"I want to show something of God's great love"
Dominik de Bruijne works as a shortterm missionary in the Patchwork Center in Schwerin, a mission project of ECM Netherlands. Dominik came to Schwerin in 2021 to do an internship as part of his theology studies. After his graduation he decided to stay in Schwerin till the summer of 2022 to discover if and how he can play a longterm role in mission in Europe.
The Patchwork Center is a community centre in the 'Dreesch', a deprived area in the East German city of Schwerin. ECM started working here in 2009. It is an area where unemployment, poverty and social problems are troubling many people. Together with people from the Dreesch a team of missionaries converted a former postal office into a community centre with a café, workshops and a 'boutique' for the sale of second-hand clothes. The ECM team sees many opportunities for this project to bring positive and lasting change in their local area and to bring people closer to the Gospel.
