We have had the blessing of getting to know Ramona. She cuts our hair and puts up with our bad German.
Ramona has attended several of the Rock Berlin functions and has gotten to know a few in the church. She listens politely when we share our faith with her.
She is also pregnant with her first child. We hope you will join us in praying for Ramona.

They were an encouragement as we chatted about Linworth Rd. Church and Rock Berlin. And, of course, we made sure they sampled the local dessert offerings.
We also introduced them to the trampolines in the ground at some of the parks.
The best part was taking time to pray together. Prayer binds by the Holy Spirit. Wonderful!
The home of co-pastor John Goering and family has had many problems. A big one was a leak in the main water line. The family was forced to take a 10-day vacation while repairs were made. The house church then met at another apartment for two meetings. It was a great time!
We had visitors from Jews for Jesus, who were doing street evangelism for two weeks in July.
They shared a bit of their ministry stories with us.

Between Christmas and New Years, Dec. 27-30, Great Commission Europe staged the bi-annual Awaken Conference in Pescara, Italy. Over 100 people came together from six European countries. The theme was Knowing God's Will for Your Life and Pastor John Goering was one of the four main speakers. Eight RBers attended the event and were blessed by the content and the fellowship. It is such a blessing for Lucy and I to meet with missionaries who have been in the field for many years and share the benefits of their experiences. We hear many stories of God's faithfulness.
It didn't hurt either that the weather was warmer here than in Berlin and we actually saw some sunshine, which we don't see much of in Berlin. The hotel was right on the Adriatic Sea, very beautiful.
