Leipzig, Germany

Happy Monday!
As the first ministry spotlight in what I hope to be a long and fruitful list of ministries, I have selected Mark and Karen Abercrombie in Leipzig, Germany.  Enjoy!

Mark and Karen Abercrombie have been serving God in Leipzig, Germany for just over 10 years!  They have had an incredible journey in getting to this point.  Primarily, they reach individuals using the Let's Start Talking (Friend Speak) format; that is, they teach conversational English using the Bible as a guide.  I had the wonderful opportunity, during the summer of 2010, to spend a month with them getting to know them, their heart for the Lord, and the wonderful work they do.  They put out a monthly newsletter providing contact information, the website of the church in Leipzig, and information about what has happened in the past month.  I am unable to upload a newsletter until I figure out how to link it, but my research will continue in this area.

The Abercrombie's decided to become missionaries in Germany after they had a foreign exchange student from a small town in Germany one year.  They poured their hearts out to him and helped him to develop a close, personal relationship with Jesus.  The Abercrombie's visited him not too long after he returned and saw a need for people in the country to truly experience the love of Jesus.  During my stay with them, I learned about the importance of staying vigilant in cultivating my relationship with God so that I not be adversely affected by the world.  Mark and Karen do so by having quiet time with God every morning before going out to begin their day.

Mark and Karen Abercrombie are two of my very favorite people, which is why I have chosen them to be the first spotlight in this blog.  If you are interested in contacting the Abercrombie's, the best way is via e-mail at  If you are searching for a ministry to support in which you feel as though you are truly a part of the ministry, get excited about this one!  Mark and Karen's newsletters give you the inside scoop about what is going on so you will know where your money is going and how the kingdom of God is being advanced in Germany.

Till Next Time,
