…a hand from the hidden COUNTRY...
 
48x8
Since arriving in the Eifel we have experienced rain, snow and warm sunshine, and found delight in the flourishing of God’s handiwork.
680x60x3
275x267
After some days of settling in, we have been overwhelmed by opportunities that have opened to us. In the words of C. S. Lewis, “…a hand from the hidden country…” (Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer). We marvel at the mystery of your prayers and intercessions, far from the Eifel, and yet manifest here in tangible ways.

Kloster Arenberg, Koblenz
180x130x1
April 13-15   18x18
Sisters and guests of the monastery responded warmly to Hanna’s reading from her book Meine Krone in der Asche. Her three aunts, Johanna, Dora and Elisabeth Schneider, made their home in Koblenz, so she mentioned them in the book reading. The next day, at the end of a smaller follow-up meeting, the head of counseling at the monastery presented us with an email from Sabine. She had been present the previous evening, and wrote of her desire to work on the laying of Stolpersteine (brass plaques laid in the sidewalk) to remember Hanna’s aunts!!
The public library, Simmerath
180x130x2
May 4   18x18
People in Simmerath, a small Eifel town which experienced the full trauma of the Battle of the Bulge at the end of WWII, organized a book reading for Hanna in the public library. Afterwards there were so many questions about forgiveness. George could share Jesus’ teaching on “How to become the kind of person who forgives”.
Chemin Neuf, Bonn
180x130x3
May 8   18x18
Chemin Neuf is an international Catholic fellowship with a calling to serve for unity among all Christians. From a prayer group in France in 1973 it has grown to some 2,000 members in 30 countries. After the Chemin Neuf leader in Bonn read Hanna’s book, he asked her to speak during their Sunday evening worship service. Our relationship is rapidly deepening.

A COMMON THREAD LINKING THESE THREE EVENTS:
20x20
680x60x2
Invitations to read and share came through friendships that only God could have arranged.
 
48x8
With Kloster Arenberg through Tamara, who became our friend after we met at a book reading in Café Harmonie in our Eifel village of Dahlem.
With Simmerath through Peter, who searched us out after seeing the book for sale in Cafe Harmonie.
With Chemin Neuf through Christel, whom we met last year at the Wittenberg 2017 meeting in Rome, and through DieMut and Martin, whom we met when we spoke at Zentrum für Erneuerung—Maranata, Oberpleis.
Standing in the Need of Prayer
 
48x8
Chemin Neuf is organizing a “Festival”, July 19-25, in Lodz, Poland, before the World Youth Days in Krakow with Pope Francis, July 25-31. They are expecting 8,000 young people from many countries to come to Lodz. (Up to 2 million are expected in Krakow!) Hanna has been invited to share her testimony as part of the Lodz program. Her parents were deported from Cologne to the Lodz Ghetto and spent six months there before their gassing in nearby Chelmno.

Only God could have opened this door. What healing!! … for Hanna to testify to the power of Jesus to transform in the very space her parents once occupied.

But we have to scale some mountains for this to actually happen:
+ Air tickets must be changed and new flights found.
 + George may need immigration permission to stay longer in Germany.
 + Our medications are going to run out; we need new supplies.
 + Seizing this opportunity puts more pressure on an already under-funded budget.

We all know—God is able! So thankful for your prayers.
