After 19 months of COVID -induced working from home you might expect I’d be writing about happy TRIALS – learning to make the most of what God wants to do in the midst of challenges.
But no. I do actually mean happy TRAILS as Linda and I (along with Momentum Europe Partners, Dr. Jim and Nan Huhta) finally get to hit the road again as we travel to Spain and Portugal from October 24th – November 1st. The Huhtas will be continuing on to Austria and Germany.
Zoom was God’s gift to many of us as it helped us stay in touch with our families and friends. For us, we have been able to stay in touch with what God is doing in Europe as we’ve interacted from afar. But now it’s time to get “up close and personal” (well not too close and not too personal J) as we meet with Cru staff leaders in Spain and Portugal. Dr. Jim has been invited to address a gathering of doctors in Madrid – an opportunity that our National Team Leader for Spain thinks is hugely strategic in terms of developing contacts for future ministry. While in Spain and Portugal we are trusting that the four of us will grow in our understanding of how Momentum Europe – with all the networks and resourceful people that we represent – can help launch an on-going ministry to influential leaders.
These two countries are brand new connections for Momentum Europe. We’ve been asking God to open new doors and this looks like His answer!!
The Huhtas will be continuing on to Linz, Austria where Jim will again be speaking professionally to a gathering of doctors. Then they will head to Berlin where Christoph and Karin von Mohl will involve them in their local on-going ministry to leaders.
Won’t you join us as we follow the happy TRAILS the Lord has set before us? When news of Europe shows up on your preferred media channel, let it remind you to pray for the four of us:
- For divine appointments
- For a spirit of learning and understanding
- For insight on how ME might serve to fan the flames that God has put on the hearts of Cru’s leaders in each stop along the way
I think I’ve had enough of the COVID trials. I’m more than ready for happy trails – especially those that lead us back to Europe.
