Guten Tag from Berlin! After some frustrating delays with our flights, we finally arrived in Germany. This didn’t give us as much time to rest and get over jet lag as we had originally planned for, but our rescheduled flight took us straight to Berlin instead of a layover in London.
On our first Sunday we joined the worship team at Crossway International Baptist Church, which is the church here in Berlin where we are serving.
Last week we were busy helping with Crossway’s English day camp, which is an event for elementary students that they put on every summer using a Vacation Bible School curriculum. The theme this year is Roar: Life is Wild, God is Good. Each of us from Cedarville were in charge of a different station that the kids visited throughout each day. Josh taught the Bible story of the day, Haile led crafts, and I (Jonathon) taught the Scripture memory verse. Thursday was especially exciting because it was essentially the climax of the program, in which we got to most clearly present the gospel to the kids. They had lots of questions about Jesus, so please pray that they would remember and keep thinking about what they learned today.
This week is teen camp at Crossway, so pray that God would prepare the hearts of the teens as we minister to them. #CUGO
