Pray for our Chech Team

5 from GraceSLO will be traveling to the Czech Republic on July 26. . . . from the left. . . Donna, Sarah, Annie, Eli and Jim. They will be partnering with a church in Litvinov and the missions organization Josiah Venture to put on an English Camp for 8 days. Here's how they describe their trip . . .

The needs are great in Czech. Still feeling the aftermath of the fall of communism, there is a tremendous need to build up churches and reach the Czech youth. Our team from Grace has a great opportunity to come alongside the local ministry of Josiah Venture ( to help build local youth ministries and develop youth leaders to reach their country. One of the effective strategies has been to have the churches and Josiah Venture Missionaries invite students from the community and schools to English camps. At the camp they experience a youth camp environment along with 3 hours of English class. Through building relationships with the Czech students, discussion groups, evening talks, sports times, hiking, and a lot of fun, many of the students are exposed to genuine, Biblical Christianity for the first time. But the outreach doesn’t stop when camp is over. After the students return to their hometown, they are invited to the church youth group events and continue the relationships built at camp with students from the church youth group. It makes for great follow-up.

The Chech Team has set up a blog so you can follow their trip at

Let's purpose to pray for them together from July 26 until their return on August 12.
