This afternoon the team from Bethel Church in Houston (Texas) will land in Bologna's Airport to help us for the Exch@nge Camp for teens organized in partnership by
Youth for Christ Italia and our church-plant Impatto A Budrio.
The team is made by 4 leaders:
Meagan, Erica, Michael and Rodney
And 9 teens:
Rebecca, Sarah, Stephen, Philip, Parker, Jesse, John, Spencer and Daniel.
They all come from Bethel Church in Houston which is one of the supporting church of our friends Jesse & Tricia Marcos, the leaders of Campus Crusade Bologna.
On Monday we'll start our first Exch@nge camp in Budrio.
We have now 21 Italian teens booked, and thanks to the generosity of our friends from the UK we were able to offer the camp to 5 boys from a "safe home" (2 of them are Muslims), 1 girl signalled us by the social services and other teens whose families couldn't afford it.
On Monday we'll play Sharks & Minnows, Frisbee, Basketball, Aerobics, Volleyball, some silly games and water games.
Following a clip from the movie Gravity Stefano will give the first talk on Luke 12:13-21 challenging kids to think about how do we see the self sufficiency of the foolish man?
In the afternoon Jenny will lead the English class with another clip from Gravity and a lesson on Space Vocabulary. We'll also watch a clip from Glee on Defying Gravity!
Please join us in prayer for protection during the games and wisdom during the talk.
May the Lord use every moment of this camp to talk to the hearts of these kids!
