Well, that about wraps up the trip. Last night the conference began so that’s about all that’s going on. There are about 50 or so pastors from all over Europe. Ironically, almost all of them are Americans, missionaries who came over to plant churches. In fact, I talked to one guy from New York who has been here for 10 years. He actually had an accent. I thought he was a native. Oops!
Honestly, I’m not much of on for conferences anymore. You meet people you don’t know. I don’t have a problem with that. I do have a problem with telling the same story every time I meet someone new. Questions like, “What’s your name? Where are you from? Where is that? How long have you been at your church? Did you start it? How long has it been there? How did you get there?” Rinse, lather, repeat. It gets kind of old an annoying very fast. So basically, I’m ready to hope a plane and go home now.
I’m am looking forward to sharing with people at church what happened. Mostly, because I can do it with everyone all at once and not 20 times over and over! This will probably be my last post from Germany. Hopefully not the last one ever in my life, unless we get “poofed” (Jonah refers to the rapture) sometime soon. So, with that, danke schoen.
