As I write, Dan and Cindy Williams, along with their son John are preparing to leave this Thursday for Ukraine. Pray for them and for us as we start kid's camp at our church in Bucha on Monday the 14th. Dan will be our camp pastor, Cindy will teach English and John will work with Leah in sports. We have an exciting week planned for the kids on the theme of Creation. We have 4 bases the kids rotate through; sports, English, music and crafts. This year we are doing albums as the craft. Every child will go home on Saturday with a book that illustrates the theme for the week (including a recap of each days message), verses for each day in English and Ukrainian, pictures of them, camp workers, all camp base groups, and various camp activities. At the end we will include pasted in a gospel tract so this will be a powerful witnessing tool under the guise of "showing off what I did at camp this year." Parents will keep these books forever as they will have photos of their kids, which parents don't have many of here.
Camp finishes on Saturday and then on Sunday the Williams start camp at Belichi. Poor Dan and Cindy, pray for their strength. They will be camping in tents at the river all week.
