An invitation to our current and future friends in Borken

Borkener Zeitung Lokaler Sport page, Samstag, 15. Januar 2011
Today a half-page article came out in the Borkener Zeitung about us.  Thank you for the special attention, we only wish we had a better handle on the German language to actually read the article. Hopefully our quotes translated well.  We're glad we can share our embarrassing stories with the city.  I guess if we didn't feel comfortable about it, we wouldn't share our stories with the rest of the world on our blog. 

The purpose of this post is to make a request that we didn't mention during the interview with the newspaper. We were asked about the biggest differences between living in America and living in Germany, and although we gave honest answers, we did leave out one important difference: in America we were heavily involved with our church, but here we don't really know any other Christians.

We are still involved with our church in Jacksonville, Fla. - Celebration Church - and still attend by watching the services online every Sunday afternoon at 15:30 or 17:30 at But what is missing for us is the fellowship with other Christians.

The homepage for Celebration Church - - check it out!

So, we are using this blog post to put out an invitation to anyone in the Borken area who would like to start a Bible study with us.  If you're interested, please email me at:

Secondly, if any of you are interested in joining us to attend one of Celebration Church's services online on an upcoming Sunday, also please email me.

Thanks and we hope to hear from you!

I never realized you were part of Celebration. I've been going pretty religiously (ha) for about 6 months. I hope all is well :)

That's awesome! We have gone there for over 5 years and miss it so much. We are excited to end the 21 day fast this Sunday.
