(GERMANY) The Harvest is Plentiful! Joint Autumn Bible Conference 2022
By J*osua Kim
"He told them, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.'" (Luke 10:2)
Heidelberg UBF, Darmstadt 1, 2 UBF and Frankfurt 3 UBF had a joint Autumn Bible conference at the Lachen Retreat Centre from November 18-20, 2022.
On Friday evening, N*oah (Heidelberg) gave an opening message titled, “Friend, Your Sins Are Forgiven” based on Luke 5:17-32. On Saturday, E*lina (Darmstadt's 2) delivered a message titled “Martha and Mary” based on Luke 10:38-42. She forgave those who bullied her when she listened to the word of God like Maria. H*enoch's (Heidelberg) message was on Luke 10:1-16, “The Harvest is Plentiful but the Workers Are Few.” Although Germany is very intolerant towards the spreading of the gospel, H*enoch emphasized that we should continue to ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest field.
In the evening, H*ana (Darmstadt 2), A*ngelika (Heidelberg), W*esley (Heidelberg), J*osef (Darmstadt 1), M*oses (Darmstadt 1), and E*llen (Darmstadt 1) shared their gracious testimonies. There was a disciple ordination ceremony for J*onathan (Heidelberg) who confessed his love to Jesus based on John 21 “Do You Love Me?” Afterwards, there was Praise & Worship Night, and everyone worshiped God passionately.
On Sunday, the Group Bible study was on Acts 18:1-11, and R*einer delivered the message, "I Have Many People in This City." He encouraged everyone to pray with the vision of God to share the gospel of Jesus with others, especially the younger generation.
