Sweden: Days 10 - 13

The past few days have been very busy and so much has happened. Friday we helped with the youth group at New Life Church in Alvik, after which we had some divine appointments and saw God lead in a couple different situations. Ben befriended a young man named Iwo. Saturday we went to the park with the coffee wagon, where we met some more interesting people, some friendly and open to what we had to say, others more argumentative. Ben got to use his Biblical studies, while Kelsey Larson got to practice her Spanish. We also met two young men who some of the boys (Geoff, Noah, Jon and Ben) played football with. Saturday night we had a live music cafe night, which was a great time of fellowship and God working again. Sunday we helped with Kid's Life at New Life during the first service, and performed the Lifehouse skit during the second service. It went great and had a fantastic reaction from the congregation. We are preparing to perform it in the streets on Saturday. After church, we came back to our "home" for another service with the church plant (Fridemskyrkan), which really touched our hearts for the darkness in Sweden (and globally).

Please continue to pray:
-For our ministry with the high school in the mornings. We will be there Tuesday morning through Friday morning. We desire boldness to speak Jesus' name and to build relationships with these kids.
-For our street outreach performing the Lifehouse skit. There are a few details that we still need to figure out, namely for a portable sound system that is battery operated.
-To stay refreshed.
-Thanks for the church body here. They have been an extremely huge blessing to us and we are totally loving the opportunities to get to know them, encourage them, and be encouraged by them.
We love you all!

p.s. Happy 12th Birthday to my (Taylor's) little sister Annie!

Here's our latest video, in which Ben shares about the past weekend.
