When we moved to Kandern a few months ago some people from this area told us it doesn't snow in the Black Forest anymore.  I'm assuming they're wrong! :)

This morning we awoke to a white wonderland!  The kids were running through the house jumping for joy.  We got them ready a bit early and let them go out and play for awhile.  Here are the girls building a snowman.  Aren't they cute?

Mexican dinner

Our neighborhood English class will be held at our house tonight.  Robin is making a wonderful Mexican Dinner for everyone.  And she's topping it off with one of her famous Chocolate Cheesecakes.  Our friends are really excited about this.

They have never had real Tex-Mex before, so we're making everything extremely mild.  Robin made some salsa for them that tastes like tomatoes and onions with a little kick.  I made another batch for us that'll make you sweat!

This is a God-given opportunity for us to earn the right to share Christ with our neighbors.  They asked us to teach them... and invited us over weekly for dinner in order for us to do so.  Please continue to pray for open doors here.

Finally home!

My USA fundraising trip was crazy, but amazing!  In three weeks I traveled a little over 17,500 miles, counting 14 flights.  I spoke in 15 services and did 3 leadership training sessions.  The coolest part was that I was able to pray with four students to give their hearts to Christ.

Now I'm back home and trying to ease back into the Central European Time Zone.  It hasn't been pretty so far, but sometimes that's the way it goes.  I have one week of down time with my family before heading to Frankfurt (Oder), Germany for four days to do evangelistic school and street outreach, as well as leadership training and a service for the host church.  For an updated ministry schedule, check out our website:

I wanted to thank all of you that supported this trip with your finances and prayers.  We continue to be amazed at our partners and friends... You're helping us change the spiritual landscape of a planet!
