“My life has changed”

Acamps 2018 was a very meaningful time for me and one of the most extraordinary moments that I have lived in my life as a Christian.

From Babel to Pentecost: missionary life in foreign lands

Having ‘nothing’ and at the same time having ‘everything’. Finding the face of God in the face of people. Recognize His love in the lives of others. Be comforted in the heart of one’s brother.

Their friendship and companionship always pushed me to think about how extraordinary the event was in bringing together so many […]

“I had never known love like this”

When I left I was basically unaware of what the Shalom Community and the Acamps truly were, but when I arrived at the centre of evangelisation HungaRio, in Budapest, I straight away felt right at home, I was welcomed with great smiles from the missionaries. What made me leave was the desire to once again […]
