Sponsoring summer camp Ukraine

A few weeks ago we announced our project summer camp Ukraine 2012 on this blog. Each year the camp is being organized by Teen Challenge Ukraine in cooperation with a Messianic Jewish congregation. A gift of 20 euro (about $25) was enough to pay for one person to attend the summer camp.

We are delighted to announce that we were able to donate 240 euro towards this camp. It may not seem like a large amount according to western standards, but when converted to human lives.... it means that, thanks to your help and generosity, we were able to pay for 12 people to attend summer camp.

Most of them are men and women who are currently living in Christian drugs- and alcohol rehabilitation homes all over the Ukraine. They have never been on vacation before and having fun and fellowship is a real blessing for them.

The photo's show how much fun they are having this week and how the love of Christ is able to change any man or woman! Maybe this was not a grand, earth chattering project, but it was certainly one with eternal impact. Wow, just seeing these pictures makes us very happy. Thank you so much for helping us.

PS: In August there will be another summer camp in Ukraine, so it is still possible to donate. Please make your gift payable to:
