NEWS FROM KEITH AND DEBBIE GANDY - GERMANY
Seven weeks earlier than planned, our first grandson, Ben, was born to our son-in-law and daughter, Christof and Lisa. Doctors were not alarmed, babies are born premature regularly.
Our joy would soon turn to sorrow as dedicated doctors and nurses worked frantically on a baby who struggled to breathe. After hours of attention from specialists, it was concluded that we would only have Ben for hours or possibly days.
12 hours after entering this world, and without ever having experienced a tear, Ben went to be with our Lord. Our sorrow has been intense, and yet Jesus has been so near. We have found great comfort in the closeness of the church body.
EXTREME DAY: EVANGELISTIC OUTREACH
With a vision of someday cracking the code of mass evangelism in Europe, a small, yet dedicated band of workers in our church has planned an evangelistic outreach for teens and young adults.
What a thrill to experience the hand of God in a fresh way: 18 made a public profession of faith, 5 seek more information and 5 desire discipleship.
We feel as if a door is beginning to open for an even larger movement based on this experience.
Would you consider assisting us in another outreach event at the end of this year? We need someone to champion the costs of a venue for $1200, plus someone to assist in costs of recruiting - $1500. Those are two of the initial cornerstones necessary in order to proceed.
