This has been a time of both rejoicing and of weeping as we both celebrate the life of Jodi Holzhausen who graduated fully into God’s presence on April 16, 2012 after a battle of several years with cancer, but also mourn her absence among us. We are deeply moved by the huge loss experienced by her husband Stefan, their four children, Lucy, Lucan, Tobi and Thomas and all those who her life touched; and we support them with our prayers.

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’.
