In cooperation with the Kreuzberg Project, Gerry Peak is taking a team to Berlin to gain first-hand knowledge about the refugee crisis and how churches and Christians can get involved. The team will learn about our mission partner “The Refugio” which ministers to refugees and brings hope and shalom to people in crisis and leads people to Christ. Pray for the team and those with whom they come in contact, that God would be glorified through their encounter. They return June 30.
John and Marilyn Whittemore head to Ukraine for two summer camps – one for orphans and disadvantaged children ages 10-14 and another for older disadvantaged kids and graduates of the orphanages. A team of seven adults and three children from Campus Outreach Thailand will join them again this year. Pray for hearts to be open to learn of Jesus as they play and study together. Pray for safe travel, stamina, and health of the team.
