Camp has begun. The 3 guys in my room keep saying my name while speaking Slovene, waiting for my to shake my head cuz I have no idea what they're saying. And I love it haha.
Many pictures to follow. Gorgeous area in Austria. #jvupsidedown #mariborenglishcamp
Drava River here earlier today. so cool this river runs through Maribor!
we start orientation tomorrow, and English camp starts Sunday! kids are still able to sign up & would love for you to join us in praying for more!! pray also for God to work in the hearts of kids attending as we tell them about Jesus. #jvupsidedown
I got to walk around the city with an agnostic student here discussing both the depravity and purpose of man- during which seeing an unreal sunset. stoked to be involved in what God's doing in eastern europe. if you think of it, please pray for our camps coming up that God would bring as many students as possible! #jvupsidedown
this is Tim (pronounced Teem here) one of the missionaries sons here in Maribor. I am now confident I know the 3 cutest babies currently alive on earth. my nephew obviously ranking at #1 (@matthewjdixon & @sarahcorrine), Shiloh (@corymcramer & @kristinemcramer) and Tim here. Gymboree & Baby Gap would take over the world with these kids.
the one & only, legendary Papa Dix. unbelievably thankful for my dad. he's been stronger than I've ever seen him before these last few months. he has taught, mentored, corrected, and affirmed me for 23 years- not to mention taught me a PLETHORA of cheesy jokes. and constantly setting an example to me of a man who knows & loves God. love you dad!! and thanks for not answering any of my calls from the other side of the world!
this is Andre, and the currently under renovation youth room we'll be using all summer. I got to sing with students last night at our Fusion club & listen to Andre talk to them about Jesus in Slovene. I am so pumped to be a part of what God's doing in this country.
HASHTAG STORY PORTRAIT. this is Dan- so stoked for this guy to be serving in Albania this summer. huge example to be serving completely alone & still be so eager. plus stoked he'll be helping out 2 of my best friends @corymcramer & @kristinemcramer!! #jvupsidedown
