Fee Fee Senior Pastor Dr. Randy Fullerton (pictured right) joined 18 volunteers from his church for all three summer camps. Fullerton also serves as Director of Development for FLF. Fullerton says camp attendance far exceeded expectations starting with the first year, and it’s grown each year since. Lalovo is a town of only about 800, with an elementary school of about 80 children. So in 2015, they expected 30-40 kids. They got 90. In 2016, they got 150, and in 2017, 205.
The week-long camp ran from July 10-14 and featured breakfast and lunch, bible study time, sports, craft activities and English classes. (See a video with Ukranian narration here.)
Fee Fee’s partner church, The House of Gospel, is led by pastor Vova Prodan, who teamed up with the volunteers to run the camp all three years. Vova says the camp has opened doors for Christ in many ways in the Lalovo area: his church has moved from Sunday evening to Sunday morning services, a strong sign of a church’s growth; he is drawing 40-50 people each Sunday; he is now teaching English classes year-round; and he is teaching religion classes in the local school.
The relationship between Fee Fee Baptist and The House of Gospel is part of the Future Leadership Foundation’s Macedonia Project, which partners 20 American churches with 20 international church plants.
