The final preparations are being made before leaving for Volleyball camp in Riga, Latvia on Thursday. Camp registrations continue to come in and the team is preparing for a great camp.
Thank you to everyone who has come up and told us that you have been praying for us. It means so much to know that every detail of this trip is bathed in prayer. We feel so supported by the members of Suburban.
Please continue to pray:
For travel. Carol, Brian, Erik and Marci will be traveling from Portland. Laura will be traveling from the Philippines. Tayla will be traveling from Texas. We all arrive at different times so there will be some coordination needed. Pray for safe travels and that we will adjust quickly to time change as we will be adjusting from several different time zones.
For the Coaches. Some of the Latvian coaches will be back from last year’s camp, but there will also be some new faces. Pray that communications and coordination of activities goes well. Pray that we are sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit throughout the day during gym sessions and meal breaks.
For the Campers. We expect that there will be several kids returning from last year’s camp. We are excited to renew our relationships with them and to meet new campers. Pray that their hearts will be ready to receive what God has for them at this year’s camp.
For the Lunch Program. We have a 2 hours lunch break and have planned a variety of activities to build relationships with the kids and share what following Christ means to us. Marci will be working with Mattis from Matthews Church on activities to best utilize this valuable teaching time.
For Erik, as he connects with people from Matthews Church and gathers information for the creation of the timeline gift to be presented to Matthews Church at their 150th Anniversary Celebration.
Again, thank you all for your continued support. We will try and post updates often during our trip.
