For about a week recently, we were able to utilize the powerful art form of “Mime” to share Bible truth, spiritual topics and build new relationships with students, refugees and members of local churches in our community.
Our entire team was involved to some degree. Steve’s job was to lead the team, organize ministry activities, find housing for the team, keep them fed and to attend to their needs. We were able to partner with our local German Church, G5 Church, Black Forest Academy, our Refugee Ministry partners and CSK Elementary School located in a nearby village.
It’s a powerful and captivating ministry tool that has no language barrier, as mime does not require vocalization to convey a story or message. Mime is essentially theatre, where the team uses facial expressions and body movements to communicate emotion and story through carefully orchestrated skits, often with music. Some of the Bible stories they share are David and Goliath, The Good Samaritan, The Resurrection and more.
This team is on a 3-month ministry tour that will take them to 6-countries including France, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Italy and America.
In a post-modern and increasingly secular culture like Germany, this kind of approach to sharing Gospel truth and promoting thought and conversation on spiritual topics is highly effective and compelling.
In prayer and through God’s leading, we will always try to find new, creative and unique ways to share a message of hope and an abundant life only found in following and being a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We continue to be grateful for each of you who pray for our family and love & support us in this Kingdom building work!!
With much love in Christ Jesus,
steve, dawn, bianca and sofia
