Alliance International Workers serving with C&MA

Ralph and Ruth Shareski are serving in Heidelberg, Germany. We believe God has given us a clear vision for this new work: out of an atmosphere of worship and prayer to believe that God will raise up a radical apostolic prophetic company of followers of Jesus who will multiply themselves and see the launching of many communities of faith in Heidelberg and beyond. God has been granting us much favour here in Heidelberg. Our three main "upfront" ministries have been not only growing but also becoming more fruitful. 1. COMMUNITY:  our house group has grown to 20 and we have just multiplied to two groups. Levels of sharing and ministry to each other are deepening. 2. EQUIP: our Friday discipleship training time, is averaging 15-20 and people leave the time together saying "I am really getting equipped". 3. ENCOUNTER: our monthly evangelistic service is making a great impact. As many as 70 come with often 20-30 others coming in for 5-15 minutes as the big old Lutheran church we meet in is right on a pedestrian zone. Praise God for His working. Thank you for your support and prayers.
