I’m in a small town in Germany. My closest neighbors are a few sheep, a nursing home, and the forest on the hill.
You would think that I couldn’t be connected to the outside world in a place like this, but that’s not the case. Especially not today:
In the morning
I heard about South-East-Asia and about connection with Christians in other cultures.
I heard about the history of pioneer missionary work in Papua Neuguinea.
How to respect the culture you interact with, even if you don’t agree with it.
In the afternoon
I got to share about a humanitarian project that my mom is sponsoring in Uganda.
And in the evening
I recieved a new letter from my sponsor child in Rwanda.
So yes, I live in a small town. Next to a few sheep, a nursing home, and the forest on the hill.
But I’m grateful to know that we can be connected to other cultures and places. Here, it’s as my professors said: “In Ewersbach, you’re with your back to the woods – and the world is in front of you.”
