This summer found five Calvary students accompanying the Director of the Burnham Center for Global Engagement on a three week educational and ministry tour of Greece. The students enjoyed learning the history and cultural background of much of the New Testament as they traveled in the footsteps of Paul. Along the way, we were able to learn about the continuing ministry needs to refugees. We visited two refugee care centers created by AMG, our host for the three weeks. Students were challenged by those ministries as to how God might be calling them to be involved in this continuing global crises. The Burnham Center is already making plans for the next Greece trip in 2020. Students will have as many as five opportunities coming up next summer for both cross-cultural and local national ministry involvement including a trip to Israel! Stay tuned for more information on these opportunities, and enjoy some pictures from the recent trip.
That’s it for now, if you want to see more join us for our next trip to Greece in 2020! Please be in prayer for the work of AMG and many others who are sharing the gospel in this historic place. While Greece is rich in biblical history and heritage, the needs are also great. Calvary hopes to provide an internship opportunity soon through our partnership with AMG and the Cosmovision center in Athens.
