God has used SpeakOut again! 12 guys and 14 girls prayed to receive Christ from the two SpeakOut Camps. Every year I look forward to the miracle of who and how God will open the eyes of different students.
I was given some great guys in my 2 tutor group. None of them prayed to receive Christ but they all learned about God and saw His love for them during the camp. The guys in my groups the second week were all very open to talk about spiritual things. I really fell in love with those guys and am excited to hang out with them soon in Kosice. One of the guys had come to SpeakOut a year ago and then by â€œchanceâ€ lived with a Christian family for the last year in America. He could clearly see that God was pursuing Him but he was resisting Him. But on the last morning, minutes before leaving, he came to me and said that he asked God to reveal Himself to him. Please be praying for him to accept Christ as his Lord and Savior.
God also worked in Dara and I's life during SpeakOut. It is a very demanding time for our family in many ways. We are living in a hotel and trying to grow and train our children at the same time loving on many students. God is so faithful to grow us spiritually. I can see every year through SpeakOut how God is growing me. He is always working on my patience and helping me to enjoy Him and the people around me more.
A Need: We are looking for young lady to help us with our 4 wonderful children at SpeakOut next year. Just let us know if anyone comes to mind.
