Lots of love, lemonade, and laughs - that's the way the week could be summed up. The Youth group from Vestiva Hills Baptist Church, Birmingham, AL and four members of Team Tag (CBF Student.Go summer missionaries) spent a week in Tuzser, Hungary providing a Backyard Bible Camp for the Roma students. Each day we had over 150 kids squeezed into a tiny room for energetic singing, a interactive Bible story, a fun craft, and a yummy snack. The day concluded with games in a nearby field. Two evenings we held a "Teen Night" when only teens were allowed in the church. The young men and women enjoyed having a time just for them and hearing the testimonies of the American youth. It was difficult to say good bye when the last day arrived. The message of God's love, joy, and acceptance rang clear as we shouted our farewells. It was a fantastic week!
