NC Baptists Launch English Bible Camps in Hungarian Public Schools
A classroom full of Hungarian middle schoolers leaned in to hear the story of Jesus’ birth as North Carolina volunteers explained it to them. For many of them, they were hearing the story for the very first time. They acted out the story with their classmates and memorized Bible verses in Hungarian and in English. All the while, the teachers in the back were meticulously taking notes; many of them were hearing the stories for the first time as well.
A Theology of Risk for NCBM
The work of short-term volunteer missionaries can involve high levels of risk and danger to their safety. The risks can be in the form of physical accidents, medical emergencies, criminal activities, political upheavals, health issues and natural disasters. For those willing to take the risk, it is important for them to know an organization’s philosophy toward risk so that the individual can determine if he or she wants to serve as a volunteer through that organization. It is with that in mind that this statement is prepared.
