Dwazezaken, originally uploaded by chanchanchepon.
This word translates to Foolish Things. It is the name of a Christian cafe just outside the redlight district of Amsterdam.

Saturday evening we journeyed there together to grab a little dinner, and to connect with some of the people of the city/missionaries who are in the city long term. It was a very relaxing evening with some great conversations.

This cafe is located across from the train station, and it is absolutely beautiful.

The food was great, and it made for a great way to spend the evening. Because we stayed for a while, we were able to get a feel for the pulse of the city and observe.

One thing remains true no matter where I travel--people are really similar. You steer away from the language, and some of the foods, and really we are all very closely connected. We all laugh and cry. We all have hurts and triumphs. We all carry wounds, and at the same time want to make a difference in the world.

Pray that our small team can make a difference in this place.

As I write this, I am praying that you will make a difference where God has you today!
