AUSTRIA: Tobias and Esther Giersch in Arriach
The Teabus ministry started again at the end of October. However, fresh Covid measures that were introduced in November only allow people who are vaccinated or recovered into the bus. Disappointingly, many of the key members of the bus team are not vaccinated and we might not get a viable team together for the rest of the year, which is very frustrating. Please pray for this situation and for new team members.

It was so good to be together with the ECM Austria team at Prayer Days in October.

The whole weekend was vibrant, inspiring, thought-provoking and, best of all, 3-dimensional!
