They have an island!

Baptist boy and girl scouts in Denmark were overjoyed to learn this spring that the historic Middelgrund island fortress in the Øresund between Copenhagen and Malmö was donated for use of all Danish scouting groups – including the Christian-based Baptist group. 

The historic man-made island, with 200 rooms connected by two miles of corridors, was constructed by King Christian IX in 1890 and is still believed to be the largest man-made island in the world. Question is, how will it now be put to best use?

PRAY for the planning process, that Baptist leadership will continue to have a voice.
PRAY for renewal in the Christ-centered Baptist scouting organization this summer, that more and more young people will make decisions for Christ.
PRAY that this island that once guarded Denmark’s capital will become a place where young lives turn to Jesus!
