Baking for Ministry

Last night, Bethany and I spent a chunk of time baking. We were preparing to spend some time with folks from Encounter Church in Darien, CT and to give them an authentic Austrian experience, we made a chocolate torte and an apple strudel. We have gotten to know everyone down at that church over the last few months, and we are excited to have this time together to talk about what God is doing in Austria and how He is preparing us to minister there.

Here is a quick photo diary of our baking adventure!

Finally dusted with powder sugar and looking crispy and flaky


  1. what did you do for the dough?

  2. We used puff pastry dough. It seems to be the easiest solution this side of the Atlantic... :)
