a quick stop: Berlin, Poland

Here's some photos from a recent trip that I took to Berlin, Germany visiting our Greater Grace church there. We had a meeting with over ten teens and young adults and also a church service on Sunday morning. These photos are mostly from a quick missions trip that we took with a group from the church to Slubice, Poland, a city on the German border. Our church in Berlin is very important and a real beacon of light in a dark society.

back in Turkey

I decided to spend a few weeks with our church here in Istanbul, Turkey as we finish up the sixth semester of the intensive bible school. Last night we had a Thanksgiving celebration with Turks, Iranians, Azeris, Nigerians, Finns, and even some Americans in attendance. It was a special time thinking about all that God has done in our individual lives and also the work that He has done and continues to do in the Middle East. We are so thankful for our bible school here, our students, teachers, and the movement of the Spirit in the hearts of people.

pictures from Lahti

We had a limited time on the streets this Saturday in the nearby city of Lahti. We asked God to give us one person who was really seeking Him, and He led us to a young man in dire straits. He has spent most of his life in trouble and was already in a juvenile prison at the age of 9. He is now in his twenties and he is looking for a way out... Or should we say, the Way in.
