Hi from Germany,
One of our main stomping grounds is Europe. It is a place that has been on our hearts for over 30 years now. We have lived here for almost 20 years and during this time we have had the privilege of working with such a great team of people who have poured their lives into this continent. With over 730 million people residing in Europe the need is great and we must continue to expand the team and the work to reach more people through Evangelism, Church Planting, RHEMA Bible Training Centers, Leadership/Discipleship Training and books.
The past few months we have traveled in Europe, USA and Australia ministering in churches, bible schools, seminars and lunches. If you pray or partner in any way you were a part of each and every person who was ministered to along the way.
Enjoy a few pictures and see you at the bottom.

Pastors and Alumni Meeting in Athens (Here are some of our Albanian minister friends)
We traveled to Australia to minister at RHEMA Australia where Tony and Patsy Cameneti Pastor RHEMA Family Church and Direct RHEMA Australia. We spoke to Pastors, RBTC class, church services and individuals. We enjoyed the time immensely with the Cameneti's, and all the people we met through RFC, RBTC, Pastors meetings etc.
This was a family trip also. We have been saving frequent flyer miles for years and we used a chunk of them on this trip. Michelle and I had a few days off towards the end of our time in Australia and the kids got out and about to some fun places while we were teaching.

We flew Los Angeles - Brisbane - Los Angeles so on the drive back to Tulsa we did a quick stop at the Grand Canyon. We had stopped by a couple of years ago but it was windy and cold. It was the exact repeat weather wise from the last stop.

We had a Dutch RHEMA Day Lunch and this was a picture in the restaurant. The Dutch are the original Cheese heads.
In May and June we do a lot of ministry in Europe. We will be in Germany, Switzerland, Sicily and Norway.
The Greater Europe Book Project is progressing. If you want to reach many people this is a good project. We will have a video available soon that gives more insight into this project.
