Well, here we are, back Stateside. As I said at this year’s Globalscope Celebration – when all the Globalscopes come together and compare notes – our job as campus ministers is to be storytellers, twofold: once to tell our students the story of God working in their lives; twice to tell our supporters the stories of the students that hear the story.
August is set aside this year for the second part. We have been in Germany for six months on the graces of many people, including every single one of our teammates, who sacrificed part of their salaries to have us there. I doubt many other missionaries, Globalscope or otherwise, can claim that. It’s time to get back on the right track, and the right track is about $3,000 in monthly commitments away.
There was a time when I had to raise that money alone, and all I had to sell was the dream of one day having a ministry in Tübingen. This time, we are equipped with the stories of the best semester of ministry our very real, very much existing, two year-old ministry has seen.
Our first student gave her confession of faith. We have other students who stood up to record their testimonies of how Unterwegs has affected their lives. One of our students is coming to visit the States and wants to share what Unterwegs has meant to her.
August will rock.
