Oh, friends, this is precious. Please, please take six minutes to watch this video of scenes from the past two summer camps. With all the tragedy and brokenness in the news right now, such happy scenes of pure joy are a welcome breath of fresh air. I can’t wait to meet these dear souls in a couple of months! (You will recognize Evgenia from my last post. Catherine’s daughter, Jackie, provides the translation of his remarks. He has completely captured my heart!)
I’ll be back soon with more posts, including stories about the difficult tasks the moms face and what we hope to provide for them at camp, more camper introductions, and a special story about Kostya, the first disabled young man Zhanna visited fifteen years ago and how that relationship led to this beautiful ministry.
THANK YOU for praying, giving toward camp scholarships, and sharing this opportunity with others. I’m convinced every single bit of it matters more than any of us could possibly know.
