An Evening of Fellowship at Pastor Kristjan Luhamet's Home
Touring the New Construction Site of Tartu Academy of Theology & the Present Facility
Tartu Academy of Theology (TAT) is very much in need of a new facility. TAT Home of Hope is under construction. It will provide a significantly larger space and be home to several Christian ministries. This will provide visibility that is much needed for the Church in Estonia.
The camp verse for today: "Christ died for sins, once for all...to bring you to God." 1 Peter 3:18
We are excited to again welcome new students today as we share how & why Jesus died for us and what it means for our lives.
This is a couple pages from our Student Book. Think & pray about joining an EEMN English Camp in 2019. Our team members come from many walks of life...and, we are working quite well together, helping each other tell the Gospel message to our students.

Camp has begun. These are a few of our students gathering for opening worship and introductions...some new faces...some very familiar faces!
The Tartu team has gathered together in Tartu, all except Mot, who will be joining us tomorrow morning. Adam takes off early in the morning for the States.
Today was our last full day in Kuressaare. John, Kelly, Alice and Linda have flown off to Tallinn and are now on a bus to Tartu. Mot and Adam will travel to Tallinn tomorrow morning and Adam will return to the states Monday. Pam, Bob, & Patti will travel to Tartu by bus in the morning.
We are off to a good start with camp. We have good attendance with older students, lots of teens and children. We are very excited to share with them the story of Jesus. So far 44 have attended and we look forward to tomorrow.
Thank you for your prayers. Please continue praying that God's will be done in all of our students' lives. Pray for us... for good rest and energy and for wisdom.
Pastor Bob & Pastor Rene Reinson, a new friend in Estonia and pastor of three congregations, on their way into the first of three churches Bob & Patti visited this morning.
St. Michael’s Church at Kihelkonna, Estonia, was built in 1270. It’s tower was shortened by the Russians during occupation so that it would not become a target for a nearby base.
The rest of the team worshiped at St. Lawrence in Kuressaare. It was a good day for all and we are excited to begin the English Camp.
PR. BOB & PATTI NORDVALL are the team leaders for the Estonia teams. Bob has been leading teams since 2006. We were married in 2016 and live out on a small ranch. We enjoy traveling around and sharing about missions in East Europe. Bob is on staff with EEMN as Nat'l Field Coordinator. We are excited to lead two teams in Estonia this August, welcoming veterans and new team members!
