoy the rainy winter
- go to a camp for handicapped children
Though to be completely honest, I need to say that part of the winter break we did spend on the seaside… but that was on the coast of the Baltic Sea in Estonia.
Camp “Butterfly” is a very special place. Special kids with rich spiritual world and special dreams and plans attend it. How about you? Do you have plans for year 2014? What are you planning to do?
Most of the kids have some form of cerebral paralysis and can only move around in a wheel chair. Most of them stay home. Most of them do not believe in Jesus just like their parents.
In the winter camp «Butterfly», the kids come with their parents, brothers and sisters.
The main topic for this year was ‘5 love languages’.
The kids feel happy in the camp. This is the only place where they can play hokey, attend a ball or do some craft. This is a place where they are exposed to God’s love and they can learn about how God accepts them the way they are.
We were asked to organize the time for the parents.
We made friends with several parents and are planning to regularly meet with them. Please join us in praying for their salvation.
That was our vacation.
Now we are back to work.
We’re working with the Russian Orthodox church on a project called ’40 days in the Word’. The idea is to have every Christian in St. Petersburg give their nonbelieving relatives and friends a New Testament with a DVD version of the Jesus film. The next step is to invite them to a Bible Study or church. We were surprised when we met one of the main priests in the Fedorovsky Cathedral. We have not met people so interested in evangelism and discipleship for quite a while in any of the churches. “Please come and teach our people. We will make a list of people who want to give out the copies of the Bibles, so you can pray for these people and we can track down their spiritual growth, asked the head priest. We are constantly looking for such opportunities; however, these people came to find us.
Every person in St. Petersburg would know at least one faithful follower of Jesus Christ,
That the parents from the Butterfly camp would make a decision to follow Christ
The project with the Russian Orthodox Church would bring many fruit for God’s kingdom;
God would take care of the needs of our families
