Zac and Kim Shepperson first experienced Slovakia with their Fellowship Greenville youth group in the summer of 1999, while on a short-term mission trip to the capital city of Bratislava. Their heart has always been for young people, and so it wasn't too surprising when God called them into the movement He began in Eastern Europe through Josiah Venture. God led them back to Slovakia to serve full-time in 2001 with their two girls, Emili and Gwyneth. They now have four children: Emili, Gwyneth, Samuel and Hampton. They work with Kompas Training Center (Josiah Venture's partner organization in Slovakia), training young leaders through a leadership school, conferences, and camps. They live in Zilina and serve in their local church as elder and teachers.
Way to Pray: Please pray for Zac as he has different discipleship groups, leader trainings, and trips coming up these next few weeks. Pray for Kim who is busy with updating her Slovak blog which has become a unique way for her to interact with unchurched Slovak women. She is in the process of seeking out new editors and translators as well as making some changes to it. Pray for Zac and Kim who will both be teaching "master classes" at the JVC yearly training conference. This is their largest event of the year with more than 700 people. Finally, please pray for all four of their kids who are busy with schooling and their own unique opportunities to show the love of God to others.
