The Christian Church in Ostróda held their worship at the camp today for a special baptism service. Ben was able to help serve communion and we were able to witness four baptisms. Three of them were planned a couple expecting their second child and a young man, whose wife asked at the last minute if she could be baptized as well. It was beautiful.
My friend Iwona surprised me! With the church service being held on the camp grounds, I wasn’t sure she would make it. But she was able to get care for her two girls and a ride and I got to spend several hours visiting with her. ♥ Her youngest, Zosia even got to join us for a little play in the water after lunch! Please be in prayer for Zosia and her parents. She has a sort of infection that could affect her brain. She sees a neurologist for an MRI on Thursday.
The rest of the day was just that… rest. 13 American’s arrived yesterday (a team from Georgia, 2 interns, and our family) who are all struggling with a bit of jet lag so it was nice to have a chance to relax, get to know each other and even take a nap.
Today was about worship and relationship. Tomorrow will be physical labor as we flip the camp and begin preparing for the arrival of the Holocaust Survivors on Tuesday.
So happy to be here at our home away from home.
