I (Stephen) am back from my trip to Germany. It was a great trip but am glad to be back home with my family. For the most part the travel was pretty uneventful, although, I did see a man in shorts so tight and short I actually thought he was only wearing boxer briefs.
I arrived in Wüstenrot on Monday evening and we began all of our meetings on Tuesday morning. We discussed everything form working with interns and Mission Academy students to Kontaktmission's growing footprint and the challenges that come with this growth. These meetings are what helps us as Kontaktmission operate in the most productive way possible with the least amount of interference to the missionary. I am constantly amazed by the innovation, vision, and leadership qualities the other regional leaders bring to the meetings. I am truly grateful I get to be a part of the meetings with these guys.
Aside from the meetings it is always great to have the chance to talk with friends working all over the world and get to know other Kontaktmission leaders better. We also have friends that live near Wüstenrot and so it was great to get to see Sascha and Eva while I was there, even if only for an evening.
All in all it was a good trip and I was glad I was able to go. We are so blessed to be a part of such a great God honoring organisation.
