Team Building in Budapest!

Last week we had a great time at YWAM Budapest, Hungary enjoying a week of teaching on team building and outreach preparation. Nic and Marion Barella, an American/English couple who are on staff with YWAM Budapest, were our teachers and they did a great job helping us to reflect on our different gifts and passions and then challenging us to think about how we can use all of these gifts together on outreach in Bosnia. It was a very helpful week full of discoveries about one another and some practical information on how to prepare for the next two months. We discovered that many of us have hearts for people in need and I am sure that this is not by mistake J I am eager to see how this gifting will come out and be used as we serve in Bosnia.

<--- There you can see us doing a fun team building activity. Trying to get all six of us on one piece of paper! Good times! :)

"All that is not the love of God has no meaning for me. I can truthfully say that I have no interest in anything but the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. If God wants it to, my life will be useful through my word and witness. If He wants it to, my life will bear fruit through my prayers and sacrifices. But the usefulness of my life is His concern, not mine. It would be indecent of me to worry about that."
