Kitchen, Dining Room and Cafe - floors out, floors in!

Our building company has been installing electrical systems and ventilation in the kitchen, dining room and cafe. They've also torn up 8" thick old floors, installed new plumbing and poured new cement floors.

A group from Community Church in Sunriver, OR and 17 teens from Racziborz and Żory scraped and painted interior walls and windows and laid linoleum to get some cabins ready for us. They also helped buy and assemble some new bunk beds for campers!

H2O floods!

View of the flooding from the second floor of our main building.
In May after weeks of daily, torrential rain, Poland started to flood. It was the worst flood in decades. Poland's main river, the Vistula - that flows from the south of Poland to the Baltic Sea and runs right through many of Poland's major cities - flooded many metropolitan cities and small villages in its path. Thousands were evacuated from their homes. Damages are estimated at $2.5 billion.

The Wisła river overflowed its banks filling our lake.
 Unfortunately, Camp H2O was right on its path, too. Usually the Vistula river is one of H2O's attractive features because it has a 15-mile bike path. In May, however, the river overflowed its banks, covering H2O's pool area with 3' of water and raising the lake 5'. Praise God, the waters did not reach the buildings that we are reconstructing!
The two swimming pools are somewhere down there!

MCYM at H20!

In April 240 American teens from US military bases in Germany, Italy, Turkey, and England came on a service project with MCYM (Military Community Youth Ministry). 50 of them worked at H2O in the rain, scraping cabin walls, landscaping and digging up over 50 stumps. They landed the Saturday that Poland’s President’s plane crashed and then the next Friday they couldn’t fly home, because of the ash from Iceland’s volcanic eruption. What a mission trip…

Winter at H20

To give you an idea of what H20 looks like in the wintertime, here are some beautiful pictures of the grounds and the team that has worked in the cold and snow.

Working in the Winter

It has been very cold here in Poland, but that has not stopped our work on H20! Here are some pictures of the work that has been done and our artist's version of what it will look like when it is finished. Join us in thanking God for the progress He has allowed us to make and please continue to pray for the continuing of this very important project.
