From a Partner Church!

Thank you very much for your prayers and thoughts for our dedication service. The new chapel was totally full of people....We prayed, sang, read from the Bible...We are in the beginning. We pray and think about other activities. We are looking for possibilities...


We see this new church as the first step -- God's gift for following service. We believe God will serve through our hands.

Once more, thank you very much for your service...Thanks to The United Methodist Church. THANK YOU GOD!...We all hope you will visit our church and Pilzen in the next year. God Bless You.

It was overwhelming!

We had no idea that we could tear down the entire building; but we did, and therefore saved the Freiberg United Methodist Church a lot of money. (This had to be done before they could build a new church.) Most important, besides the hard work...was getting to know the German Methodists. Their hospitality was so gracious, and we all felt so very close to our host families. They told us over and over again that by being there and helping them so much, we gave them great hope and encouragement for the future. They can see American sisters and brothers in Christ working so hard to help them. It was overwhelming.
