Even if we have 99 young people at our youth group Jesus would still care for the one that is missing there. “It is not those who are well who need a physician, but those who are sick.” Luke 5:31.
On Friday, the 21st of October, we started another part of The School of leaders. This time it was in Banská Bystrica. We drove two hundred miles to get to there. There were three of us, Denisa, Miriam and Daniel. On Saturday Zac and Josh also came to help us. On Friday we were able to be part of the youth group meeting, which was special, because the younger kids from church could join us. Janka, the leader of the Dorast ministry, spoke about the dirt that sin has left on us, but that there is also a way to be clean again. Jesus Christ is that way. With Him we can start again and our sins can be forgiven because of Jesus’ blood.
On Saturday we started to teach about Jesus’ life and his ministry here on earth. At first we heard that Jesus cared for each and every one of us. Zac was telling about the parable the Lost sheep. Even if we have 99 young people at our youth group Jesus would still care for the one that is missing there. “It is not those who are well who need a physician, but those who are sick.” Luke 5:31. Afterwards Daniel and Denisa taught about Jesus calling on his disciples and how He gave the right challenge into each of their lives and also to the lives of the other people that He met. We want to continue to study Jesus’ life at all of our visits there, because who can be a better example for our lives?
In the afternoon we learned something about ourselves thanks to the personality test. Some of us ended up as lions, others as otters, beavers or golden retrievers. We also had a great game in the streets of Banská Bystrica and we were learning how to work in a team under time, pressure and stress. But everyone made it excellently.
During this school we will continue to visit Banská Bystrica and this youth group. We believe and pray that our service there will bring good and everlasting fruit, but mostly that we will help and inspire others in serving our lord Jesus Christ.
