As you know, we had winter camp in Communar, I have already written about it, so I am just going to give a little summary. We realize that nowadays Christianity has to move away from projects and come back to the basics of the New Testament Church, when relationships and people were important.
But at the same time, I can see that we all have very little time. That is why now we are reevaluating preacher format and concept of taking care of each other inside the Church.
Time inexorably passes by and the summer is coming closer. In the summer we are having baptism for out wonderful teenagers. In January we had 2 meeting with them about baptism and we continue helping them get ready for the most serious decision in their lives.
There is a great application for mobile phones and tablets. That application has got Bible texts in different versions. We have inspired children from our club to read Bible every day and to finish the whole Bible during 2017.
We can follow each other’s activity through that application as well as recommend verses to each other. All in all, we are on the right way! The next step will be inspiring teenagers to start preaching themselves.
As always, we have anti-cafe meetings, where we invite new children and our acquaintances. Everything is very cheerful in Petrozavodsk, too. We have had a big game tournament called “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:21).
Children have to play, have to laugh. That is their direct responsibility written in human rights. Since children in our clubs are from unprivileged families, they especially need laughter and happiness.
And, of course, we have daily meetings, help children with their homework, pray, sing, tell Bible stories. And every Sunday there is service.
