Four years ago God laid on our son, Mark's, heart to begin a youth conference for the military and missionaries young people here in Europe. It has been greatly used of God to impact the lives of many of these kids. It is first class all the way! The preaching is excellent, the standards are high, the music is fantastic and the program is jam-packed and fun-filled. There are usually about 12 countries represented in the attendance. Three teens were saved at this year's conference and 8 teens and 3 adults surrendered to full-time Christian service. Our granddaughter, Emily, a junior at Crown College, was here for the summer and served as a counselor. She took these pictures that give a great overview of the week. The past three conferences were held at our church, Rhein River Baptist, which presented a good many challenges in accomodating and housing 75-100 teenagers. But Mark was able to locate a beautiful camp ground in Bad Orb, Germany. Bad Orb is a spa town in the Main-Kinzig district, in Hesse, Germany. It is located 32 km east of Hanau. Bad Orb is between forested hills in the Nature Park Spessart, on of the largest forested areas in Germany and it proved to be just perfect for a youth outing.
