”We are very excited to be part of the English For a New Life Camp in July (15th to 25th)! This will be the sixth team our churches have sent over the past five years. We love Moldova and we love Jesus Christ! That is why we keep coming back. This will be our first time to go to the EFNL Camp.
This team has three adults and four teenagers from Leonardtown Baptist Church and Redeeming Baptist Church. Both churches are located in Maryland about an hour’s drive from Washington, DC. We are looking forward to teaching the “God, Are You There?” Bible study and to helping to teach English with our friends from Moldova.
We can’t wait to meet you! Please let us introduce ourselves:
