Today has been wonderful. I guess I ought to say – the last two days have been wonderful. When you cross over six time zones during a flight, the day seems to go on forever. We arrived in Berlin, Germany (Deutshcland) today on 9/11 at around 8am which was 2am eastern time. It was a long, but fantastic journey. Ashley and I feel honored to be with this great team traveling on behalf of our Lord and Morningside Church.
Today we saw many sites including the remains of the Berlin Wall, Check Point Charley, The Brandenburg Gate, The Holocaust Memorial and many other wonderful places around the city. We ate some authentic German food and then sacked out for a long nap before eating dinner. Now I’m sitting in a litte Chinese restraunt (at what would be 4pm eastern time) getting WiFi for 2 Euros per hour of internet access (about $3).
This is my first time traveling to Europe and spending that length of time on an airplane. It was strange having my morning devotional time on both Monday and Tuesday morning on the same plane trip. Students, I hope you are keeping up with your Experiencing God Bible Study. I was struck by today’s lesson on John 5. The idea that even Jesus could only do what the Father was doing is amazing. As we are here in Poland and you are home in Spartanburg – may we both be looking for where God is at work and join Him in what he’s up to.
God bless you all – keep praying for us! We should be in Poland by mid day on Wednesday (your time). Remember, I will be calling the students at mside at around 6:15pm eastern time at the church. Talk to you then!
