Oak Hall in the Balkans – the 66th Journey

An Epic Journey

On Monday 21st June, an Oak Hall coach will be heading out towards the Balkans.  With stops planned in Croatia, Bosnia, central and south Serbia, this is going to be an epic journey.

 

Meeting Key Leaders in the Balkans

We will particularly focus on meeting with the students, team and graduates of the Bible College that began back in 1996 following five years of bringing aid into the region during the civil war…  Many of the graduates are involved in strategic front-line work where they are sharing with those around them about the risen Lord Jesus and His restoring, sin-forgiving touch on the lives of those who entrust themselves to Him.

 

Bringing Humanitarian Aid and the Message of Hope

We will also visit five refugee camps and one very poor “slum” area – all places where we have long-term relationships and where graduates of the Bible College work.  In five of these we will hand-deliver humanitarian aid.

 

Please Pray…

Please pray that we would be a clear witness to those who have not yet met Jesus Christ and an encouragement to those who are already walking with Him.

We pray that all of us will grow closer to the Lord Jesus through the combination of evening Bible studies, time together and meeting followers of Christ from other cultures.  We pray that we will return home with a greater commitment to pray for the Balkans and the Church of Jesus Christ here.  Please pray that each person will return from the journey challenged, changed and inspired to faithfully stand for the Lord Jesus in the places where He has put each of us.

We will travel thousands of miles overland and sleep most nights in tents – all with a diverse, cross-cultural team.  There are bound to be many unforeseen adventures and opportunities for us to grow over these next days.

We plan to use this blog and also a Facebook group – YU66 – to keep those who want to know “posted”.
