We’ve been back in the States just over a month now and have settled in as a family.  The kids are adjusting and we’ve just about gotten over the reverse culture shock.

For the 4th of July, we had a bonfire to roast marshmallows and make s’mores.  I had to stoke the fire a couple times to keep it going so that we could enjoy burning clumps of poofy sugar to stick together with some chocolate and graham crackers.

Stoking a fire provides it with more oxygen, so that it burns brighter and hotter.  That’s our goal this year – to stir up hearts for Germany and what God is doing there.  Our desire is to share with as many people as possible about our passion for Europe and pray that God lights a fire that enlarges their heart as well.

We’re so thankful to have such a wonderful team that is serving together. We’d love to connect for coffee, a small group or a service.

It’s also exciting to see how our team grows. Please feel free to tell others about what you’re a part of and how they can get a heart for Germany too! Pray for many new friends and partners for our ministry together. More information coming soon as well as links to our private Facebook page and some fun give-aways – like German Chocolate and Coffee!

Please pray for our church plant in Berlin.  I received this request from Aaron, our associate in Berlin – he writes:  “We are now meeting twice monthly, and many attendees are un-churched and at various stages in the process of becoming believers. Please pray for direction in regard to facilities as well as wisdom and enabling for the leadership team.

As a family, we will be based near the grandparents and I will travel around the country, sharing, connecting, stoking and hopefully not eating too much and gaining.  Amy and kids will join me as much as possible.  We look forward to seeing many of you during this next year.

Serving Him together!
