Champs Camp III
Held June 17-20, Champs Camp was again a great success this summer. We thank God for His blessings in this event. We had several Americans who came to lend their talents, as well as their native English. We also had many Croatian volunteers from several different churches, without whom this program would be impossible. The program was again sponsored by Biblijski institut, as a service to our community.
This year was our biggest camp so far, with 80 children registered
! It seemed that the camp was full of joy, even though it was very hot. For four days the children had a great time playing games, hearing stories from the Bible, making crafts, singing songs, and having lots of fun. The theme of the camp was "God is My Rock
." A new aspect of the camp we added this year was having some of the children from previous years (who are now too old to be campers themselves) to help with the camp. We then did some special activities with just these teenagers for three days after the camp was over. It was a great time together for all of us, and we are looking forward to similar events in the future.
Pastoral Care Seminar Class
Dr. John Cooke's intensive seminar course on the topic, "Pastoral Counseling," as part of the undergraduate and graduate studies at Biblijski institut, was held from May 31 to June 6. As usual, Dr. Cooke's class was well received by our students, and was also attend by some from the larger church community.
A Christian student conference, Srcokret, was again held this fall, October 31 – November 3. Biblijski institut was involved with an information table and display.
