FREAK FEST WAS AWESOME!!!
TEAM CZECH 2006
JUNE 25th UPDATE
Freak Fest was great! There is no question in my mind that it will be the first of many contacts with the Christians we worked with there. There were so many great connections made. (You know Mark!)
We met a guy named Sasha who is started a 24-7 prayer boiler room in Prague. He is going to spend some time with us later this week when we go to Prague. We also met a missionary named Jay who we instantly clicked with. He is also going to be with us in Prague later this week.
At the festival, our team's main job was working the prayer tent. We took shifts praying for 2 hours at a time. There was always a Czech person there with us. It was neat to pray with people of another language and it was amazing how God knitted us together and allowed us to encourage the pastor there and many of the Freak Fest staff. They were so thankful. They said, "how did we ever do this without the Americans?" We just filled gaps wherever needed. Setting up tents, watching over equipment, etc. It was very relaxing and we were all encouraged spiritually through the music and messages. The festival had a wonderful Holy Spirit presence about the whole thing and cannot even come close to anything I've been to in the U.S. Totally different, but I loved it!
The next couple days we will be sharing in the public schools and the church on Tuesday evening.
We love you all!
Love, Anna and Mark
