Over 500 people from across the Czech Republic gathered in the Jesinik mountains this past July for a spiritual emphasis week. The program included nightly worship and teaching, morning small groups, some specialized workshops and 5 one-hour blocks of afternoon prayer.
During the morning hours when the adults and youth were in their small-group meetings, over 100 children also gathered to hear about Jesus. Jason and Andrea Morrison, AGWM personnel in the Czech Republic, were privileged to have Nathan Jorris from Fort Wayne First Assembly as their special guest speaker for the children. Nathan and his team were fantastic as they brought a lesson each day and led the children to times of personal prayer.
The most exciting part of the week was to see many children spending time in prayer and truly connecting with God. Many of them had tears in their eyes as they prayed on their own. In preparation for the week, the Morrisons spent much time helping the national leaders to plan the program and gather resources. Since the theme was about being a superhero for God, they decided to shoot their own superhero film to introduce the program each day. The Morrisons state that, “After seeing the children respond to God, we know the time in preparation was well spent.”
