The Slovakia Missions Team leaves on Thursday June 28th to begin four weeks of intensive Englsh Camp ministry in Slovakia. This will be the sixth year that Trinity has sent a team to Slovakia.
We would like to introduce this year’s team and give some specific prayer requests. We will also be posting updates often on the website and the Facebook page.
Here is most of this year’s team:
From left to right, the team consists of Miriam Early, Darra Murray, Melinda Zeek, Jonathan Rask, Emily Cummings, Bob DeGray, Michelle Murray, Cassidy Mayfield, Todd Cobbs, Cameron Cummings, Peter Rask, Ashley Eveland, and Tim Berreth. Not shown are Bethany Berreth, Patti Cummings and Stephanie Eddy (She was taking the picture).
The team will be spending two weeks in Trencin, Slovakia. One of these weeks will be focused on teaching English using Bible stories, while the other will use a more secular approach that works well because many in Slovakia are suspicious of all things religious. Please pray that both of these weeks will be well received, and that the many relationships that are in place between members of our team and young people in Trencin would be deepened. Pray that believers in Trencin would be encouraged and that many would come to faith.
The third and fourth weeks will be spend in the towns of Liptovsky Mikulas and Kvachany respectively. These will be ‘Bible’ weeks hosted by the churches of these two towns (half the team went to Kvachany last year). Pray that God would establish and deepen relationships through these two camps.
Pray for the team as they travel this week. They will be meeting at the church at 11:20 a.m. on Thursday, and you are welcome to come and give them hugs and prayers. They will fly out of Bush Intercontinental at 4:20 p.m. Thursday and arrive in Vienna at 1:10 PM Friday (local time), with a change of planes in London.
Finally, pray for each of the team members. We recently picked verses from among God’s promises and Paul’s prayers that exemplified how we’d like to be prayed for. Please pray these Scriptures back to God for us:
2 Thessalonians 1:11-12
2 Peter 3:16-17
