Teens and young adults from two church communities in Nicosia, Cyprus enjoyed a weekend campout, 1-3 June 2018, which inaugurated a potential new campsite close to the sea in the southern port of Larnaca.

Agbaje reflected on how much everyone enjoyed the fellowship and sharing of stories and how much potential the field has to become a campsite.

“I admired the group who managed to stay one night without the essential resources, such as electricity and running water,” he stated. “This land has a great opportunity to become a mission field community service project for the future.” [tedNEWS]
