The easy part of moving was packing, moving, un-packing and hanging pictures. The far harder part is discovering just where we fit in this new community.
As with all our other moves it takes time. We are meeting new people, attending events and looking for new opportunities to server those who serve our country.
Last week I had the opportunity to attended a unit’s prayer breakfast and had a conversation with the Brigade commander how I might minister to his soldiers with his chaplain down range.
Debbie and I hosted a small Thanksgiving for about13 soldiers and airmen and had some great conversations. We also participated in a food distribution to some of the needed residences here in Kaiserlautern.
We are also staying busying with our responsibilities and field leader. We had a wonderful time in Spangdahlem a few weeks ago. Last week we were in Grafenwoehr where I had the opportunity to help by grilling over 150 pork stakes for a special dinner celebration.
Next week Debbie and I will fly to England and spend a couple of days with our missionaries who serve an Air Force community there.
We feel confident that God will open the doors for us in our community. We are enjoying our new home and new community and thank God that in this time of transition He is leading us.
Thank you for all your prayers for us.
