NEWS FROM KEITH AND DEBBIE GANDY - GERMANY
Returning to Christ
Naëmi walked away from Jesus a couple of years ago. Just 17 years old, but her heart began to wander and soon she found it less enticing to follow Jesus.
And that led her to long for love to quench the emptiness. Someone. Anyone. And she met a young man. It did not take long and she became pregnant. A beautiful baby boy named Aaron would be born. And still she was not happy.
So she returned to services just a few weeks ago. And a fire was relit in her heart. Naëmi found her Savior waiting for her and her heart was warmed. Things are now different in her life. Last week we dedicated her son and the first Sunday in February we baptize Naëmi. She gives a powerful testimony of a forgiving Savior.
Coaching European planters
For the third year running European church planters accepted our invitation and came to a think tank and coaching seminar. Three intense days of sharing content, making new friendships and a heart-moving four hour prayer session made up this year's activities.
Massachusetts' pastor, Ben Feldott, instructed over twenty men from Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Spain, France, Belgium and Austria. A good balance of strategy, leadership concepts and encouragement bring new zeal.
