this is why

this is Andrew. he's one of the people from the church in Amsterdam. this picture sums up Amsterdam for me. this is why i want to go back.

no....not specifically because of Andrew... whatever you're thinkin just stop right now ;). but do you see the way he's hugging me? that's Amsterdam. that's life with people at the Zolder. it's closeness. real closeness, in a way i've never experienced before. i think that being in a place like that, doing God's work, fighting His fight, draws people closer in a way we can't know or understand here. like soldiers who fight together, a bond is formed. it's almost instant. and it's so real, and warm. i think this is why i've never felt unsafe in Amsterdam. despite the spiritual battle that's raging in and around the city, God's people hold each other close. literally and spiritually. being on the front lines, fighting the "good fight" with people who are more than just "ministry partners" but who are close friends.... there's just no other feeling like it in the world.

yeah.. feeling sentimental and homesick for Amsterdam and its people today. can't wait to get back there.
