Schützenfest in Stederdorf, Germany

Schützenfest in Stederdorf, Germany from David & Amanda Knapp on Vimeo. Schützenfest is like a carnival with several parades that last over an entire weekend. I believe the festivities started on Friday morning and lasted until basically Monday night. Schützenfest is celebrated in everyone town; this happened to be our weekend. It is a gathering of marksmen. We saw men with uniforms decorated with several medals. We decided to go to the fest Saturday night about 10PM. There was a tent with lots of people waiting for a concert drinking beer, bumper cars, booths to shoot targets...

Bring It On

Bring It On

Last night, we had our first Let's Start Talking information meeting for 2010.  Two years ago when we did this, we had maybe 5-7 people show up.  So needless to say my expectations for a big show was minimal.  Well, what do you know God proved me wrong.  Last night we had 38 people come to the meeting and sign up for English Lessons.  God is Good!!!  This is a way bigger turnout than I ever thought would happen, so I am very excited. Today I have started with my first reader, and all is going well.  Then I got a phone call, yet another person wants to sign up -- hooray!  Wow, now how to schedule...

Cold German Day

Cold German Day

Work and Play Christusgemeinde Way from David & Amanda Knapp on Vimeo. This video was taken on Thursday. I think it was like 35 degrees outside and on top of that it was raining. I was shivering. Also I was exhausted for two reasons: The first is that I was still trying to get over jet lag and the second reason is the cold makes me sleepy.

Lesson from 1st week here: My life source has to be Jesus because there is no way I can do ministry in Germany without Him. In actuality it doesn't really make...

David and Amanda Knapp’s Move To Peine, Germany

David and Amanda Knapp’s Move To Peine, Germany

David and Amanda Knapp's Move to Germany from David & Amanda Knapp on Vimeo. On May 2, Amanda and I left from Tulsa International Airport and eventually made it to Hannover, Germany on May 3rd. According to our schedule we had 3 layovers that ranged from 30 minutes to an hour and a half. Our first flight landed us in Houston. We raced to our gate only to discover that our flight to Frankfurt was delayed. We were delayed for 2 hours. The terror alert being orange may have had something to do with it but really we are not sure because they didn't give us a reason. We landed in Frankfurt,...
