We have come to the end of camp in Kuressaare. The week was filled with sharing Jesus, our stories, and the story of Joseph. Challenges were faced with a few who are not quite sure they believe in God, but they were open to talking about it, and we were very encouraged. One teen came as an atheist but by the end of the week was willing to think about it.
It is hard here for people to trust one another because of the years under Soviet occupation and some of our greatest joy comes from listening to people's stories and encouraging them in their walk with God to reach out to one another. To hear a classroom erupt in discussion is music to the ears!
We love to pray for people and saw so many tears that just touched our hearts. Thanks be to God. Thursday we gave gifts to the students, bars of homemade soap brought from Iowa by Chris and made by a member of his church and beautiful hand-knitted wash cloths from Washington made by Pam and members of her church. Our students were so grateful. Thank you!
Al is traveling home to Colorado and Tartu team members are on the ground in Estonia. Camp at St. Paul's Church begins Monday. We are so excited to see what God will do there.
Please join us in these prayers for:
