Thanks from Berlin, Germany

Posted on December 10, 2010 by Global Mission Support

Dear Gol Sunday School:

The American Lutheran Church in Berlin, Germany, is located in what was East Berlin and serves a diverse congregation.

Thank you so much for the Thanksgiving greeting card. Your love and support is deeply appreciated by Margit and me! We have been serving the American Church in Berlin, Germany. Can you find that on a map? It is many hundreds of kilometers from Kenyon, Minnesota,  but we are one in Jesus. When we pray we meet at the throne of God’s grace and there we are one together.

The children at ACB are part of the “Kids of the Spirit” program – where they hear the stories of the Bible, learn about Jesus and share together in prayer, just like you do.  In a couple of weeks they will be sharing with all the people of the congregation their gifts in singing, reading and sharing the Good News of the birth of Jesus. We have over 30 nations of the world represented in the congregation so we have children who have come from many different places in the world. We have many different languages spoken but the common language of English is the language we use in the church.

Thank you for thinking of us and praying for us. We would ask that you continue to do that for the people at the American Church in Berlin. 

Blessings and Love,  Ben and Margit

Pastor Ben and Margin Coltvet are ELCA missionaries serving the American Church in Berlin, Germany.
