Spring in Slovakia

Greetings from Slovakia and Happy Easter!  We pray that you, like us, had a meaningful time this weekend with family and friends.

We want to give some quick updates on several activities from the last few weeks, and we want to ask for some specific prayers in the weeks ahead.


In the past few weeks...

We celebrated Easter as a family with our friends and church family - including both American and Slovak Easter traditions. (photo: Our girls helped lead Easter Sunday worship with the other children from the Roma church)
We attended a training in February for Community Health Evangelism, and we are now qualified as CHE trainers - we hope to hold a training session this spring for some of our local partners.

We continued to enjoy our English clubs with the students at the Roma school in Kosice, and have begun a video exchange "Adopt-a-Class" project with some groups in the U.S.
We continued with our regular activities in the village of Rankovce, including discipleship groups and weekly English classes. (photo: Easter egg hunt with the girls' discipleship group in Rankovce)
We also attended a meeting with our CBF colleagues and teammates, which included times of work, prayer, learning and encouragement. (photo: The Central European Team and families)

Please Pray...

...for continued energy in our ongoing activities - that we would be able to communicate God's word and love clearly, and that God would lead us to those with open hearts.

...for wisdom as we seek the best way and time to hold a CHE training here in Slovakia in the coming months.
 
...for the three teams that will be visiting us this spring - that team members will have open hearts to serve and learn, that those who receive them here would do so with love and joy!

...for many Roma communities near Kosice that are experiencing outbreaks of flu and other illnesses.
