We are excited about preparing gifts for the kids in the orphanage! During the last six months of serving the children through helping with school work and preparing them for the exams our team has experienced many things (many of which cannot be shared with the public). The work with children has shown the first results! Kids that work with us have improved their grades in school and the team is happy to reward the hard work with the gifts for the holidays.
We thank all the people who helped in providing the gifts for those that are in the greatest need!
Wave team is not stopping here! We are continuing to look for ways to help the kids to have a good future.

Last weekend Wave team members from Croatia, Bosnia and Hungary gathered in Subotica, Serbia where Wave Projects organized the Open Program. We organized a two day seminar “Knowing self and others: a key to successful communication” that was held by mr.sc. Nolan Sharp, USA/Croatia. It was excellent! There were over a hundred Wave participants and guests. During the lectures team members and the participants discussed relationships that they have with one another and different ways of solving conflicts with people who are different than them. It was the first Open program after the intensive course in October and it is an excellent start of discussions and programs that will continue in 2012.

On Friday 16th and Saturday 17th Wave Projects is organizing an Open Program in Subotica, Serbia. Mr.sc. Nolan Sharp, USA/Croatia will have a lecture Knowing self and others: a key to successful communication.
The lecture includes a personality test that discusses strengths and weaknesses of various personalities as well as how to understand and relate to people who are different than you.
It is the first open program after the intensive course in October. We are expecting a big number of participants, team and church members, as well as guests from neighboring countries. We are also expecting teams from Bosnia and Hungary to attend the Open program in Subotica. We are especially excited that during our time in Serbia we will discuss about starting one more Wave team in Backa Topola.

Recently Wave organized an international gathering in Tuzla, Bosnia. It was an amazing time where team members, partners and guests from eight countries visited Tuzla and talked about Wave future in Bosnia and other countries.
During the conference we also organized serving in the orphanage, English classes, IT classes, Wave teams meetings, church services, workshops and an Open Program with a panel that hosts speakers from Ukraine and the US. After the Open Program until late in the evening our team members were discussing how to bring changes in our society. The church building was full and we had people standing in the corridors during the Open Program.
Here are some things our guests said:
I’ve been riding the Wave for the last few days my first visit to Bosnia. What a great experience! The English classes, orphanage service and all the other events are impacting the lives of more and more people. The family atmosphere Wave creates – by loving and accepting everybody – is magnetic! Catch the Wave! You won’t regret it!
Wave is awesome! Thanks so much for the privilege of participating in the Wave project. You’re doing a great job, transforming lives in Tuzla. Keep up the good work!!
