Recently we asked our missionaries to share with us a recipe from the country they serve in that we could share with our supporters. Some of these dishes are made in celebrations and others to share in small groups. We want to encourage you to make these dishes with your family this holiday season and to be reminded of and praying for our KMUSA missionaries serving in Europe!
Today we share a recipe from Mary Ellis serving in Germany! Mary serves in Cafe Story which gives her an opportunity to use food to connect with the people of East Germany. Today she shares something American that she has made for many of the Germans at the cafe and has received a great review! She has also had the opportunity to make it to a few birthday parties!
“Please pray for new opportunities to share the Gospel. East Germany is one of the most atheist areas in the world and can be a very difficult culture to connect with.” – Mary Ellis
