BENEFITING: CENTREVILLE BAPTIST CHURCH
EVENT DATE: Jul 04, 2013
In July, my son Jack and I are traveling to minister to teenegers in Podgorica, Montenegro. Just miles outside of the center city there is a poverty stricken refugee camp of the Roma/Ashkali people group. These people are refugees from the Kosovo war in 1999 that have been forced from their homeland and have fled to Montenegro. For the past 13 years they have received little support from the government and struggle to survive in their unimaginable living conditions. Many shun these people and label them as gypsies, but my church has an ongoing relationship and we call them beautiful and special.
We will put around 40 teenagers on a bus and take them to a mountain retreat. They love this chance to get away from the refugee camp. There we will minister to them with games, crafts, laughter, lessons on the love and hope in Christ, and lots of singing and dancing!
Jack and I both need to raise $1600 and would like to give you an opportunity to support us as we go on our first international trip with a mission to share the transforming message of the gospel to these poor yet very dear people.
