Our first Engage the Crisis teams are on the ground in Germany! Several planes, trains and buses later, they arrived after a 3 day training in Amsterdam.
Check out this story from the Pioneer Team:
"The shout of “Hallelujah!” resonated from several team members after an amazing day of outreach yesterday. A Syrian couple, “H,” and “M,” whom we met at a cross fit gym, invited some of us to meet with them. During our conversation, "H" shared that since she was a little girl, she's had recurring dreams of a man dressed in white motioning her to come to Him. The husband also shared a heartbreaking story of being imprisoned and tortured for months in Syria, and fleeing to Europe after being released from prison. After some time of sharing, "M" showed our team a message on his phone using a translation tool: "Can you tell me how to become a Christian?" What an amazing moment! Both of them received Jesus and committed to follow Him! The Harvest is ripe and we are privileged to harvest the fruit!
Another team went with the college team to visit a Syrian refugee center that houses 1100 refugee residents. We were warmly welcomed and spent hours playing games with kids and talking to the women. This center was receptive to having volunteers come and help - we feel that the Lord has opened a wonderful and strategic door for future teams to come and serve."
