Bake and Pray...


(banana bread for our neighbors)

In many ways, ministry will look different here in Austria. Sometimes if I think of all of the challenges that lie ahead, I can grow weary. So instead I am focusing on what I can do at this stage...bake and pray! Yes, I know it sounds funny! But realistically, I can't communicate in German well enough yet to share my faith and we don't have a church that we can invite others to yet, so I am trusting that God can use baking and praying to minister to the hearts of those in need.

On Friday, our neighbors' (who live on the same floor as us) daughter is having surgery on her brain. She is quite young and has 3 children. Please join us in praying for their family in the days ahead...that the surgery would go without complications, and that during this time this family would see the hand of God working around them and in turn give Him the glory.

Baking and praying-I like that! Everybody knows I do too much baking. I might as well pray while I'm at it. Your banana bread looks delish! I downloaded Skype. Now I have to get Matt to hook up our microphone and get me started. love, kim

What is wrong with her? I'm sure they will enjoy your bread. Remember how happy the old folks were when you would bake them corn bread & take it to them fresh out of hte oven. I LOVE YOU! :)

Mom-
I think she has a small tumor. I'm not sure of all the specifics because of the language barrier. Just be praying!

Bake and Pray. Two things that you do very well. I am thankful for the last six years and all the baking and praying you've done for me!!! Praising God that He is using your gifts to glorify Him and bless the people of Austria now.
