Outreach & Retreat

Connexxion had a grill party last Wednesday at one of the student's resident halls. Although it wasn't a huge group, we had a great time of fellowship with one another.

Katie and Natasha with Antje, one of the workers for Connexxion. We were at the Bible discussion night. Every Monday night, they have these discussion nights in the pub, which is a more welcoming environment for non-believers. It is a time when we read a passage of the Bible together and discuss what it means to us. Please pray that more people will come every Monday night and that God will work in their hearts. God has used this time to draw many people to himself, some of whom are now workers with Connexxion Ministries. 

We are with our friend Conny who is a believer, a student, and a strong leader in Connexxion Ministries in Jena. Please pray that she will continue to have great influence and continue to reach out to others in discipleship. Also, please pray that we will be a great encouragement to her while we are here.

Barrett arrived last Thursday!!! Yay!! We welcomed him at the train station with some pizza! Yummy! (The inside of the pizza box says “Welcome to Jena, Barrett!”)

V We enjoyed some time at the park with our friends on Thursday. We played frisbee, slack-lined, played some softball, enjoyed some bratwurst, and talked together.  
Some friends we met/reunited with at the retreat this weekend. Please pray for them as they return to their different cities in Germany. Pray that they would continue to persevere and reach out to the people around them with the gospel of God. Henning, in the middle, became a Christian this past weekend! 
Mike Story and his team joined us at the retreat this weekend. Mike shared a lot of truth from God's word about what it means to Abide in Christ. Pray for their team as they are in Jena with us this next week and help in the ministry there for one week.
Team Jena!! We went on a walk/hike with some friends here during the retreat. :)
