Good in the Community of Thessaloniki

Well Amy wrote about what I wanted to talk about, but what I think is if it is something good then I think it is worth repeating. We have had these two boys here from Germany and they have been hangout with us while we show them different organizations here in Greece that is doing good in for the community in Thessaloniki. And I really wanted to mention particularly Iheart. We went to Iheart and Toni the owner talked to them about their vision and starting it up. It is amazing in a time where there is a crisis in Greece the coffee shop is doing very well! And I really liked what Toni said, “We pray for God’s favor here, and it works.” It is a great place because they are blessing the community with jobs and a place of comfort. It is a good place to bring connections and make connections. All of our friends who we take there love it! They also help with A21 campaign by doing different fund raisers back in December they had a clothing sale. The proceeds went to A21. Toni and his family are doing an amazing job here! It is a blessing to have a place like Iheart in Greece!

The Kids

Monday I went with the Gypsies with Mike and Jana and it was really good. We had them go over the colors and numbers at first. Then Jana went over things to do with your hands like greet someone or thumbs up for good. It was really good. They were all excited. Then we did the "No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" song and the "Hokey Pokey" of course. They love the "Hokey Pokey." Then Mike taught them a Christian song and talked to them about it. The whole time he was talking whenever he would say something funny the girl next to me would laugh so hard she would fall on the floor laughing. It was funny!!! She really enjoyed it. I know God loves it when he sees His kids having fun!

God moving in Unity

A week ago we had a joint service with two other churches. It was amazing to be a part of. It is really cool to see God moving in unity here in Thessaloniki. The churches that took place were Mike Long’s the Methodist church and Dan’s international church. It was cool meeting new people and seeing what God is doing in the body of Christ in Thessaloniki. It is cool in a time of crisis people are coming together and being unified! Afterwards we all ate a meal together. It was cool because Mike was like this year it is three churches and next time we want more. You could just feel the Presence of God in it all. It is cool! Thanks for all your prayers and support. God Bless!

This Week

So it has been a good few weeks. I’ve just been praying and spending time with people really. God has been opening up new friends and it has been cool! I’ve also been spending time with old friends too. It has been really good. Sometimes you just don’t realize how much you make a difference in people’s lives. But if you think about it, you really do. You could be the only person that smiles at a person today or says something encouraging to a friend! We all matter to God and to each other! The Friday night home group with the young people is going good. I feel like we are starting to get connected! New people are coming too! God is really doing stuff there! Thanks for your prayers with it. Amy talked about this week hearing from God and He calls us by name! It was good!
The gypsies are going well with Jana! She does such a great job! There were a lot today and there were really little kids too. Jana did such a good job of teaching them and getting them to participate. We went over numbers today! They of course did a good job! I’m really proud of all of them! We also went over sour and sweet. Jana gave them a lemon to show sour, and sugar to show sweet. Then we had carpet time, and they all sat around in the circle. She put on sum Gypsy worship music, and they all lit up when they heard it. It was good! The kids are really learning, and more moms are letting their kids come!
Thanks so much for all your love, support, and prayers! They make so much of a difference here! You all are a big part here!

The gypsies have been going well. We have been going every week Jana goes three times a week, and I go two times a week. We are really seeing so much improvement in them. They are getting really well with the colors. They are getting really well with knowing the fruits and animals. This morning we had carpet time for the first time. This is a miracle in it self. When I first started coming, we spent half the time trying to get them to sit much less teach them anything. And now, we are having carpet time! They are also doing listening exercises where we act out the things we hear. They are learning so much! They absolutely loved it! You can really see they are learning so much. They love playing with play dough. We do puzzles with them. At first they didn't know what to do with them, but now they are pros! You can tell that they treat each other better too. They have really started to show love and affection more to us and each other! God is really moving there! Jana has done such a great job! I have been doing little dances with them, and they love it! Please pray though they all have running noses and bad coughs! I', so proud of them! There is this little one named Nickoleta, and when she sees me she runs and gives me a hug! These kids will be so much more advanced then their older siblings!

Coming Back For His Bride!

So tonight before church we went to Starbucks. Right next to Starbucks is a church. It was so amazing because we were having coffee, and I look over and they were getting ready for a wedding. People were gathering and anxiously awaiting! There were people all dressed up waiting, and there were also complete strangers standing around waiting to see the bride come to meet the groom at the church. There were even some druggies hanging out there that stopped to just take part and to see the bride. I thought that is was so amazing. Eventually the bride came in the car, and drove up and got out to meet the groom. Everyone just gasped. They were just so excited. From people who knew the couple to people who were complete strangers. Everyone was affected by the bride coming to meet the groom. It was amazing! This totally made me think of Jesus coming back for His Bride (us). It made me especially think that you know everyone will be affected when He comes back for us!
