New Hope Baptist Church, Germany - July 2002
Rick, Jackie and Angela Bonds have been ministering in Europe for about 7 years now.  Rick pastors this church and is supported through BIMI mission board.  The church is located in Heinsburg, Germany near Holland. 

Sunday morning I encouraged the church family from the book of Daniel.  Our subject:  "What is the worth of a soul?"

Many of their members come from the Geilenkirchen NATO AWAX  military base.  Their membership changes regulary as military families are moving in and out of the area.  This allows the influence of New Hope to reach other places in the world.

Please pray for the Bonds family, that God would continue to bless their ministry among those in the military.

After ministry in India, I flew into Germany on friday evening.  The next day, it was an hour and a half train ride from Cologne to the Netherlands border where Pastor Rick Bonds met me.  We drove straight to the church picnic, for the July fourth weekend.  There was plenty of food left and it was a great time of fellowship with the church members.
