This week, Ignite played host to one of the young men we’ve ministered to during our annual mission trip to the Czech Republic.
Adam Hlavka, of Dolni Tosanovice, Czech Republic, made a detour after a mission trip to New York City to come visit us in Monmouth. He is one of the young men we met on our first mission trip to Czech in 2008, and has stepped up to serve each time we’ve returned. In his own words:
The American team led by Jason Vana in summer 2009 changed my life immensely. He brought a couple of young people over to Czech and I honestly never felt more interest than from them. Especially Jason invested in my life a lot. Even though I spent only like two weeks with him he got to encourage and support me as no one before him.
Adam had the opportunity to attend our Ignite Monmouth gathering, visit with students who came on the 2009 and 2011 mission trips, hang out on campus and even witnessed to students who have some of the hardest hearts towards God – and saw breakthrough happen in their lives.
It has been an honor having Adam visit our group, speak life into our students, and share about the impact we are making in Czech.
Then he prayed this:
It was an amazing opportunity to have Adam visit and pray for us this week, and an incredible mark of the ministry we are doing around the world.
This is why we go to Czech: to see young people like Adam encouraged, equipped and walking into the call God has on their lives.
