witnessing with waffles

i just got back from a loooong and cold (barely above freezing) day with gospel tribe. we met up early enough to have been done with prayer and set up by about 9am. if you know me, you know what a sacrifice that was! i started out with a very bad migraine, that woke me up! (ok, it was more effective than an alarm at that hour..) after taking the "blue pill" and waiting an hour, i made it to gospel tribe, shaking and queesy and aparently pale enough to cause several people to ask if i need to sit down. and i did. they prayed, the pill kicked in, and things got better.

so how are waffles a witness? and what of? we passed them out for free at the werder platz to.. well, anyone who wanted one. we also had a hot fruit juice/tea/spices punch that really was good for warmth. the witness we were hoping to make was one of God's love. it was surpirising the various reactions we got- some people were surprised and joyful, some were skeptical and asked what the catch was, some wouldn't even stop long enough to hear what we were offering. every hour we sang some christian songs, did a short theatrical sketch, and had a message. this went until a bit past one.

after our meeting to sum it all up, we were treated to homemade eggplant lasagne from one of the teams mom- a real italian! a real treat to warm up to. then i stopped by a special event at kubik with a friend and came home... a long bike ride in the cold. my fingers are still defrosting and i can't feel my cheeks yet..... it's winter!
