Team Mama Report – July 2006
We had a great time of ministry this year at Camp Mama. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to be a part of. Our team was made up of four Ukrainians, Angelina, Vika, Sasha, and Lena and then me, Emily, the American. Our team members had amazing senses of humor, worked great for each other, and loved the kids an incredible amount.
We had a set back on the first Friday that we were there. Through the previous week we had become very close to the kids, and we all had the few kids that we had developed extra special relationships with. On Thursday we found out that 28 young kids and around the same number of older children were going to leave the next day to go to Camp Hope. Our team was very frustrated with this news. I, personally, had the opportunity to have an amazing conversation with some of the boys about following Jesus and finding strength in him the night before. I was really upset that I was
not going to have an opportunity for follow-
So we cried and said goodbye to the children and got right back to work developing
new relationships with the kids who were left. God knew exactly what he was doing
though and we had an amazing time with the children who remained. It was hard at
first because we felt like we were starting at square one and only 15-
All around it was an amazing two weeks. We were able to build and rebuild personal relationships with the children that even not having showers to bathe couldn’t tear apart. We were also able, with only the grace of God, to be given the opportunity and endurance to stay the second week to be able to hear the children sing.
