A pretty spontaneous decision...

We are going to come to the Netherlands and Germany! That was a pretty spontaneous decision. Our decision seems to be just as spontaneous as a necessity as dodging ice floes at sea.

As summer invites people to go fishing and hunting or search for mussels and berries, the weekends will be filled mainly with that. And we can imagine it. We spent the whole winter here, experienced a hurricane that is unprecedented (strongest since 26 years) and understand that one takes the chance to get out of the village. We also suddenly had to stop using the location for our Sundayservices (it is being used in weekends to care for children whose parents are drunk). Along with the coming of our second child, all this has contributed to our decision to come on leave to the Netherlands, because we can not do much in the summer as people will be out.

In August and September we will be in the Netherlands and Germany, about which we will send further information soon. After quite a few inquiries and research, we found out that the baby is allowed to travel without a passport to Iceland and the Netherlands.

Today, Sunday 22 May, has been our last Sunday service. Katharina is mainly prepairing for childbirth here in Greenland. The course that she gave was completed with many blessings and hard work and the only thing that keeps going (until birth) is the Bibleschool on Friday. Would we still be able to purchase a building before we leave?

A warm greeting and God bless you!

Peter, Katharina and Joël
