I greet you with the Grace and Love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for praying and supporting us.
With God's help, our church"Emmanuel" was able to spend a six-day camp for children and adolescents. The theme of the camp was "What is good and what is bad" based on the 10 commandments. There were 66 children in total. There was a good team of 13 young leaders. Every day I drove children from different places to the camp. I brought all that was needed for the kitchen products. Alla coordinated this camp. It was a very blessed time.
On the seventh day, on Sunday, we made a final meeting for parents and children. The children sang and recited Bible verses which they had been learned for six days for parents. We also interviewed the children about what they liked in the camp or what they took for themselves. The children answered very interestingly and in different ways. One of the boys who was in the teenage group said: "that there is no need to sin and you need to trust Jesus and hallow Sunday."
There were three groups: one for kids from 4 years to 7 years. The second for children from 8 years to 10 years. Third from 11 to 16 years. They had been taught lectures at their level.
When they made a program for their parents, I had a thankful and encouraging word for them. Parents of unbelievers were 12 people. And this is a blessing to us. When Alla explained to the parents the commandments that the children taught, they very much listened with great attention.
Thank God that we were able to spend this camp with His help. There were a lot of problems before the camp, but He helped solve everything.
Also, we were visited by Brother Sasha Pastushak to make beautiful photos of our camp. Thank God and for him.
Thank you for helping us financially and morally. Blessings to you and may God always be with you.
Yours faithfully, the missionary Valera Popov.
