Today — the last full day of the project — the Berlin youth team will be doing some refurbishing work for a Christian outreach cafe in Friedrichshain then going to Alexanderplatz for our second street outreach. Pray that the team will raise awareness of authentic, experiential faith in Jesus Christ and have opportunities to share their stories of following Jesus.
Tonight ALL of the McKinney groups from Germany and Poland will gather at IBC Berlin for dinner, a celebration “Quake,” and a youth lock-in before they head back home early on Friday morning.
Thursday 14.03.2013 — We pray that our speaking with one another will be guided by love and not determined by hateful or violent words. May our goal be to “speak the truth in love” so that we move our interactions toward the goals of understanding, balance, and clarity.
Wednesday was a full day of connecting with two different Berlin “high schools,” organizing/sorting donations at the Berliner Stadtmission, and working with “Serve the City” Berlin. With “Serve the City” the team supported the Salvation Army Cafe, helped with a children’s program in an elementary school, and painted hallways/apartments in a housing development.
Wednesday 13.03.2013 — We pray that politicians will not have the goal of strengthening their power but that they be concerned about people and about doing what is just and right.
Pray for today’s outreach projects as we connect with schools, help out at the “Stadtmission”, and support the ministry of the Youth Cafe Outreach Center Oranienburg.
