Ministry partner update: ICOMB – February 2023

Introducing the global family: 

Vereinigung der Menoniten Brudergemein von Bavaria (VMBB) 

ICOMB member church 

Here is some information about the church in Burghausen, Bavaria (VMBB). 

The church is doing well. Enjoying a period of peacefulness and growth. Since the war in Ukraine started, many refugees have come to Germany. We have been able to take care of a number of them, and about 20-25 refugees join us at the church services. We are able to translate the service into their language thanks to Ukrainians who have lived in Germany for a number of years already. Some of them have accepted Christ and are interested in getting baptized this year. In the fall of 2022, we also started a home fellowship group with them. We want to start a baptism discipleship class in the spring. Please pray for these people. 

We have now a number of children from different cultures in the church (Ukraine, Eritrea, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Brazil). Please pray for more Sunday school teachers and the ability to meet their needs. We plan a children's camp, a junior camp and a youth camp this summer. 

Please pray for good preparation and training of young leaders. Also for all the kids who will join the camps. 

Greetings from Bavaria,
