Wearing the Gospel

Many inquired about our international travel experience. We were able to travel to America, being American citizens. We could travel back to Germany, as we are German residents.
Chelli, Sadie, and I were required to get tested upon arrival with the possibility of a 2-week quarantine. Thankfully, we tested negative and did not need to quarantine.
As I traveled back to Germany almost a month after Chelli and Sadie, I was fortunate to have a non–invasive test. Chelli and Sadie endured the more uncomfortable COVID test.
Within two weeks I was on a class trip with the two fifth grade classes and two seventh grade classes. Usually, you try and wear them out the first two days, so they sleep at night, but because of COVID restrictions, every group came for one night. Therefore, every night was the first night for three nights in a row. Such a schedule means little sleep for teachers and counselors.
I taught the kids how to make paracord bracelets using:
James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
Every knot they tied, they quoted this verse as I taught the gospel, starting from the need of repentance to the faith in God’s gracious salvation in Jesus. Everyone who made a bracelet heard the gospel multiple times and has a bracelet to remind them of the need to repent and to believe. Please pray that the planted seed will bear fruit.
As our city festivals were cancelled due to COVID, we have been creatively striving to find other ways of spreading the good news. We have stepped up door to door tract deliveries and 5 min Facebook devotions. Thankfully the school has remained open.
I am very open to video conferencing. I have found an incredible OT Missions text I would love to share with your church!

A special thanks for the Special offerings. So thankful for all you do to help us do what we do,
