In an exercise at Camp Week 2020, Adam Boyd gave participants the opportunity to translate the Lord's Prayer in 15 minutes. Not from Greek. Just from the English we know into English without theological key terms. Now that's an exercise that would probably be good for you too!
How did the kind efforts of a group of Americans to build a meetinghouse end up destroying a poor Mexican church? What is so radically different about the church "Hamid" is part of in Southeast Asia, and the blessing they receive from America?

On Tuesday, June 30, Camp Week was just kicking off, and we got to listen to Billy North share three talks about community development from his years of experience. Billy and his family are passionate about "appropriate technology" and using it to help the poor in meaningful ways.
In this message from All-Nations Camp Week 2020, Ken Miller shares from a three-fold burden for Anabaptist people preparing to be involved in church planting today:
Camp Week, we say, is about three things:
Except the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it (Ps 127:1).
It’s been over a year now that we’ve been laboring and at times we’ve found ourselves wondering—will this project ever really happen? Finally, it is actually happening. Praise the Lord!
We started off 2020 with the big discussion and decision-making meeting of the year. The Board of All-Nations, together with the Advisory Council, several consultants, and the executive committee, gathered on Friday and Saturday of last week.
Greetings to you each, and thanks to all of you that have supported and prayed for this ministry during the past year. Our almost completed calendar year has proven to be an eventful season of growth and change! I’ve highlighted a few of the bigger events and changes below.
