Ways to Stay Connected to Summer ESL Campers

We can’t thank our volunteers enough for giving their time and gifts for God’s glory and touching the lives of our summer ESL campers with the love and mercy of Christ! It’s hard to miss that He’s been at work in the lives of these children, and it’s our sincere hope and prayer that He’ll continue to use us together as His hands and feet in nurturing the seeds that have been sown in their hearts and building bridges into their families! 

Two of our main ministry goals going forward are for us to get together once a month to pray for our campers and their families, and to maintain regular contact with them. Please let us know which meeting time works better for you - a weekday night from 6:15-7:15 p.m., or Sunday mornings during the middle hour, from 9:45-10:45 a.m.

If you didn’t serve with us this summer you can still get involved with our campers!
We’ll be happy to meet with you one-on-one to give you some background and help you make that connection.

Please let us know which child/family you would like to deepen your relationship with. Some connections are already taking place. These campers are still looking for connections:
  - Zawadi
  - Daniel
  - Fanny
  - Alejandro
  - Oksana
  - Bohdan
  - Yulliia
  - Iryna
  - Roman
  - Meshack
  - Jaques
  - Bovick
  - Victoir

Thank you again so much for reaching out to strangers in our midst! 

Blessings in Christ!
