The campus was a good deal quieter and less energetic this afternoon with the departure of our Global Outreach team, off to lead a 6 day New Heights-style camp for the incoming freshmen of the CCE high school. The EFL team and the Slovak students have enjoyed so much having their lively participation in class during our morning sessions the past week. We are excited for their opportunity to serve in this way, but also a little sad to see them go! We look forward to visiting them at the camp on Wednesday.
They are well-prepared for their responsibilities, but have asked for prayer in some specific ways:
1. That they will work well and cohesively with the Slovak leaders as a highly functioning team.
2. That they will have ample energy, patience, and stamina for the very long hours required of them with very little rest.
3. That they will portray the love of Christ fully and that language will not be a barrier in accomplishing any of the above.
Pictured here are some of the team meeting and greeting students as they wait for the departure of the bus.
