Hello world!

chrisdeann.jpg Welcome to the first post of Chris and DeAnn Hertzog.  We are new to this whole blogging thing so please have patience with us as we work out the design, content, etc of our blog. 

We chose “Walking the Line” as the name of our blog not only because all 5 of us are Johnny Cash fans, but also because it describes our life.  Every day we walk the line between traditional and contemporary, American and European, European and Middle Eastern, European and African,  European and Asian, religious and secular, pastor and footballer.

    What a great idea. I look forward to reading more about Cyprus and your unique ministry opportunities. As you are walking the line everyday, remember you are being supported in prayer. Keep going and don’t look back. Becky

    I’ve never done this “blogging stuff” so this is a first! We’ll keep lifting you up in prayer as you “walk the line” and look forward to hearing all the exciting opportunities the Lord brings you.

    I am so glad to have a place to come and read what is going on with you and your family. I look forward to reading what is going on in your lives. Much love from my boys and me.

    Hello, Hertzogs!

    Been thinking a lot about you and wondering how your adjustment is going. Loved the pictures you sent in your email! So glad we got “re-acquainted” right before you left–now we feel like a part of your team. Keep sending pictures and prayer requests!

    Praying for you faithfully,
    Leah (and family)

    Greeting & Salutations C&D, what a fabulous way to keep in touch! Thanks for the updates. I see you’re walking the line between ‘Tekkie & Non-Tekkie’, too. Looks like fun. You’ve got your hands full and your work cut out for you. God has provided you some exciting work and opportunities. We’ll continue to pray for your focus and strength.

    Take care,
    Jeff & Roya Sterner, & Fam.

    We live on the “Tekkie, Non-Tekkie” line…we are just happy to have internet at this point!

    Thanks for the prayer.

    Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus, The Christ,

    We are so excited to discuss more about Cyprus and your ministry opportunities. I have never really done a “blog” before so I guess we will learn it all together.

    As I was reading in John 17:18-19 it says’, “As You sent Me into the world; I also have sent them into the world. For their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth”.

    Jesus says He was sent from God to us so we could return to God as his beloved children (adoption). He now sends His disciples (this includes you & I) into the world to make a difference in the lives of those we meet.

    Jesus gives Himself totally and completely to the Father so that our future, our lives and mission should belong to the Father as well. Our “job assignment” must be God-lead, God-motivated, and God-willed. Since we know that is true then we are His and our mission is His. Because all who follow Jesus, all who call Him Lord, belong to God! We are so grateful that you and DeAnn are truly fulfilling His destiny for you and your household.

    We love you, and pray for His divine protection and support continually.

    Art, Romajean & family

    Thank you Art, Romajean and family. We thank you for all your prayers. Hope you all are doing well in Bakersfield and you have a blessed Easter.
