December 2019 Video Update
Hallo Leute. Wow, our first full year in Berlin and what a year 2019 has been! As Sarah articulates so well in the Vlog, we've had some amazing times we are grateful for but also some challenging times too. As we spent 2019 going through the book of Acts we've learnt that this seems to be a regular pattern for the apostles and the early church. Persecution, challenges, trials, and setbacks as a result of putting God first, followed by gospel advance, healings, churches being established and lives being transformed. We haven't as yet seen any salvation, but we are definitely seeing lives changed, some incredible moments of supernatural provision, and a fantastic team learning how to be Berliners. Our Church Camp was a really significant moment for us as the team of 20 people we've been praying for had gathered together for the first time. Chris Taylor from the New Ground team introduced us to his friends Angela and Greg Kemm originally from Jubilee Cape Town now serving Relational Mission based out of Cambridge. They all served us superbly preaching on resilient faith, being a witness, and a people of the Spirit. We enjoyed some incredible times of worship and prayer, plus much laughter, fun and games. Pete and Abi Cowley and their girls from Jubilee Community Church, East Grinstead also served us with friendship, worship and kids work. Wow! We were blessed. We're so grateful for an incredible team that God is building together. It's such a courageous thing to do, to up-root your life and be planted into a whole new city, church and nation. We are so proud of all the team, the faith and courage they are displaying on a daily basis is inspirational. We're growing as a church community, in length, depth and as followers of Jesus. What will 2020 hold? More challenges with opportunities to trust Jesus, plus much breakthrough and kingdom advance? Please continue to join us in prayer for Berlin and the church.
