Update from Munich, Germany

 Greetings in Jesus’ name from Munich! Summer is over.  I waited this year for the “quite time” of the summer to allow me to get caught up. That never happened.  We whipped through Augustand into September, and with a few business trips throughout Europe and then General Conference in October, right into our Elisha Conference in Munich.

The month of September was a month of edifying.  We spent time giving Bible Studies to some of the new saints, and encouraging.  Most of this was either short Bible Studies, like“Into His Marvelous Light”or our“engaging”Bible Study,“Search for Truth II," which we are SO thankful to have in German!  We usually teach this from an Ipad or Tablet, and send PDFs of the study beforehand. The rest of our time was busily preparing for the Elisha Conference, our annual conference for the ministers, leaders and wives of the German speaking nations.

As General Secretary of the district, I have spent considerable time catching up on the years of history, as we needed to make a transition from one finance office to another, from one city to another. The process is ongoing, and is one of those tasks that are never really seen, but which are needed for the ministry to go forward.

 During our time at General Conference in St. Louis, we were able to connect friends from Michigan we had not seen for years, many other missions families, both in and outside of the EME region as well as many members of the Global Missions Board. We were also blessed with a chance to contribute a little bit to the effort in the EME Global Missions area as well.

Our Elisha Conference was a powerful time of teaching, fellowship, prayer, and along with a General Board meeting and our yearly ministers' business meeting. Brother James Stark taught powerfully on topics pertinent to the ministry here in the German speaking nations, along with Bro. Manuel Carvajal from Columbia and Bro. William Markham our EME Area Coordinator.

We thank you all as supporters and partners for your love, help and consistency—may God richly bless you for your share in the burden of Jesus Christ!
