Creative efforts by our children

At the end of July we 4 travel to Sarajevo, Bosnia, for 10 days of outreach. It'll be so different from either the Philippines or China! It is designed for young people and families, and these 2-1/2 weeks of the training camp and outreach will be milestone marks in our kids' walk with God and love for other people (please pray with us for that!!!)

Now that they are getting a little older, Elisa and Jonathan have taken initiative to raise money to cover their outreach expenses. We have already purchased the flights, so the remaining costs are £220/person.

Elisa and her friend / Bosnia outreach teammate had the unique idea of doing a sponsored midnight walk on the Malvern Hills, which is about an hour's drive from here. This last Friday they bundled up after youth group and headed out with their dads for a 2-hour hike through this beauty spot. Although they were rained on and got a little lost, it was a lot of fun ... especially arriving back home at 3:44am!

Jonathan appealed to the sweet-tooth of our friends at church today by selling brownies, chocolate chip cookies and carrot cake cup cakes which we made this morning. He was well supported and the goodies were appreciated. If you would like to make a donation to Jonathan for a virtual tasty treat, he'd be honoured to send you a picture of one!!
