EXIT Tour fall 2012 is starting next week!

In Bardejov (October 9th-13th) and in Poprad (October 16th – 20th).
The EXIT Tour means whole week at local highschools. The program consists of miniconcert of Faith Child band every day. We provide also workshops and seminars by the profesional lectors. They will talk about topics of prevention (image, sex, drugs,…). We are excited to have a special guest from US - Mr. Thomas Graumann will share about his story “Twice rescued” – once from Holocaust, then by Jesus Christ.
Students are invited to afternoon activities and big concert show on Friday. Despite good music the Gospel will be shared for hundereds of students. Whole EXIT project is done with help of local churches. These youthgroups have prepared follow up events for students to come.
Faith Child - band for EXIT Tour Fall 2012

Experience from last year clearly says: Harvest is ready – in this case it is definitely true.
Please, pray for EXIT Tour, for the students, lectors, and band. Pray that new generation in Slovakia could see Jesus Christ and change lifes.

GOD is not GODOT

If you asked me during the summer what plans do I have, I probably answered: 
“I don’t know what’s going to be with me. We will see.”

To see just some weeks infront of you is not very pleasure. But sometimes your only option is just to wait what’s going to happen. So I was waiting… not patient and calm all the time. But  while I was waiting I realized two things:

1.     Nowadays we are not used to wait. If you want a mango, you just go to grocerystore. If you need money an ATM will give it to you. If you want to fly to another country, in 20 minutes you can buy flytickets.  If you want to see New York, just go to Googlemaps and you can walk in newyork streets (you can even go inside to see some museums, I tried it). We can get common things so easy and fast. So we forgot to wait… wait properly.

2.     There are to ways how to wait. One thing is to wait at the doctor. You are sure that the door will open once. The other case is to wait for Godot, wait when you realy don’t know if the reason you are waiting for will become true. When you are not sure if there something to wait for.  In this “Godot waiting” is much harder to stay calm and patient.

My last months were exactly like waiting for Godot. To be honest I doupted and I was losing hope from time to time.

In Psalm 130 vs.5 is written:
“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope.”

                I wish I would  wait like this. With hope, calm all the time. Anyway, last months it was a good lesson for me. At the end God answered and showed His majesty, He humbled me (once again). Now I pray that if there will be the same situation in future, I wish I could keep my heart and mind set properly. Without “ups and downs”, doubts and trusting… I hope I will patiently wait for my God with all of me. Because GOD IS NOT GODOT.

Now it is easy to say these wise words. I am over the hard times. I stand at a hill and I can see jurney infront of me. And what is that like?
In the end october I am moving back home to Levice town. 2 years ago when I was leaving, I was decided to come back one day. Reasons were clear: I loved Levice church and I felt responsible to come back and serve there. I thank you all that supported me in different ways – financialy, by encouragements, prayers… I am excited that my desired from 2 years ago is becoming true now.
So I am going home.

You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely.  You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Saying Goodbyes

„Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! For there the LORD commanded the blessing and life forever.“ Psalm 133

When you live in a church that has 300 members, it is very difficult to sum up just in a few sentences all the richness, fullness and diversity you can experience there. The longer you live with these people, the better you know them, the more they have become a part of you. It´s like a good cuisine – everything is mixed there. All the personality types, different generations, job positions and different life stories. I am going to move to Zilina in a few days. Here, at home, I leave behind extraordinary people and precious environment. During the goodbye party (Thank you very much for it!), I realized that I have the tendency to praise you for how gifted we are, for the gifts we have and how we enjoy being together. Encouragement is useful and good, but we are not here to do just that. We are here because God has blessed us and gave us life forever. When I saw dozens of people at the party, I saw God, and dozens of His faces. There are pieces of Him in every one of these, for me very close, people. I was a part of colorful, big and beautiful church of Cirkev bratska in Levice … because God decided so.
To Him belongs my thankfulnes and appreciation for all this beauty, pleasant memories, as well as for trials and lessons.
When I look back, I see grace because He gave blessings to me and to my church. When I look into the future, I have the hope of life because He has promised so to my church and to the whole world.
Speaking about the present, I can do only one thing – to hang my life on His grace. I don´t think a psalmist was an exaggerated optimist when he wrote this psalm. He could just have a real picture how it looks like when brothers dwell together. Life in a church can sometimes be wild, sometimes difficult, but it is beautiful. And it is so only because God gives us life and blessing.
Thank you, Cirkev bratska in Levice, thank You, my God.

TCKompas Annual Report 2009

"I don´t know your experience with cars. I mean buying cars. My colleague told me a story from the time wthen he was a student. He found a great offer on a car he always desired. Low mileage, faultless body, beautiful paint and leather seats. A Saab no less! The test drive came our perfectly. The engine didn´t show any problems. It was full strength all the time. However, the story did not end with a purchase. Because, for some reason, the owner didn´t want to let him back the beautiful car into her yard. But he tried it anyways.  And then it was revealed. The reverse gear was broken! Our desire here at TKompas is to have both a good outward condition as well as a strong inward capacity." Peter Hrubo, TCK Director
