We have moved all our possessions 6 times in the last two years and have finally arrived to a permanent home in Berlin. It has been tiring but worth it. We are learning lots as we pioneer a new church and living our Berlin adventure. We are so grateful to God for our new apartment that He has miraculously provided for us. In all honesty it feels like we have just arrived and we can't wait to get started with life here in Berlin. It's been amazing to share testimonies of how God is already starting to use us. We've had some great conversations with colleagues and neighbours about why we are here and what we believe. We are mixing with amazing people who want to share life and are intrigued about the church plant and our faith in Jesus. We are super excited to be hosting friends from across Europe this coming week as we gather again for this years 'Berlin Prayer Day'. Please continue to be in prayer for all that God is doing and going to do across this great city and continent.
Wow, what a month we've had! We had an awesome time when George, Marissa, Metty and friends from Redeemer International church visited. Both the Benton's and Cowell's celebrated anniversaries, we had a fun mini team weekend in Berlin, and a visit from Dave & Liz Holden. We LOVE being family. One of the classic Newfrontiers vision taglines, was 'A Family Together On A Mission'. Thats what we want to be. Whatever age, stage, or cultural background you are, you're welcome to join this family on a mission to love God and love Berlin. Pete gets real and shares about hitting some challenges this month (We need to spend August and September looking for a flat for the Benton's. If you are a wealthy Christian watching this and want to help us by investing into an incredible couple and vision, you could buy a property for us to rent in this thriving world city)! We are continuing to realise how desperately in need of the gospel Berlin is. So much need, and SOOO many opportunities to share Jesus.
