Ilka has spent time with a number of precious people; family, friends, church members … she has also been really blessed by other churches in the area where she was able to give a report and share about NTM. A few more such opportunities to share are coming up in the next couple of weeks.
Recently two young ladies from Ilka’s church left for Africa. They just finished school this summer, are both 18 and distantly related to her family. They will spend the year in Malawi to help home-school some MKs and get involved with young people at a church there. Pray for them, all Ilka has heard is that they made it safely. Many people from Ilka’s home church are worried about them, but Ilka thinks it is great how God is drawing people’s attention to mission!
At the end of September a real highlight was a church weekend at a youth hostel in a small tourist town at the river Rhine. Most church members attended. A special speaker—a retired missionary and founder of a German mission organisation, who the church has known and appreciated for decades—gave several messages from the Word. The rest of the time was spent having fellowship; singing, sharing, hiking, eating, playing games etc.
