Goodbye dear saints, we will miss you. (Although we are keeping one of you with us for a few days!)

In the early afternoon, we drove to the Netherlands. One group drove first to Delft, another group drove to Ter Aar, and another group to Utrecht.

Those of us in Utrecht went kayaking on the canals.

Afterwards we went to Spakenburg for a BBQ with the families there.

Those of us who went to Delft visited the town. Then we joined the group in Ter Aar and also had a BBQ with the saints.

Feasting and enjoying and blending!

Meanwhile, elsewhere, a couple of the Dutch bothers decided to jump in the lake behind their house and pull another brother in a giant tyre!

For this last part of the trip, we are all taking hospitality with the saints.

How wonderful to always be home in the church!

VIDEO: Singing in German

The words are below in both German and English, so you can sing along too.

Psalm 116:12-13

Was sol lich geben dem Herrn
Für alls, für alls, was Er getan hat für mich?
Ich nehm den Kelch der Errettung,
Und ruf, und ruf, und rufe an den Namen des Herrn.

Psalm 116:12-13

What shall I give unto the Lord
For all, for all, for all He’s done for me?
I’ll take the cup of salvation,
And call, and call, and call upon the name of the Lord.
