God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Thanks for visiting,
After I get all of the mutating missionary blogs from the past re-posted here, I will continue writing fresh ones. Enjoy the review...

Loving God in the Moment
K*** from Slovenia is just singing really loudly :-)and everyone can hear her!
Dropping here wouldn't be my idea of fun - but... to each her own!
These pictures were taken 2 years ago at a new Termer's Retreat.
It is a sweet memory. Where I am now is more rustic with a different type of beauty.
Maybe I can get some shots tomorrow and share.
So... you know how we in America always say: Hey, you guys. Blah, Blah, Blah.
Well, I just found out that here in Germany the word 'guys' refers to a gigolo! That is right. You are correct in hearing that I just said that.
Now, my German friends understand what I mean by this word, but it took them a while. And they sat there stunned the first few times that they heard it from their Christian brothers and sister. They thought to themselves, "Surely this doesn't mean the same thing in America." It took them a while - but they finally figured it out.
There are other words that are the same but have different meanings. Like the word will... one doesn't use that word in the same way here.
I arrived in Switzerland today. It is a little colder here in the Alps than in the Black Forest Mountains. But, the rain has held off most of the day.
It rained quite a bit coming here. I had a bit of trouble heading out this trip. I was supposed to leave on Saturday. But due to some difficulties (i.e. the police situation I referred to in an earlier blog) I had to stay and get some things cleared up.
Praising God that I had no legal ramifications. They understood the situation and I had no ticket, and it didn't even cost much. Only 11 Euro! What a praise this is.
I brought Aliza Lorraine (i.e.my harp) with me. She sits in the corner now, but I played her for about 40 minutes tonight. She gives me such joy.
Right now I am missing being with our little bible study. It is such a wonderful fellowship there. They meet in a home tonight. Those are really blessed times. The families that come, the women, the men. It is a time of community. I love it.
And tonight - I head off to bed in a few minutes. This week will be filled with classes for missionaries throughout Europe. I am hoping that they will be encouraged and uplifted in their endeavors to share Jesus with the world.
Thanking God for an opportunity to be of service. Even though I am a few days late - I pray that God can use my willing heart.

I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
