Journey Teams: Netherlands (6)

May 31, 2017

This Saturday, we woke up and had breakfast, packed lunch and headed to the train station. Between trains and stations, many of us got to have conversations with other passengers. It was a joyous experience to listen to the connections being made and the name of Jesus being proclaimed!

After arriving in the city of Haarlem, we headed to the Corrie Ten Boom house for a tour. We were struck by the faith of Corrie and her family, Christians who hid Jews in their home during World War II. They placed their trust in a big God who had a plan for their life that was beyond their comprehension. Joining us on the tour of the Ten Boom house was a couple from Northern Ireland. A few members of our team got to connect with and encourage them, our fellow brother and sister in Christ. It was just another example of how the blood of Christ unifies people and cultures from all over the world.

Near the Ten Boom house, we found a street with shade to eat lunch (it's been really hot for the past few days) and then headed to church that was built from the 1400’s to the 1600’s. And we got to hear a men’s choir perform - it created an awesome atmosphere as we observed the sloping ceilings and stained glass windows. From the church we had some free time to walk around and then met up again to go see the inside of a Dutch windmill. A word of advice: never in get in the way of those blades when they’re spinning.

For dinner, we had some real Dutch pancakes and then made our way back to Putten (and got a few minutes of extra team hang-out time when we missed one of our trains). There were even more conversations with train passengers and many people got to slip Jesus into their conversations.

The team ended the evening on a high note. We got the opportunity to spend some time pointing out how we saw God at work that day and to encourage our fellow team members. David read Psalm 91:9 to finish the meeting. They are the verses that are connected with Corrie Ten Boom’s home: “If you make the Most High your hiding place – even the Lord, who is who is my refuge – then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.”

We serve a big God and today He showed us that!
