After serving in discipleship and training ministries for more than a decade in Argentina, we have answered God’s urgent call to help serve in the nation of Finland. Areas of our ministry include student and youth ministries, partnership with local churches and a teaching ministry.
In August we traveled to Germany to attend a week-long training for those involved in student and university ministries across Europe. It was a joy for us to help represent Finland among the 20+ nations in attendance. For many students the university represents a season in their life with unique challenges and opportunities. Not only is it an exciting time, it can also be a turning point toward faith. We were so blessed by our interaction with the other leaders and students involved in this ministry.
Over the past two years in Finland, we have seen a surge of interest among many to work together and develop a university ministry for Finland. Presently, there are several sites with interested students and church leaders. We’re still trying to discern what our role might be in all this, but God is definitely up to something in the universities of Finland. Please pray with us as we seek how to best support this work and see many students in Finland come to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Could it be a new season for the university campuses of Finland? Let’s believe that it is!
We continue to have regular discipleship meetings in our home and are seeing fruit from this outreach.
