Slovakia Prayer Guide :: August 1–4

Our 2BC Slovakia Team is preparing to wrap up their are a few prayer requests they have as they finish strong and begin to head home.
Thank you for your prayers!

Friday, August 1 – The week’s work ends with each family receiving a family photo --- the children have made photo frames as projects during the week, Shane has used a one-hour-photo shop to develop a photos of each family as a lasting gift.  Tonight we will end our time in Vazec with a cook-out at the home of Danka, a local leader of Jekh Drom, and a woman who has faced local ridicule for her work with Roma. Pray for Danka, her husband, and their teen-age son (who like American kids feels the sting of comments from his peers because of his mom’s compassionate leadership).


Saturday, August 2 – Today the group transitions to Krakow, Poland, where the focus moves to culture and history. In the afternoon, the group may opt to visit Schindler’s Factory, made famous in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film Schindler’s List (required viewing as preparation for the group). As you consider the news of this day, pray for those who are persecuted for no reason other than being who they are.               

Sunday, August 3 – Today the group visits Auschwitz and Birkenau where more than 1,100,000 men, women, and children lost their lives because of the Nazis. Many of these exterminated were Roma. The number of persons murdered is almost equal to the total populations of the City of Kansas City (467K); the City of St. Louis (318K); Clay County, Missouri (230K); and Madison County, IL (267K) combined. Pray for the group as they process the Auschwitz xperience.   (caption = “Work Sets You Free”)     

Monday, August 4 – The group returns home. Pray for safe travel. Pray each will have a broadened understanding of our complex world and the ever simple message of God’s love for all people. Pray for yourself as you continue your own journey of being the presence of Christ wherever you go and whomever you meet today and tomorrow.
