Camping a mile above Sea Level

Posted by Kim Velting on

The internet access was, as expected – unavailable, unless we had access through a cell phone – which we didn’t. So, we have a rather long post today. But if it is any consolation, it will probably be our last post until we return. Barb, Lilly and I took the trolley to church...

Day 4 for Detroit Team:   Jon writes, "Today we entered mosques, not only to observe, but to engage. The ladies entered the large Yemeni mosque through the ladies entrance, a small door on the backside of the building. They said it felt like being devalued. They entered a room with 5 Yemeni...

Hamtramck, Detroit Day 2

Hamtramck Day 3 Mosque Engagement

Posted by Natalie Uecker on

After 8 hours of engagement on Day 3, Zach & Jon Nuenke were still begging for more. Jon had never been to a mosque, and Zach is a real EV "tiger", so we drove to this little slice of Yemen in Detroit. It was honestly the best mosque experience I've ever had! We definitely received a lot of...

Ready for Camping

Posted by Kim Velting on

We had a very pleasant day today. Starting with our first solo venture on the transit system, getting from our borrowed apartment to the church. The service was an amazing time of worship - even though we did not have an interpreter to understand the words or songs, we felt the presence of the...

Midway Point

Posted by Kim Velting on

We just returned from the Leader's Retreat. As we had thought, there was no WiFi without a phone (the Phone signal was very strong), which is why we haven't had a post in a few days. The retreat was a great deal of activity. Each of the different ministry teams had planning and operations...
