Team Testimonials:

"Being able to serve tangibly is a wonderful experience—to take joy in serving and partnering with God and to see the opportunity as a blessing."
"I am encouraged by how God works through the collective. It can be easy to think about how I benefited personally, but it wasn't about me, it's about bringing glory to God and we can do that so much better when we are united for His purpose."
"I was encouraged to hear how Mama Bernik did not even like the Gypsies in the beginning and she has grown to love them. It was a testimony to how God can change a heart."

Rain, Frisbees and Pancakes!

We began our second camp today.  This was our opportunity to be there from start to finish.  The weather was challenging with pouring rain.  We huddled under tents and sang many Ukranian songs.  The kids were "cooperative" in gypsy terms and they loved our beading craft.  Apparently some 15 year
