Benediction Germany

Today, Sunday is our last day for the Presence team in Germany and oh what a day of benediction it has been.

We attended worship at Kaiserslautern Church of the Nazarene where I was blessed to preach from the 23rd Psalm. What joy it was to be with Pastor Drew and his flock here. The service ended with everyone praying a benediction over Pastor Drew and Chelsea and our new friend and tour guide from Friday, Yoni. I anointed all three as everyone laid hands on the trio. 

Afterwards we had lunch at the parsonage apartment and spent the afternoon in fellowship and vision conversation. 

We leave Monday for home. Goodbyes are hard yet we cherish this holy season of encouraging and evangelizing in Deutschland -- yes Germany.

Worship Kaiserslautern style

Reunited with Noela and Eunice from Rwanda as I met them here three years ago in Germany

Kim and Debbie talk with Noela about her life in Rwanda and her university life here in Kaiserslautern saying she used to be homesick but isn't anymore because the local church has become her family away from family 

Pastor Margaret prays with Eunice as they made an instant connection 

In preaching from Psalm 23 I made an illustration of Pastor Drew and Chip by renaming them Goodness and Mercy and had them follow me around a while to illustrate "surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life." 

Sunday dinner with the Davids in their home

As the sun sets we set our sights for home but will miss our family here in Germany, too 

"...and i wait." Psalm 5:3 GW
