Obedient Heart Camp for Orphans

The education department of the IPO Hope to people, the ministers of the Second Presbyterian Church of Memphis and a team of Christian volunteers conducted an evangelistic sports camp for orphans of Ukraine from July 4 to July 11, 2018, at Polyana, Transcarpathian region.

The camp named "Perlina" was held for 44 orphans from Mizoch, Klevan, Verba, Tuchin and Alexandria.

Every day, children were sitting under the preaching about the character of Jesus Christ. Beyond that, they had Bible lessons in small groups, learned to glorify God and thank Him in songs and prayers, they had crafts, sporting events, as well as admired the beautiful nature and local sights.

We believe that the sown Word will bear fruit in due time. Our hearts are filled with gratitude to each of you, dear friends, for prayers, support and participation in this ministry!

The theme of this Christian camp was "Obedient Heart."

On the first day of the camp, there was a delightful acquaintance with one another. Not everyone liked the busy schedule at first, but at the end of the camp they understood why it is necessary to live by such a schedule, because we had to manage to hurry through the whole curriculum for such a short notice. Many teenagers saw the beauty of the Carpathians for the first time, and they read about the hot springs only on the Internet. Every day has begun and ended with prayer. We thanked God for what we saw in the each new day. In the morning, we had Bible classes, where we studied about Jesus Christ that He is the Son of God, bringing up the question – if Jesus is the Lord, then what does that mean for me? Namely He has the eternal life! God is the source of life and He is being revealed to us through the Bible. The primary task for teenagers was to think why He came to the earth? He is 100% God and 100% human being. Jesus Christ is the Almighty, the Great Teacher, the Lamb of God and the King. We elaborated on what He did, how He taught, whom He taught. During the snack, they discussed the lessons and sermons, shared experiences and blessings. Every day before lunch, there was morning worship and crafts. After lunch, children could play various sports games, visit the thermal pools (water park), royal saunas, and after dinner they praised God again in their songs and prayers, as well as listened to God's Word.

Here are the children’s feedbacks:

• “Thanks to the camp, I learned more about God, His righteousness and mercy. Through communication with the group leader and through preaching, God gave us His wisdom and taught us a lot. In this camp, God stirred my heart. God has blessed us in the camp. He loves us all. Thank you.” Sofia G.

• “In this camp, we were taught to believe in God. Every day we heard the testimonies of boys and girls who were reconciled to God. We glorified God through songs, poems, and prayers. There were interesting games and auction, crafts and sermons. I liked the camp very much. Thanks a lot.” Lera S.

• “Thank you very much for the opportunity to be in such a camp, listen to the Word of God, learn a lot about God and the Bible. Hot sources, a gym and games are good addition to the program. I love my Lord and King, He is Almighty indeed. Please touch every heart in the camp. I love You and ask You to forgive my sin.” Yulya L.

• “I learned a lot about God and Jesus Christ in this camp, as well as I got to see myself from the different angle, and was able to look at my life in a fresh way. I liked this camp and I want to go to camp again. I like to play tennis, swim in swimming pools. While listening to the parable of the prodigal son, the Good Samaritan, I decided to read Bible more often and pray more. Thank you for this camp.” Dmitriy N.

• “Thank you very much for the given opportunities to meet new people and for everything you gave us! I want to return to your camp again. I liked the Bible lessons, where I learned more about God. I really liked the excursions, games, auction. The group leader told us a lot about the Bible and life. Thank you for the people who surrounded me in the camp. Thanks a lot to the team.” Nick V.

This camp deepened our relations with teenagers from Mizoch, Klevan, Alexandria, Tuchin and Verba, and also helped to strike up new ones. We were able to give out to each camper a Bible in Ukrainian, and books that we are going to read and discuss together in the Viber group. The team thanks God for the opportunity to serve orphans and build relationships, and for the opportunity to share the Gospel and show them the way to God through Jesus Christ.

We ask you to pray for the hearts that heard the Gospel in the camp, for their revival, for families who let the children to go to the Christian camp, and for the further work with these children. Please pray for teenagers who repented in this camp and decided to follow Jesus Christ.

We thank all the brothers and sisters who took part in the Christian camp, and please join us everyone, who wants to serve through the Word or work, or a prayer for socially unprotected teenagers and children.
