Missions Monday! Pre-summer camp Albania

But Jesus said “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” Matthew 19:14 NLT

Mission Without Borders offers summer camps for thousands of disadvantaged children in each of the six field countries in Eastern Europe. For many of these children this is a welcome respite from a difficult childhood. Some of these children are abandoned, some are from the Family Sponsorship program, but all participants are treated to 10 days of healthy, delicious meals, outdoor play, crafts, and lessons about the God Who loves them unconditionally.

A child from Romania wrote that, “It is so nice here! I wish I could live here with my parents and brothers and sisters. I love the food and the children are really nice.” He had the opportunity to participate in a play with other campers.

The camp director talked about the camp, “It is... the first time he has been out of the village where he was born and the first time he has socialized with different people. He has already learnt some moral and spiritual lessons which are totally new to him. The camp’s theme is “How to Live According to God’s Will and How to Develop Correct Christian Attitudes.”
