Dude, I’m in Holland

I’m in Der Haag, a city not far from Amsterdam, for some mission-geek meetings with DAWN Europe. I was here last year, to do a training for young Assembly of God church planters (you can read what i taught and about the mosiac we created) and i am even staying in the same place – a Catholic monastery, that is history rich but Wifi impoverished, alas, it doesn”t even have a phone connection for us bloggers. So if I blip off the planet in the next 3 days, you will know why.
Who is here of interest in my blog world? Reinhold , Kerstin ( Berlin Rocks), and Marc Van Der Woude ( Marcs Messages). Roland VDM (DutchTraveller) will be turning up on Wednesday. I also hope to see Rogier Bos, who started Next-Wave.org and moved back here to Der Haag.

The first time i came to Amsterdam, I took my family to the Anne Frank house – really amazing museum that is inside the actual house where Anne lived. Her scribblings are still on the wall. It is fascinating to read the horrors of Nazi occupation through her eyes – she is young and innocent – and has nothing to gain through her journal so it is more believable and real. In a way, Anne Frank was a pre-blogger.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • i like the idea of anne being a pre-blogger. i pray that blogging keeps atrocities like the holocaust from happening again because the horrors would be exposed long before they got to that stage. i pray…
