As Christians that is what we believe for ourselves, but also for the people around us. Our everyday life bears witness to what that means in practice. Our daily testimony! In the Crossroads community we can show each other how we translate our believes in our everyday life. In family life children are watching their parents for this. Parents are the children’s role models on how our believes makes a difference in our lives. What we do today, creates opportunities for the future!
On the 14th of February 25 people attended the second Parent Seminar to get inspired by speaker Rob Hondsmerk on ‘Christian family life in a secular world’.

Last Sunday we had a fantastic Christmas Lunch at the Ministry Center sponsored by the Care team. After kicking off with a short word and a blessing by Bill Hoopes, we could all start of with our lunch program. In total, 46 people joined for a 4 course traditional English Christmas dinner as well as Christmas carols, a Christmas meditation by Bob Phillips and a Bible Quiz.
On the 4th of December we started a new group called: “Vogels” for the 2 year old Dutch
speaking children in Crossroads. We were having more then 30 children in the two crèches
(age 0-2) on a regular basis on a Sunday morning. To ensure the safety of the children we
don’t allow more than 15 children per classroom and we had to start sending children with
their parents away. Not so welcoming!
On Saturday December 17th, we celebrated Christmas at the Farm with the children of Crossroads and many visitors. It was a great celebration in which the donkey, sheep and camel told the Christmas story, each from their unique point of view.
