Fundraiser for our ToH Camp

Dear brothers and sisters of our European community,

We want to thank all those who have contributed to the fundraising effort to support the TOH Summer camps in previous years. With your help we could reduce the financial burden for participating families and sponsor our volunteers.

This year the Summer Camp will take place in the South of the Netherlands, from august 5 to 7, and again we will need the support of our Church communities to cover the extra costs that such a workshop entails: parents are requested to accompany their child to the WS, we need a lot of volunteers and some special equipment.

The program is compiled to suit the needs of blessed children (age 16 +) with physical and/or mental special needs – personal circumstances that would prevent them from joining in regular youth workshop activities. This is now a mainstream event forming an important part of our Europe-­‐wide summer activities for young people.

Our workshops are designed as family gatherings, with always one or both parents accompanying their son or daughter. Parts of the program take place in separate groups – giving parents and children a well-earned break from each other – while each day there are shared activities for everyone: adjusted morning service, mealtimes, outings, competition games and more.

This year’s responsible team is comprised of:
Lisa Janssen (lisajanssen.nl@gmail.com)
Ben and Joyce Baron-Koetsier (benjaminbaron1988@gmail.com), Marco Rivetti, Klemens Hoffmann and Kyung In v.d.Ven

or read some testimonies from previous years:

I felt I was in the presence of Kings and Queens in our movement, some of the parents I thought were astounding people and the 2nd Gen. were wonderful.

My families whole experience in Austria was a life changing experience. (parent)

The TOH Camp was really a highlight this year. My TOH daughter was very happy, and for me it was just Heaven… The atmosphere was very good and it was just wonderful to share with each other. The second gens were great, and as I watched the photos I realized how
much they have been doing while we were having our “parents” time.(parent)

Thanks from the bottom of my heart, this workshop was amazing. I have looked for, and yearned for such a deep experience since 3 years, and I could finally open my heart to God again. I am truly grateful – for the experience, but also for all the realizations and people I  met. I am hopeful…(2nd gen)

It was a very special experience to be able to connect with these wonderful brothers and sisters-there is something so pure and genuine about them that I absolutely love. I am so happy I got to be a part of the TOH this year!  (2nd gen)

 

Thank you once again for your continued and warm support!

Sincerely
