In one month we will be welcoming Colombian participants and leaders, along with volunteers from the USA who will come together for one week of English immersion in an experience known as Covenant English Camp. Last year was the first time we helped to host an English camp and it was a success. Colombians often express their desire to have more opportunities to learn English and practice with native English speakers. This combined with teams that have experience in teaching and participating in English camps prompted the first Covenant English Camp last year and now we are preparing for the second.

This year the team coming from the States to serve is a tangible example of churches coming together in mission. One couple from California, who helped teach in the camp last year, will be leading the team that is made up of people from Lakehills Covenant Church (El Dorado Hills, CA), River City Christian (Sacramento, CA), and Roseville Covenant Church (Roseville, MN). We are thankful for the team that God has brought together and ask for your prayers as they continue to prepare, receive training, and get ready to come and serve. We are also thankful for the team of Colombian leaders that has been meeting and has received training to serve in this English Camp. The countdown is on and there are endless details to still attend to in preparation for the camp. Our prayer as we are in preparation mode is that during the Covenant English Camp as participants are engaged in language learning, they will make new friendships with the people they are learning alongside of, and that God’s love will be experienced by all.

Ashley traveled to Minnesota from California to train the team on the curriculum they will be using
