Invited by an older couple, who have been investing in her life for many years,

a young woman has been attending the Dresden, Germany church for a few months.  She also attended a 6-week “My Life Workshop” seminar offered in January, exploring the experiences and influences throughout life that shape us…leading to the question of God’s role and plan in it all.

Mindy Boyd wrote, “God has clearly been working in her life, because somewhat out of the blue, she announced that she wanted to become a Christian.  She asked me if she could come over and pray with me.  I invited her over for cake and coffee (a central aspect of German culture) and explained again what it means to give your life to Christ.  Then she prayed and asked Jesus to come into her life!  It felt very much like reaping a harvest that someone else had planted and had been watering for years.”

Mindy added, “The young woman has a difficult home situation and needs prayer as she seeks to follow Jesus in an environment that is somewhat hostile toward her newfound faith.  And please thank the Lord for people like this older couple, who humbly and faithfully invest in the lives of people like her.”
