We are dedicated to God's Word through regular Bible study, worship and prayer, sharing the Good News with all people by telling of the hope, love and purpose we have through Jesus.
“For Christ’s love compels us…and he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for him who died for them and was raised again.” (2 Cor 5:14-15)
Not Quite Back to Normal
Things are opening up. Things are improving. While worship services in most places have resumed, we still have not been able to resume services in London or in Switzerland. A short term problem, Pastor Hartwig has had to deal with is a delay in getting his residency permit. Because of the virus restrictions, one must make an appointment. He is unable to begin the process until July 9th. It will be several weeks after that before his residency pass will arrive. That makes travel to London and Switzerland for the next service doubtful. We had hoped otherwise. Watch the calendar on our web page for the latest information on services.
We rejoice over the arrival of Pastor John and Helen Hartwig. They arrived safely and on time. We’ve had a week to work on making the transfer from one chaplain to the next. We ask God to bless their work here in Europe.
Pastor and Marge Stuppy are set to head to the USA on Saturday. If nothing changes, they will stay overnight in Lisbon and head to Boston after that. Please keep us in your prayers.
This is my last newsletter and posting. I do so with sadness in my heart. Marge and I will miss all our friends here in Europe. We have grown to love you all dearly. We thank you for your fond farewells and gifts. We pray we will see you again soon. God’s blessing to you all. - Pastor Stuppy
