Mission

My sister, Elfriede, returned from Africa and I was encouraged by her stories and her joy. She was there for some weeks through YWAM (Youth With a Mission) to spread the Gospel and help, feed and clothe the poor. It's such a great way to show God to the people. It's sad that they only stayed for a few weeks, but I think it was something that neither of them will ever forget. I'm very proud of her and am happy that she got to experience this with God, the other missionaries and the Africans.
She was near the Kalahari desert in Namibia at a Romanian Christian Outreach Base: Kalahari New Hope Center.

Here's a video, which shows what they did in Africa. The video was made by my very talented sister, Linda:
 
Here are some pictures:

 She had to bathe many children every week.
 They gave them delicious food to eat.
 My sister taught the first generation of kindergarten children.
 They built a few houses for African families.
They showed the "Life of Jesus" movie in the African language. 
Almost none of them saw a movie in their life.

    1. I'm thinking about what I would read when I haven't got so much time...and then I know the answer: I would read something short and impacting. So, I try to keep my posts short. I'm happy you liked it and the part with the VERY talented sister is very true!

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

God is really amazing. He amazes me every time. I was planning to buy myself a laptop, because I really needed one. I have a PC which I used and which was very faithful to me :) As I started my Master's Degree I needed a laptop, because I had to go to the city where I'm studying every weekend.

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
