    I am from India and I came here for a short visit of 3 months with my wife and baby on a business trip. I came here 2 weeks back. I am really looking for an english service church in maastricht. I would like to visit you this coming sunday if possible. I got the directions to your church from google maps and also from your site. I think I can reach there by walk. Looking forward to participate in the service and worship the Living God.
