Our time in Germany has flown by. We've had a full weekend so I wasn't able to write much, but here is an overview....
Over the last few years that we've been here, Dave has taken a section of town and progressively covered more and more territory with tracts in mailboxes. Friday he was able to cover more ground.
Saturday, we were to have company come over, so the kids and I cleaned up the house and prepared for the meal. Dave went in to Munich and passed out tracts and John/Romans in a very busy area of town. One lady walked by and starting singing Jesus Loves Me, but she didn't take a tract. No one was real talkative that day and we're not sure if that was a good thing or not. In the past, Dave has had some real heated conversations here!
Our German friends came over that afternoon and we had a good time together. Dave passed on more books and DVDs to them. They are hungry to hear more and more. They invited us over for Sunday afternoon.
Sunday, we went to church and missed seeing the pastor that has been there for over 30 years. He is in rehabilitation for a stroke that he had last year. It was good to see his wife though. Pray for her as she has surgery this Thursday. We were glad to hear that their daughter is coming from the States to take care of them!
Sunday afternoon we were able to go to our friends house. We all enjoyed hearing a church service together that evening. Technology has really been a blessing to us when we feel so far away!
Today has been spent getting ready for our trip tomorrow. We are all packed up and now we'll pray for a good night sleep. Tuesday will be a VERY long day! ...kinda like we just keep living the same hour over and over again for awhile!
Thank you so much for your prayers as we travel!
... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
