Another "Semester" is in the books.

We call our "Bi-Monthly" coaching sessions "Semesters".  I don't know why.  When I think "semester" I think of two units in a year.  We meet with the churches we're coaching every other month for 14 months and call each session a "Semester".  Again, I don't know why.

But I digress.  We just finished our Third Semester with the church we're coaching in Kalush and I have to say I think it was the best.  I absolutely meant it when I shared with the whole church Sunday morning that with each successive visit I love their kids and Youth Leadership team more and more.

I'm sure that's the reason why this past weekend was so much fun.  We're starting to get to know them and they're getting to know us.  Their leaders and their students are sponges soaking up the training and working hard to implement the strategy.

When we go back in April for the 4th "Semester" we get to do something with them all day Saturday "just for  fun" in order to both emphasize the importance of fellowship in their team and to give us all a little break.  You know? Teams that play together stay together.  That's the idea.

It's hard to imagine a weekend being more fun than this last one was though.

Be in prayer for them.  Their teenagers face all the issues kids back in the States face with one really noticeable difference: Most Protestant churches here are likened to a "sect" which really makes sharing their faith a challenge.
