“This summer is hot in Germany!” says staff member Vladimir. There have been many days with temperatures around 100 degrees (F). Since Germany is mostly not air-conditioned, it is really hot both inside and outside, with the exception of the air-conditioned car, making ministry travel much more enjoyable! This summer has also been “hot” ministry-wise. Vladimir gave us a quick run-down of a recent “week in the life” as an example. They arrive on Friday. Saturday includes preaching, leading a baptism service and counseling believers. Sunday is a writing day. Monday through Wednesday is a Christian leadership conference. On Thursday, there are meetings with the German administrative staff and potential new missionaries. Then on Friday the planning team meets to prepare for outreach in Croatia. In addition, his team hosted an open-air Messianic Jewish festival in central Germany. Some of the best worship teams and artists from the country came together for the second time to worship the Messiah together. The air was filled with praise and God’s glory was manifested powerfully during the two days of the festival. Many local people and others from around Germany attended the event and hearts were touched. Vladimir believes the festival impacted the whole of Germany and the staff members were greatly encouraged and strengthened—you should be too!
