... to Germany. 🙂
In case you didn't know, we will be in Germany very soon! Due to the upcoming third Corona wave in Africa, and the expected border closures in Lesotho, we have decided to come to Germany earlier than planned.
Instead of mid-May we will now land in Berlin already on April 3. We have already left Lesotho on March 30th and are now in South Africa to do all the necessary Corona tests and to apply for exemptions to enter Germany from a high risk area.
The first 14 days in Berlin we will spend in quarantine.
Some more info from Lesotho....
The Water project we were able to bring forward at the last minute (really on the last day before departure) so far that now fresh spring water arrives continuously at 4 water taps in the village. We hope that this will ensure the water supply even in the upcoming dry season in winter, at least provisionally.
As soon as we are back in Lesotho we will hopefully be able to finish the whole project.
We thank all who have so generously supported this project in prayer and financially.
This project has opened most doors and hearts in our village so far. We have been able to get to know many people personally and most of them have now understood that we do not go back to our home country after a few months of development work, as is often the case here in Africa. This has created trust and openness.
The last few months we've been able to Church Planting Ministry after the Corona restrictions in Lesotho were eased. The first workbook (Step One - Redemption), which we translated into the local language Sesotho, has proven to be a great success. But we would like to tell you more about this in person in a few weeks. As soon as the current Corona restrictions allow, we will be happy to come to your church, home group, prayer group or living room to share many stories and wonderful testimonies of what God is doing in Lesotho right now.
For now, just this... In the last three months, 5 more discipleship groups have been started in 5 villages. Through the workbook, many now feel able to invite their friends and neighbors to learn more about the Bible and hear what Jesus did for each one on the cross.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you all....
Your Schmidt family
