A Year For God
by Ole Eicker
My name is Ole Eicker, I am 19 years old and I grew up in the northern part of Germany. I have come to Austin to join the HELP for all Nations team as a volunteer for the next ten months. I just got here, about a week ago, but I am certain that this will be an incredible year!
I am staying on the LIFEHOUSE property and I am sharing an appartment with another young man. We share meals, work and live together.
Despite the hard work, I still have a lot of spare time that I can spend alone with God.
I believe that this is not only a time when I can help support this ministry, but also a time that will be very important for the rest of my life. Here I can learn how to live 100% for God.
I had actually never intended to come to America for such a long time, but the Lord has led me here and now I am glad that I came. Austin itself has so many things to see and to explore. Everything is different, the people, nature, supermarkets, wildlife and especially the weather.
It's nice to get to know a completely different culture. For me, everything is still new and challenging. For example, the language is still a challenge.
At first I was a little nervous about the outreaches with the "Cream and Sugar" trailer. I have never worked with homeless people before. But this is exactly what Jesus did. He did not necessarily go to the rich and wealthy. He went to the poor, the needy and the sick.
I am impressed to see how the staff members here put their trust in God. This is very inspiring. I'm also learning to trust in God, no matter what situation I find myself in.
I am looking forward to the next months and I know that a lot of new friends, adventures, experiences and also challenges are waiting for me. The Lord will be with me in all of this. I am convinced that it is no coincidence that I am here. God wants to use me and change me, so that I can get to know him better.
