This year we opened the doors of the Hurlach castle for the 10th time. More than 1000 visitors from the region came to get to know us and our historical building that has been home to YWAM for over 40 years.

The "European Heritage Day" provided the cultural frame and a program including lots of music along with tasty food from different cultures and plenty of attractions for children made this a memorable day.

Planning session for the Marriage Week* 2011

The planning for the Marriage Week 2011 has already been launched in many locations. The campaigns from previous years have shown how important it is to start with the preparations in good time.

We as a “Marriage-Week-Forum**” Landsberg have already begun with the preparations a few weeks ago.
At the moment we are among other things working on reopening the communication channels.

Tonight we met yet in another planning session for the Marriage Week in AWO building in Landsberg and went through the next practical steps in our plan, as there will be a further Marriage Week held in our region in 2011 as well.

Here is the link to the website concerning our Marriage-Week-Forum Landsberg:
>>> http://www.marriage-week-landsberg.de/2.html

[photo]5260693[/photo]

* The campaign called „Marriage Week“ was initiated in Germany by the Marriage Week association Germany which is in charge of the central website www.marriage-week.de . This is an initiative of both people and institutions including the areas of culture, church, politics and economy, the goal of which is to strengthen the position of married couples in society.

** The Marriage-Week-Forum Landsberg is an informal initiative group consisting of people in the area who are interested in coming together concerning the “Marriage Week” in order to share suggestions, exchange ideas and coordinate the activities so that there would be as many marriage supporting initiative groups as possible formed in the region.

--------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------

July 21, 2010

Tonight was the last evening of the Marriage Course, a series of seven romantic evenings with helpful thoughts about improving your marriage.

Every evening started with a dinner. The teachings hat the goal to encourage couples and to deepen their relationship with each other. They took place in our YWAM training centre in Hurlach (from April till July).

The next course will presumably take place in spring 2011.

--------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------

July 17, 2010

Today we as members of YWAM-Hurlach celebrated the 50th anniversary of the founding of the mission organization YWAM.

In the morning there was a jubilee-brunch prepared for those staff members who have been working long time with YWAM - some of them more than 25 years. We both were part of this celebration as we have been working with YWAM since 1980.

In the afternoon many guests came to celebrate with YWAM Hurlach. One of the guest speakers was David Boyd. The celebration took place in the garden behind the Hurlach castle.

Yesterday afternoon we did the second part of our workshop "Right from the Beginning" (Doris, Violeta und Rolf-Dieter).

During the last year Renata Sochor from the Slovak Family Ministry Team (YWAM) has translated a big part of the program "GETTING TO KNOW GOD - Right from the Beginning".
In the workshop she was not only our translator, but she also shared about her own experiences with this program in a "mummys' club" and about her material.
She also did several presentations of the program for the kids and we are very excited to see her do such a great job.

Today we did a "Family Encouragement Afternoon" with many possibilities for the families to have fun and to do activities together.

This picture shows one of the "family times" with a theatre presentation:

"Men's Day" at YWAM Hainichen: "Trust really is the most important thing!"

As one participant put it afterwards: "The activities on the ropes course were – as expected – fantastic. Our trainers from the Trust Team were excellent. And when you're doing such risky stuff on the high elements, trust really is the most important thing!"

That's also a view shared by the Team, who are responsible for the guests' safety. Which was why the same issue kept cropping up during the activities themselves and afterwards in the debriefing sessions: "Can I rely on you?"

Most of the Men's Day participants were the men from the Family Ministry School (FMS), who, with the 8th week of their course now behind them, are well past the halfway stage of the three-month classroom phase. And there was plenty of reason for them to join in: one of the goals of the FMS is that the FMS students should get to know as many different tried-and-tested approaches, working methods and programs as possible.

--------------------------------------------------- - --------------------------------------------------- - -------------------------------------------------

May 9, 2009

Today we changed our positions from students to teaches: We gave a workshop about the Christian program for "introducing babies and toddlers to daily life with God" which was attended by 30 participants ...

--------------------------------------------------- - --------------------------------------------------- - -------------------------------------------------

April 6, 2009

A week ago we have moved to Saxony - but we will live here only 3 months.

The reason is:
We take part in a Family Ministry School * (FMS) organized by the YWAM base in Hainichen (Saxony).
It is a great school!





If you want to find out more about this course, here is a link to the Family Ministry School.
