A Word for Monday – Meeting

This weekend Jon traveled with his boys’ discipleship on a výlet (trip) for an event in Slavosovce, a village two hours from Kosice.  Technically, the event was a stretnutie (stret-noo-tee-eh), the word for a meeting.  Most of us don’t like meetings, it’s true!  But while this word is usually translated “meeting,” it is also generally used for any time two or more people get together.  So a stretnutie can be a formal business meeting, or a simple get-together with a friend over coffee.

We played some fun games – ever tried to get a group of 40 people in birthday order… without anyone speaking?

At this meeting, several teen discipleship groups from our part of Slovakia came together for chvály (worship), hry (games), and just generally to get to know each other.  We had a lot of fun, and it was good to spend time talking together on the way there and back.  We’re thankful for the opportunity to have these discipleship groups, and we pray God uses gatherings like this to form Roma young people into disciples who can speak truth and love into their friends’ lives.

No gathering like this would be complete without lots of singing!
