Short-Term Missions

STM Report: Team Praha 2016

Janet Birkmann

One of the highlights of this summer’s short-term missions season was the service of Team Praha in the Czech Republic. The team was sent by the Presbytery of Southern California to participate in the ministry of OP affiliated missionaries Jerry and Marilyn Farnik. Over a period of three weeks (July 25–August 16, 2016), the members of Team Praha worked with children and teens through a Biblical counseling conference, a mountain adventure, and a VBS. Eight OP churches from California, Colorado, and Arizona were represented on Team Praha 2016.

Here is an excerpt from the Farniks’ August 2016 prayer letter:

“We went to the White Carpathian Mountains on the Czech/Slovak border with eighteen Czech youth and Team Praha. The Lord opened up many doors for the Gospel through conversations on the trails and around the campfire when Pastor Josh Lyons (Team Praha Leader) gave some challenging messages. When we returned to Prague, the youth gathered for a film night, a Frisbee tournament, and a coffee house where several members of Team Praha talked about the importance of God in their lives."
