Where I stayed

This is the last post on this years' Summer Camp blog: tomorrow we get on the coach at silly o'clock and leave the seaside to head back to Botevgrad.

This years' SC has certainly been memorable for the children. When asked what they love most they say "moreto" (the sea) and the time spent playing with the youth team. Chris, Hannah, Alice, Chris, Shaun, Charlotte and Keenan have certainly had a big impact on the camp and together with Pete & Maggie they have bought a real sense of joy to the camp along with a willingness to just get stuck in with the kids. The kids are always up for a great time of course and the highlight of their trip was the visit to the Cornett camp on Tues 23rd Aug where the singing, dancing and swimming pool went down especially well.

There has been some really interesting stuff happening behind the scenes too and it was a special pleasure to meet Betty Cornett and Frank Abbas to discuss how we all might work together in the Varna area to stem the exploitation of children and young adults in this place. Watch our website (www.trusselltrust.org) for all the latest.

A massive thank you goes to our translator team too: Valya (right hand girl extraordinaire), Any, Viki, Peter & Bogi. We also couldn't have done without Miriyana (and Ivo) and Niki. What stars they all are!

A huge thank you has to go to all to all our supporters for your donations, prayers and messages.

I'm only going to post one picture today- one that I think sums up the camp. You can fly if someone is there to hold your hand. These kids all have value and are loved by God and we've just had a few days to communicate that but perhaps it is the "skydiving" that will live on in Iliana's memory long after the other stuff fades.
