Do everything whole heartedly!!! Tut alles mit Leib und Seele....!

Colossians 3:23-24 23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Was ihr auch tut, tut es mit Leib und Seele, so als wäre es für den Herrn und nicht für Menschen, im Wissen, dass ihr dafür vom Herrn das Erbe empfangen werdet. Dient Christus, dem Herrn! Kolosser 3,23-24 .

An Upward Journey

So, here we are. At the beginning of a new journey. I was told and encouraged by a good friend Kathy Greer to start blogging about what is going on in our lives and that is my plan from now on. I always wondered why people blog. Often I thought that bloggers really only think they are important and want to focus everyone's attention towards themselves. That is probably true for at least 80% of the bloggers out there. But then I started following blogs that where different. And this is how I understood them to be different. Everything they wrote was reflecting something beyond themselves. Some where blogging to shine light on a cause. In fact most of the blogs I am following are families talking about their special needs child and in so they are including and informing a community of like minded families. The blogs I personally find most uplifting are just that....uplifting....they lift our attention upwards. Upward means to me they include a loving overall power, maker, creator and savior who lives "up" in heaven, but mostly is their everyday lives. He is consistently a part of their sorrows and their joys. And that is where I can connect. That is what I want to reflect. Yes, it will be our family we are going to talk about in this blog but our family would not be our family without God and his son yes, we cannot but include him.
We believe God has made our family. He has given us 3 beautiful children. Funny, rambunctious 1 year old Caleb William (lovingly called Beebab by Ana),  beautiful, curly headed 4 year old Didi Hadassa (also called Lydia), and 6 year old Ana Katharina who God, in his wisdom, decided to give an extra chromosome.
Then there is Richard, head of our household and head of the Youth ministry department at Creekside Community Church and myself, Simone.
All of us are being called to go to Germany as Missionaries. Yes, all of us. We are one unit. Every one of us will form and guide our decisions we are going to make while preparing to leave California.
We are looking back on the path we have come and stand in awe and amazement how God has built and formed us and we are looking ahead in awe and amazement to welcome the new path and adventure he has planned for us....
Stay tuned!

Dare to give up clarity

Ann Voskamp
Dare to give up clarity — because God gives a call. Dare to give up life road maps — because God gives a relationship. Dare to live without answers — because God gives His hand. Dare to live by faith — not by feelings, formulas, facts or fences.
Nothing is impossible with God.

Richard and Simone Moore have been Missionaries in Germany for two years. They have been working with The Theology & Innovation department of TeachBeyond for that time. They Minister to youth, churches, church plants, & ministry through music with the Theology & Innovation dept. of TeachBeyond in GERMANY.

The Moore's are responsible to raise 100% of their financial support and income. Please pray about coming onto their support team you can begin your journey in partnering with them in the gospel at their secure giving link HERE. Please pray about partnering with them in training Churches in Germany and throughout the world to be missional in their own context and in their own communities by being the hands and feet of Jesus.

Richard and Simone were long time youth pastor at Creekside Community Church in San Leandro, CA. They continue to implement what they learned at Creekside during those years. Creekside employs similar missional concepts in the San Francisco Bay Area. They continue to seek to spread God’s love and the message of his liberation and salvation among new friends in Germany.

The Moore's reach into the German community with music, family outreach, disability ministries, evangelism and discipleship. While Richard studies the language, Simone has started a music studio which she uses to reach out to families of similar interest and is making friends with many neighbors. 

The Moore's will not survive in this venture without your concerted and specific prayer for their work. Would you also please consider supporting us financially? There are three ways you could support the Moore's...
