Revolution: a period of social change, where the previous way of life changes radically
This is our desire for the city of Münster. We desire to see a revolution of God, a moving of His Spirit in this city. People's lives being radically changed by the love of Jesus, their hearts being awakened to hope of the Gospel. Since we have returned to Münster a few weeks ago, the Lord has been moving in some pretty big ways, giving us vision for the city of Münster.
Last week at our Tuesday prayer meeting, we prayed for a few things. One of them being vision and a means by which to reach the people of this city. Another thing was specifically praying about distributing flyers and posters throughout Münster. This is how the Lord has answered these prayers this week:
1) We received 4,000+ CC Münster flyers as a gift from a very sweet man in Siegen. We were only expecting to have about 1,000 made. So this was a wonderful surprise! This week we handed out a few hundred, and placed them in some pretty key public places here in Münster.
Later on that night, we all went home and began to pray about this vision. We all felt a confirmation from the Lord. Especially Chris. So with that said, we would like to ask our prayer warriors and supporters to join us in this vision. We are going to need lots of prayer! There are a lot of technical things, business things that will have to be prayed over and pursued. A wealth of details to be worked out. Not to mention a huge capital of finances to raise. Also, we have a lot to learn about the coffee industry. All of us have worked in coffee houses in one way or another...Nada being the only one of us with real work experience. But as you know there is a lot to learn about the industry itself, about owning a shop, choosing a retailer, beans, roasters, etc.
Yet we are confident that if this is the Lord's will for our church and this city then He will equip, educate and finance all of it. We aren't sure how that is going to look, but we are trusting that God will do it, just like He has done everything else. It's all about being faithful to dig a ditch and giving God the opportunity to fill it! ( 2 Kings 3)
As a side note, there are two other praise reports to mention this week. Paul has a job interview...yes I did say JOB! This is completely unexpected, but if he gets this job it would be a huge blessing for us. It is with a company who works for Microsoft and needs native English speakers, preferably with an IT background. This is exactly what Paul has his degree in. So please be praying for the Lord's favor if He desires for Paul to have this job. His interview will be tomorrow at 10:30 am.
Paul finally got a bike! YEAH! He has been riding really junky bikes this whole time and for Christmas I gave him a "coupon" to buy a good bike. So on Saturday he did! Here are some photos of his new baby:
Last week we were invited over for a wonderful dinner by our Canadian friends Gary, Rose and Lauren. They have been attending CC Münster and they are the sweetest family ever. They live in a city outside of Münster called Laer. It's a cute little farm-like community. I'm sad to not have many pictures since my camera died but it was a sweet night of fellowship and the food was so yummy! Thanks Tamming family! Rose wrote about it on her blog here: http://rosetamming.wordpress.com

Also, please be praying for me as I am now going to be leading worship at the Women's Bible Study night on Thursdays. This is not my strong suit but Im doing it to be faithful to what the Lord has asked of me...lol yeah.
Thank you everyone for reading this, praying for us and supporting us. We feel so blessed to have so many people behind us...the Lord is doing some amazing things here!
