We are really enjoying learning lots about this beautiful city. With so much history, culture, creativity, politics, poverty and influence their is so much going on here. Berlin is a young city with an estimated 40% of it's population under the age of 35. 628,000 foreigners are registered as living in Berlin from around 190 nations. Their are 6+ million people in the greater Berlin/Brandenburg region. Berliners are beautiful people, all made in the image of God, with significance, value, worth and ver vibrant. We seriously believe God has great plans for this beautiful city. This month has been the hardest for us so far. Living by faith is about perseverance and obedience, even when it gets tough. We are learning to hold tight to the promises of God over our lives, this church and the city. We are trusting God each day and believing Him for breakthrough as we pioneer a work that seeks to glorify God and make disciples of Jesus. We are also really grateful for church family, you! We are also thankful to God for our friends and church family praying for us, giving, and cheering us on. Particularly our friends Simon & Gwen Elliott who visited this month, and others from across New Ground who are actively supporting us.
