It is an honor to encourage and be encouraged by the Young Lions of Slovakia (with a few Czechs thrown in for good and Godly measure!). hundreds of men - most under the age of 30 - joined us to experience community together and to go deeper together in our walk with God and others. Since 2014, the Barn Brothers have shared their journey with Catholics, Protestants, Gypsies, Southern Americans! Learning together, experiencing God in worship, learning of our true identities as God's beloved sons and warriors. Thanks to all who made it possible through intercession and providing the resources.
Two of our Slovak brothers encouraged their The Barn Brothers and their fellow countrymen to join us for the 2014 event:
Five Barn Brothers were honored to spend a week in Slovakia in May of 2013
....and we felt COMPELLED to return this October.
During our last trip, over 100 Catholics, Protestants, Gypsies and others met together under the banner of the grace of God.
The mission in 2013 was the liberation of the hearts of men and through them their marriages, children, friends and communities....so...What Happened?
Several months after we returned to the States, Lukas from Slovakia visited The Barn and told us,
"What happened in May is changing our country."
Fellow Slovakian Denis expounds:
...breakthrough for the heart of Europe..breakthrough in our hearts..I have never seen so many men cry that much. I have never received so much love from men...I have never been hugged so many times during one week...I have never seen so many young men, young lions of Slovakia so hungry for God, roaring because we want a change...my heart is irreversibly changed. I can already see it in my marriage, at work...something is different..my heart is not the same. I love you. Words are not enough to thank you for coming to my country, which I love so much. Thanks to all of your dear friends, who have been praying for us, it was worth it. Greetings from the heart of Europe, Slovakia, the little big country. We look forward to seeing you again.
In His love, Denis
We returned 2014 October from the 13th thru the 19th to continue the movement and to encourage the brethren to keep walking in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 which says, "Be on the alert. Stand firm in the faith. Be men of courage. Be strong. Do everything in love." THANKS for all who have joined us in spirit!
2015 saw a return trip as well as a couple of visits from the Slovak brothers to The Barn.
The mission continues....
