Dear Pastors, Friends, and Family,
Fröhliche Weihnachten! Merry Christmas from Germany!
Our ministry here is going well. We have been in our current building for over a year now and haven’t faced any problems. It’s hard because we can only use it for a short time on Sunday; however, it’s nice that we don’t have a lot of responsibilities with it. Our midweek service is usually over zoom, but we get together as often as we can at someone’s house. When we do this we have pizza before, which is always welcomed!
We had a great Thanksgiving at our house. We invited our church people and also some unsaved neighbors. We had 17 of us for a traditional turkey dinner! We took this opportunity to give thanks and have a short devotional. Please pray especially that we can reach out more to the neighbors who came.
I have started doing a podcast to reach out. This is just a short devotional each day, and then on Sundays, it is my sermon. I have uploaded this to Spotify and Apple and I’ve entitled it The Devotional from Rhein River Baptist Church.
We have just celebrated the First Advent. The Germans make sure that they have decorated before this weekend. However, their tree might wait until Christmas Eve to get set up. There are lights everywhere in the city along with the traditional Christmas Markets. This is always a fun time of year.
This Christmas will be different for us. Kameron will graduate from Air Force Basic Training on December 15. We will be in San Antonio for this great occasion! Because we haven’t had Christmas in the States in about 10 years, we are staying for that. We will be able to see all of our children, along with our parents and brothers and sisters! Then we have a missions conference in Arizona in January. We will return to Germany shortly thereafter.
Please keep our church in prayer. Pray that we will find more ways to reach out in the community and that we can be a light where God has placed us!
Thank you for your prayers and support. Your Missionaries in Germany,
Walter Clark and family
