Countdown to Home

Right now as I write, we're cruising down the autobahn at a comfortable 173 kph, starting our return trip to Canada.

We left northern Germany this morning and are on our way to Erlenbach to return our car and get ready for our return on Thursday.

As always, the last few days were (are) really busy. On Sunday, Heidi and Detlef ministered mightly in the Holy Spirit, concluding their testimony and teaching with a dramatic presentation that illustrated the freedom purchased by Jesus for us all. We just need to make the decision to receive it.

Earlier in the week we had the opportunity to minister at a house meeting - 4 hours of ministering and prayer - with a wonderful group of Holy Spirit filled believers. They were encouraged and so were we! A double blessing indeed!

With an outdoor baptism and a special "German Grill" to send us on our way yesterday, we have been truly blessed.

Only two more days in Germany; then it's time to say "Auf Wiedersehen!"

We can't believe it!

Another week has passed. Time is flying! So much is done, and so much more to do.

Every time we come over, the last week is so packed with visitations and meetings that this time we extended our last week into 2 1/2 weeks. We had hoped this would even out the events.

Nope. Sure enough, the last 2 1/2 weeks are as busy as ever.

Andy preached on August 8 in the Arche. The Radical Gospel was the title of his message. And radical it was. It was a Holy Ghost inspired round-trip tour of the Gospel - Repent ye, and believe the Gospel (Mark 1:15)

Last Sunday, August 15, Gerhild preached in the Arche. What are You Anchored to?, based on Hebrews 6:19-20, used an old "rock" anchor to present a visualization of being anchored in heaven. Having a second anchor in the past or present keeps one from drawing close to God; so cut that anchor loose!

Next Sunday, Detlef and Heidi are "team preaching". We are expectant that Holy Ghost will move mightly then as well!

Even though we're looking forward to our own beds and a Tim Horton's, we continue to be amazed at what God is doing here in Germany.

See you all soon!

Another Week!

Wow, time flies. Been busy and seeing things getting busier as we come to the end of this trip.

Again the week was filled with Bible Studies, visitations, and going on the streets. Yesterday we were at a wedding where there were many opportunities to share the Good News.

In between, we've had fun as well. Walking 4 km. through wet sand (barefoot evading crabs, jellyfish, and other sea creatures) following the water as the tide moved out until we reached a Hallig (small island). After an ice cream, walked back to the mainland before the tide turned.

Tomorrow, it's off to the Arche. Andy's preaching and we're expectant that Holy Spirit will move mightly.

1 Cor 2:4-5 And my word and my preaching was not in enticing words of human wisdom, but in proof of the Spirit and of power, that your faith might not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
