Summer Music Camp Update

Plans to transform a former Soviet youth camp site into a music camp came to a halt recently as political events affected volunteers' ability to continue with renovations. 

Rainbow Camp was to host MIWC's program in July.

The MIWC teaching team was assembled and working on camp details when the decision was made by the Christian & Missionary Alliance to cancel their construction team trips for May.

The C&MA considered the uncertainty of travel and air safety combined with the recent harassment of U.S. missionaries living in Russia, where two C&MA workers were asked to leave.

Without a location to hold the camp, MIWC has postponed its summer music camps until 2015. Continue to pray for God's will in this, especially as the turmoil in Eastern Europe feels overwhelming.

The current conflict only underscores the incredible spiritual needs present in Russia and strengthens our resolve to bring the light of the Gospel of Christ to that country.
