In the buildup to the July 9 departure for the team to the Czech Republic, the first recipient of the 2012 Timothy Project, already has a story to share – and on this side of the pond.
The Cherry Hills Community Church Czech Initiative teams expect to have 25-30 players ages 15-20 attending the inaugural soccer camp from July 16th through the 20th. While the Timothy Project has been used to help provide soccer balls for the players, the team will be doing a lot more. Working alongside Czech coaches and leaders there will be a special time for camp participants. On the Tuesday afternoon of the camp,there will be an outdoor adventure training and focus on manhood. A Christian guest speaker from Prague will challenge the campers physically outdoors and then back at the church will share a message on manhood. The men on the CHCC Czech Initiative team will the follow up the next day in sharing a struggle or fear with campers – giving practical application and insight in how they dealt with it.
Please pray for the CHCC Czech Initiative team which is made up of four adult coaches and five teenage players who will integrate themselves into the camp along with the Czech teenage campers. The preparation for the trip has already had some lasting impact, below is an email from parents of one of the teenage team members:
“I am especially appreciative of the tremendous spiritual influence … on [his] faith walk. He certainly has matured spiritually in the past 12 months, but these meetings in preparation for the missions trip have been equally as helpful. So thank you … stay encouraged by the important role you play in young people’s lives.”
And CrossTraining thanks its supporters – because you are having an impact in this young man’s life and this team’s life, too.
