Family!!Things are great in Vienna, I must say its quite a blessing serving here in a great city like Vienna. You meet people from around the whole world and the neat thing is that the gospel is for everyone even if they are just here for a couple days. Even if its quick it can still have an impact, even as quick as one stop on the subway. There is great public transportation in Vienna and sometimes either us or them are just going one stop but neat to talk with them. This last week we talked with this guy who we could tell was having a bad day, we didnt have time to say much but I hope as we went on it was the smile on our faces that helped him along his way. I have learned a lot about the importance of the light we have and share. I am so grateful for a great companion who loves to share that light and doesnt care who its with or who is starring or making fun. He has great faith and I learn lots from him daily and glad we can share that light together. One neat story about sharing it quick and then moving on was we had just came from an appointment and we were walking on the street and 4 young adults come walking in the other direction with beer in their hands and I was thinking this should be good. We stopped them and 3 of them just laughed and kept walking but one stopped and asked what we were doing and we had a great discussion about faith and he told us how important faith is to him in his life. It was just really good even though during it his friends were waiting for him down the road and yelling for him to come but he stayed and it was just the coolest. Found out he was just here for the weekend but that he is from Stuttgart. I loved that and told him I lived there and loved it, we told him there are also missionaries there that can meet with him so we got his number and will pass it on. So grateful that we are in this together and that it is his work not ours!
