“If God be our God, He will give us peace in trouble. When there is a storm without, He will make peace within. The world can create trouble in peace, but God can create peace in trouble.”
 
Thomas Watson
 
 
A SLICE OF FRESH BREAD
 
From time to time, natural disasters threaten my Facebook friends. I’m relieved when I read their posts indicating they are safe from fires, floods, or violent storms.    
 
The disciples were crossing the Sea of Galilee when they encountered a monstrous storm. And while the disciples frantically wrestled against the tempest, Jesus slept calmly in the stern of the boat. The “natural disaster” threatened everyone in the vessel; the terrified disciples raged against the storm, but Jesus enjoyed a tranquil nap.
 
After calming the wind and waves, Jesus asked, “Where is your faith?”(Luke 8:25a)
 
Essentially Jesus asks, In what do you put your trust? Jesus’ question is important in the calm moments of life and critical in the storms. Faith in our own efforts or faith in our friends is always misdirected. Faith is Christ alone provides our safety.   
 
My Facebook friends post that they are safe after the storms subside and the wind and waves are calmed. But Jesus marks us safe while the wind howls and the wave surge around us. Safety is not found in the end of threatening circumstances. We are safe when we are close to Jesus in the midst of the storms.

On May 19 CCI-Ukraine's certified instructors are doing a camp seminar in Dnepropetrovsk for a camp that has been in operation for over 15 years, and have never been associated with CCI-Ukraine before.

Pray for the Staff Training Workshop that will be held by CCI-Russia on May 27-31 on Lake Issyk-Kul in Kyrgyzstan. It will be the first CCI training event in this Central Asian country that currently has a remarkable level of openness and poses a great opportunity for Christian camping ministry. A team of Russian leaders and instructors is preparing a curriculum combining basic and advanced features.
 
Please pray for the following for CCI-Japan:
1.     CCI-Japan will have board meeting at May 9 on Skype.

Pray for all who will participate - either attending or speaking - that they will be provided for, encouraged and make important ministry connections during their time at Camp El Rancho.
 
Please pray for the growing network of camp leaders in different countries in West Africa, as they plan for various gatherings in June and July. Those in Sierra Leone plan training events from June 22-25 in Freetown. Ghanaian leaders meet from June 29-July 2.  Pray for wisdom as CCI Pioneers plan to set up consultative meetings in different parts of this populous country sometime in July. 
 
PRAISE REPORTS
 
CCI-Ukraine's National Staff Training Workshop took place May 6-9. God has blessed and the 420 participants representing 81 camps went home inspired to train their camp teams and to serve in their camps this summer. Pray that the insights gained during the training will yield the intended fruit. This year they had 80 people representing over 50 camps on the waiting list because the venue was too small. So CCI-Ukraine certified instructors are going to visit some of these camps to hold seminars for their staff teams. Praise God for those who want to run camps and see the need to be trained by professionals.
 
CCI-Mexico gives praise to the Lord that they have done all the work needed to be a legal non-profit corporation! Now they can give better service to members and be more accountable.
