Christmas celebration

Month ago we and our teens have dreamed about Christmas at South hemisphere because Christmas there is in the middle of summer. Christmas time in Czech Republic is in the middle of winter, weather is very could and snow is all around. People are at home only with their families. We were dreaming about Christmas time when everyone is outside, people meet their friends, swimming, have a barbecue. And then we said: "Let´s to have Christmas just now at the 24-th of June." It was great idea and we started preparation. This day, in the morning, we had a church service in Christmass decorated church and after service the Christmas celebration was started. We invited people from our church to be with us and celebrate Jesus´ birthday and we had Christmas lunch together but not traditional Middle European Christmas lunch but we had what is traditional for people at South hemisphere - cheese, ham, fish, rice, fruit, vegetables, Christmas cookies. Teens prepared some Christmas program - Christmas songs and traditional Czech fairy tale. The Evening we spend on a bank of the river Vltava and we had barbecue there. This day was great and we enjoyed this Christmas very much, praise the Lord.

Concert in the synagogue

In Český Krumlov there is a old synagogue which is now before reconstruction. After the reconstruction it will be the place for concerts and exposition. But this evening there were the first concert of a choir call "Medvíďata" (Little Bears). This choir attend three girls from our youth group - Pavlínka, Majda and Bohdanka. We were at the concert and kids and teens were singing very well and the interior of synagogue was amazing even before the reconstruction.

TeenStreet-CE meeting in České Budějovice

Stephen Zoege from OM-Germany came to our office and we were talking about TeenStreet-CE in the future. TeenStreet-CE is for teens from Central and Eas Europe and from Balkans countries. The situation in Europe is changing and the economic situation in Czech Republic is changing too. Our country is much more ixpensive then 3 years ago (when TeenStreet-CE was starting) and since 2005 we are part of EU (non EU country need to have visa). Probably now is the time to move this TeenStreet-CE more to east where it will be more accesible for eastern and balkanien people. We decided to make a survey in countries from this part of Europe and in the beginning of March we will see some result of this survey. Please, pray with us to know God will for TeenStreet-CE in 2007 and then.
