Sunday - Worshipping in Czech
Worshipping with our brothers and sisters in Brno
The church service was filled with some worship songs that we recognized, having sung them in America, and some songs which were original Czech worship songs. We stood for a time of prayer and all across the congregation different people one by one prayed out loud. We spent some time praying for this week’s camps as well as praising God for all He has done in our midst. Pastor Petr began a new series on prayer and focused on Jesus’ desire to teach his disciples how to pray. We started with “Our Father” and talked about the importance of God as our Father as we walk in relationship with Him. Saying “Our Father” means that we accept God as sovereign and Christ’s sacrifice, which the Father has provided for us. God is the Creator of all people, but only some call him ‘Abba Father’ and are extended the privileges of adopted heirs.

Thoughts from the team on Sunday
"Something that really impacted me was the worship service. I LOVE the way Czech people pray, it's so amazing, and it felt like they weren't just praying to pray, but actually talking to God and wanting to. And I loved how they sang some songs we know, but in their language. It was just a great reminder that God isn't just working and moving in America; and He's not just for America either; He's for everyone!"
“My favorite thing from yesterday was hearing the songs that I sang as a child
and singing them in a completely different language was so cool.”
“My favorite thing yesterday was when an older lady in the Brno church came up to me. She did not speak any English, but gave me a hug out of nowhere. She was so excited and welcoming and expressed her gratitude for us coming all the way from America to help the children."
Mickey Ann says,
“My favorite thing yesterday was listening to the worship service online, while I was recovering from being sick, and even though I didn’t know the language, I could worship anyway and understood through the Spirit.”
“As we traveled to church on the bus, I enjoyed seeing the countryside and architecture as I quietly spent some time praying for the passengers getting on and off the bus.
Singing praise songs alongside Czech Christians was a joy.”
How I’ve enjoyed reading about your experiences and how joyful you all sound!!! Thanks for sharing with your TRBC family. May God bless you and use you for His glory! 🙏❤️🙏
I have enjoyed reading about the wonderful time each of you experienced in Czech on a daily basis. I can tell that our team from TRBC received blessings from the mission work and grew in their relationship to our Father in Heaven. Lives were touched there and Gods plan for them will grow.
