We’ll we’re done with camp. I’m sitting in the lobby of the (nice) hotel where we are staying in Krakow. Camp ended this morning and it was really hard to leave. The students at camp helped us pack the bus and even ran down the street waving goodbye while crying. This camp was an amazing time with the Lord – more so than just about any mission trip I’ve ever experienced. It’s been a while since my last blog because the internet service was slow and any down time we had with the computer not being used in worship – Mark had to use it to do video editing. I will post all the videos in the next couple of blogs. I need to go soon, but I want to share two short stories:
1. Wednesday night at worship, some of the Polish students formed a band to play for the service. It was great, but there were no drum sticks for the drum that was at the seminary. The boy used writing pens to play it. The pens where from Sam Copeland. Sam, your pens where not only used for students to write down their devotional thoughts, but actually used to bring glory to God in worship through song. Wow. I attached a picture below. Thanks for praying for our students, Sam.
2. Last night was one of the most moving experiences I have ever had. We did a prayer experience with the students during worship. I lasted from 9:00pm-11:30pm (1hr of which was solid prayer). Even after 11:30pm, over 15 Polish students stayed in the sanctuary to pray and deal with things on their hearts. We know of at least one teenage girl who accepted the Lord as her Savior and almost all the rest of the 50 students from Poland rededicated their lives. Our students where changed too. We had a number of our own students rededicate their lives as well.
Thanks for your prayers – they were felt. We have a day of touring Krakow tomorrow and then travel home on Sunday. See you then!
By the way, read the previous blog (the Monday video is now working). Also, since I last wrote the cross has been passed from Katie Roberts to Anna Grace Hall and now onto Martha Lee Lancaster who is wearing it now.
