Collecting old D-Mark – for charity

I am collecting money. Although you no longer can pay with D-Mark more than 13 Billion D-Mark are still lying around in drawers, boxes, cabinets…lakes, fountains…
I want that money.
Not for myself, but for a charity that is h

elping people in Afghanistan to ressurect their lives.
It is still possible to change old D-Mark to Euro, but only in a few national Banks in Germany – for example in Berlin. So if you still have old D-Mark i. e. from past travels you can send it to me (Laubacher Str. 16 II , D- 14197 Berlin) – or give it to friends who come to Germany. I will exchange it and donate it.

Portal for Christians

Met with a bunch of people to start a portal for Christians in Berlin. Pretty good. Won´t be involved in the process myself for a long time, but definetely wanted to be part of starting it…love starting new stuff! It´s pretty good! Will see what happens in the next months as the portal emerges…[will let you know!]

Together for Berlin

The network together for Berlin yesterday officially blessed Axel Nehlsen for his new job as the “administrative leader” (Geschaeftsfuehrer). It was a wonderful service, celebrating what God

was and is doing in the city …and will be doing as the body moves closer together. I am excited. And Axel and the other men in the leadership of Together for Berlin are great people. I love them. Glad to be in a city like this.


Visit Berlin

Walked through Berlin with my friends from Prague…well….can´t really say we walked through Berlin…it was more like going through all the thrift store shops and finding hippie clothes and huge shoes (size 45) for them….Andrew sais that to him Berlin seems like a city always rising up….a new group of people moves in and the city rises again….interesting way of describing the place, but it does make sense somehow….

24-7 Berlin

24-7 Berlin has started. 2 weeks of around the clock worship and prayer in the heart of Berlin organized by the youth of Berlin. Pretty cool! Glad they have the passion and drive to get this going …and the grace to allow us older ones to participate.
