On Sunday afternoon our chapel community joined us at the Festaburg for lunch after chapel. It was so good to have our house full once again!
It was a wonderful afternoon of fellowship, conversations, games and laughs.
In addition to our chapel community our friend Jim Collison and his mom dropped by. Jim was a young soldier who we first met in 1986. We met Jim in chapel with in a few days of his arrival in Germany and he joined us for lunch after services. A few weeks later he asked Jesus to come into his heart. For the next two years he became very involved in our ministry and our lives. Although we have stayed in touch we hadn’t seen each other for 15 years. It was a great reunion.
This Friday we will attend the Good Friday service at chapel and Easter services on Sunday. On Monday we will travel to our yearly European Staff conference. When we return (on April 7th) we expect to begin our normal programing here at the Festaburg.
In addition to our normal program we are planning a missions trip to Burundi in August as well as a camping trip in Switzerland on Labor Day.
