So the outreach is sort of over. But we are still in Greece. We are going to have some days were we talk and process what we have even doing. Feels strange.
This weeks in Thessaloniki have been amazing. We have been talking to a lot of people and we have shared the gospel.
We lived together with a team from the states. They were incredible people and I miss them already. We did ministry together and had a lot of fun. We also met an other YWAM team from Germany. They just started Their outreach. We had the opportunity to encourage them and give them a lot of advise about Greek youth.
It is going to be weird to come home after two month in Greece. You know the culture and a little bit of the language. Only a little haha.
But I'm also looking forward to come home to my family and friends.
Big hug. Thank you for following my trip
Hej mormor. Saknar dig och morfar. Vi har det bra i Grekland. Kom precis tillbaka dit efter två veckor i Turkiet. Vi har arbetat med missionärer där och bett mycket. Jag får berätta mer när jag kommer hem.
Hey everyone. After two weeks in turkey I have now arrived in Thessaloniki. We have been working with missionaries and done a lot of prayer walking. We have got some good friends and ate some pretty good food.
Here in Thessaloniki is the sun shining and I have no idè what we are going to do. That will be a surprise.
Big hug from Greece.
This Saturday I was with two friends out on sightseeing. We saw everything you need to see in Athens.
This has also been the last week at the Samarian center. That's sad. But I know that we can come back and visit whenever we want to. God has done so many great things thru this time. He have led us in what to say and how to react in the culture. He has given us a lot of friends and it is going to be hard to leave them. Today is the last day so there will be a lot of tears. And warm hugs.
This has been a great experience. God has really showed me that all people are individuals and everyone are in need of a family. But everyone can not the chance to have a family because if war and the need to leave there country. A lot of people can't go to school and a lot of them want to. They have a hard time coming in to other counties and get an education.
Next week us about evangelism. We are going to work together with a church near the harbor in Athens. You will get more information later about that.
I miss you guys at home

To be in Greece and to go and by food is really funny and crowded. We went to the meat market and everyone were shouting after you and they wanted you to by from them of course. So funny.
Today Dakota and I are doing some fun stuff for the team...
You will know later what we did.
Greece is getting warmer every day. I have already burn my neck and been sick by the sun. What else do you need?? ;)
The work we are doing is giving food and carpeting and English class. We hang out with the people that comes here and we play games and football. It's fun to get to know a new culture and new people.
Meet the meat market
Baking as a ministry
During three weeks we are able to give refuges from mostly Afghanistan and some other country's food and teach them English. First time was yesterday and that was hard. I needed to force my self to not cry.
There were around more than a hundred people coming and they all got a small portion of food and from starting to serve the food until finish cleaning took around two hours. Everything went super fast. They were really hungry.
After finish cleaning there were some food left that we could eat. We were around twenty people and we could all eat until we were couldn't eat more. It just hit me how much more food I got than all the kids with there family's got.
I think it is hard to think about how lucky we all are that can eat food every day and not feel hungry. We have sometimes more than we need.
Today we are going to give food again and now I'm kind of thinking about what we actually are doing. That we are making a huge change with giving out food. And now I am thinking about how lucky I am to be here.
Happy birthday my little brother who's turning six today
Today we have been guided thru Athens and we saw so many things and buildings. It is beautiful but also spiritual. Every building is build for a specific god or goddess. So sad that the devil has power over beautiful buildings. We are now home in our small and lovely apartment and are soon having dinner of things we bought on the market. We also bought strawberry that where amazingly sweet and good. Tonight we are going to be part if a meeting and take care of the worship.
Love an blessings
We are in Bari Italy and it is sunny, warm and amazing. We went from Munich in the night and woke up in Venice. Then we went thru Italy by train and the country is so beautiful. I'm so going back here.
Today we are leaving at eight with a boat to Greece and before that we will do some thing good for the city. We are going to pick up trash from the street and write messengers on bananas and give to people. So exited to see what the people say.
Today was a long day. We traveled from Gothenburg to hamburg to Munich and are going to catch the night train to Venice in one hour. We have seen so much of Germany's culture and it is amazing to backpack thru Europe.
