April 2019 Update

We are so thankful for your prayers and support as we serve among 
victims of human trafficking here in Europe.
 Prayer walking in the snow, sleet, rain, and even a little bit of hail!

Please continue to pray with us as we pray around new locations
that we are hoping to visit inside very soon.
Small gift bags given to the women on International Women’s Day.  
Please continue to pray with us as we reach out to these women.
Please pray for our three new friends who have been baptized recently 
as they  continue to grow in their faith.
Easter chocolate and the Easter story from the Bible in 10 languages.  
Please pray that our friends will begin to understand about a personal relationship with Jesus; through the story of his death, burial, and resurrection!

Banana Boat Update February 2019

We are enjoying the beautiful snow and our new home in Kindsbach, Germany….

…including continuing to prayer walk in the snow.

Please pray for us on the 13th, as we are hoping to make visits inside the new locations that we have been prayer walking for the past few months.  We will be taking Valentine’s Day gifts and Bible verses about God’s love in 9 different languages.

Thank you for praying for our time in Brussels.  Tiffne really enjoyed speaking at the European Baptist Federation Children’s and Youth Leaders Conference for the Anti-trafficking working group.  We enjoyed worshipping, fellowshipping, and collaborating with people from over 20 European and Middle Eastern countries.

Please pray for Dylan who will be having a small oral surgery on the 27th.

Started the New Year off with a bang!  We enjoyed our first New Year celebration in Germany by watching all the neighbors set off fireworks. 

Jumping right back into ministry this New Year 
by making visits and prayer walking in the snow!

Banana Boat Update

Christmas 2018

Recently our family moved from Strasbourg, France to Kindsbach, Germany.  During this time of transition, we often return to Strasbourg to visit and continue in ministry.  On December 5th, we were in Strasbourg to make Christmas visits with the ladies-in-waiting; to give small Christmas gifts and the Bible story from Matthew and Luke in their own language.  We also visited the Christmas markets near the beautiful cathedral and the area where just one week later became the most recent location for a terrorist attack.  We are praying for our friends in Strasbourg; those who were at the location only hours before the incident, or decided not to go because of the weather, and those who live in the neighborhood where the police were tracking down the shooter.  Please pray with us for our friends in Strasbourg as they continue to live and minister during this difficult time.

Here in Kindsbach, we are also involved in ministry.  During this season of giving, we have enjoyed working with a ministry to refugees in giving backpacks and school supplies; and reaching out to victims of human trafficking by giving small gifts, Christmas cookies, and the Christmas story in many languages.

As the New Year approaches, we are looking forward to continued opportunities in ministry. Tiffne is happy to be a part of the European Baptist Federations Anti-Trafficking working group; who are passionate about networking with and mobilizing Baptists to walk into the darkest corners of our world with the light of Jesus’ love. Please pray for Tiffne as she speaks at the European Baptist Federations Children and Youth leaders’ conference in January in Brussels, Belgium.  Also, please continue to pray as we continue to reach out to victims of human trafficking.

Thank you so much for partnering with us in ministry!
Merry Christmas from the Whitleys

Tiffne and Joel Whitley
