Every year as we solidify the team that will give up two weeks of their summer to invest in the lives of young people in the Czech Republic, I give them a warning and a promise.
God will stretch your faith and you will see Him perform miracles.
This year’s trip has already been no different.
Up until a few weeks ago, the team was struggling to believe God would come through financially. Donations were down, plane ticket prices were up, and it was discouraging to see week after week only a few hundred dollars come in, when we needed a few thousand.
The deadline to purchase our plane tickets was quickly approaching, and we only had the money to purchase one ticket, when we needed four — it was getting very discouraging.
But God was setting us up for something amazing.
Our team pushed through in prayer, asking God to open doors to speak in churches and have conversations with family and friends. Two weeks ago, we were sitting at needing $6,000 to buy our plane tickets.
In one week, over $6,000 came in.
God performed a miracle.
We are happy and excited to announce that as of Saturday, April 26, we purchased plane tickets for all four team members!! This always gives a sense of confidence among the team members — we really are going.
We would like to thank all of you who have prayed for and donated towards this year’s trip to the Czech Republic. Because of your overwhelming generosity, we have been able to purchase the plane tickets and finalize some details of the trip.
The stretching isn’t over yet, though. While we are rejoicing in the over $6,000 God gave us in a week, the team as a whole still needs $2,000 total to cover outreaches, food, and lodging.
If you have been considering donating to the trip, there is still a need! We ask that you pray about how you can help support our team as we reach out to youth in the most atheistic country in the world.
