Highlights from Malta

Over New Year's this year, we had the privilege of travelling to Malta for WorldVenture's Hope Malta Conference for all of the workers in Europe and the Middle East. It was an incredibly encouraging 5 days for us. They had a team come in from Texas to plan a great program for the kids and while they were having fun, we had the chance to worship, listen to great teachings from Mark Young (President of Denver Seminary and former WorldVenture missionary), attend helpful and practical workshops and spend time with other missionaries. We also heard updates from the home office on policies, training and health care, had important in-person meetings, and reconnected with friends with whom we'd attended training years ago. A highlight was a talent show and party on New Year's eve, where I (Bethany) performed the "Who's on First" skit with our teammate and friend, Beth, and performed a song with Nate. We came away from the week exhausted but also rejuvenated and encouraged.

Here are a few photo highlights from our trip:

We had a free day and went to the island of Gozo. We got to go climbing there with some others

Worship in English - a huge blessing!

  1. Bethany, I appreciated hearing more about your time in Malta, and as it is such a historic island, and Gozo. And hearing what God is doing in ministry in Austria from your emails. :) God bless you all! Praying for you all and the Kosse family, Sue Laeupple (Discovery Church, St. Cloud, MN)
