Update from Geneva, Switzerland

Greetings to you from Geneva in Jesus’ name!!

We have had great services, a number of visitors, church members stepping up their commitment to the Lord and to the church, and people receiving the Holy Ghost!

At the end of October, we had our first regional Elisha Conference for ministers and leaders in Munich, Germany. There was a great spirit of unity, fellowship, worship and impartation amongst ministers from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland! Afterwards we held our first service in Munich, where one young woman was renewed in the Holy Ghost and baptized a week later!

Sister Amber Hackenbruch is back with us in Geneva and has been helping tremendously with visitor followup, Bible studies and worship during service.  She has been the start of a shift in Geneva, where we have now equipped ourselves to accommodate more AIM workers with a dedicated apartment, to save costs compared to hotels.

We had a great Friends’ Day service in December, with 45 in attendance, many visitors, and Brother Thomas Kouadio and his wife ministered in word and in worship—3 received the Holy Ghost! We have had many continued contacts since then.

 Brother Vicente Mestre and his family have been holding weekly Spanish services and Home Bible Studies in Lausanne, Switzerland. Vistors continue to come, and several people have been baptized in Jesus name in that city! We are very excited!!
 Brother Charles Robinette taught a “Leadership with Purpose” workshop in Geneva, speaking to future leaders in the church, underlining commitment.

We are now planning the 2013 Apostolic Ministry Training Center session from March 8-18 in Germany. We have 13 teachers joining us for intensive training, fellowship, worship, and outreach!
