This last week has lead us down many winding roads! We have gone from the Arch of Titus in Rome to the Arch of Triumph in Paris. We have seen many of the mountains, hills and beaches of this great world and feel very blessed to have done so!
The company Dave works for has sent him on some business this last week, so while he went one way, we rented a car and drove around in other areas close by. Dave was able to talk to his business associate and girlfriend about the Lord while he was there. Please pray for them.
We were able to see our German exchange student from five years ago! What a blessing to see her again, after our last visit three years ago. She is not a believer, but we continue to share Christ with her and to try to be a good testimony. Please pray for her salvation.
Not much schoolwork went on this week, so we called it our spring break! Oh, the joy of homeschooling! There was still a lot of learning going on. The girls rode horses at a farm that we stayed on near Dusseldorf.
From sea to shining sea! I have now seen both sides of the Atlantic Ocean and it is beautiful. The kids and I were able to drive around the west side of France. My one hope was to have sunshine as we drove around and it was so nice of the Lord to bless us with that. We had another history lesson and visited Utah Beach in Normandy. World War II came alive as we saw this sight first hand.
Our travels continued and we were able to see the Eiffel Tower! I don't think any of us would have believed we would ever see this sight. It was a special experience for all of us.
This week has ended with a very nice visit with a missionary family in Stuttgart, Germany. We enjoyed their Sunday School that was in English and then their Service which was in German. It was very interesting to sing songs in German that we were very familiar with in English. Please pray for the missionaries all over the world that have devoted their whole lives to serving the Lord in an area that may not be their comfort zone so that people can hear the Good News of Jesus.
As we continue our time here, we will be in Munich, Germany helping a church whose pastor has been sick and unable to do what he so wants to do. Please continue to pray that God would lead us to the hearts that He has prepared. We feel very small in this task, but we know we serve a very mighty God. May we be willing to do what He asks!
