The entire EEMN Estonia Team is all together in Tallinn! Pr. Bob & Patti and Pr. David & Angela arrived on Friday, while Mot & Pam, Andrew, Patrick, and Anna arrived on Sunday afternoon. Pr. Dennis and Pr. Kathy, and Pr. David Michael (DMC) arrived on Monday afternoon. The great news is that everyone's baggage arrived, too!
Pr. Bob and Patti began their adult Soul Guards education seminar (similar in concept to Stephen Ministry), in Nomme-Rahu, on Monday afternoon.
After the remaning three team members arrived, we were invited take a private and exclusive tour of the Estonia Parliament Building. Long-time friend of EEMN, Eva-Liisa now works at the parliament building and was able to arrange for our entry and then guided us on the fascinating tour of the parliament building. This was the site of the landmark legislation that declared Estonia's succession for the former Soviet Union and moved this incredible country into an entirely new era of independence and prosperity.
The team also enjoyed being able to sample some of the local cuisine and Andrew tried a cappuccino for the very first time (pinky raised and all!). His verdict? "Tastes like coffee." :-)
We are bonding well as a team and look forward to finish preparing for the camps that lay ahead, as well as our transition to the Saaremma Island village of Kuressaare, on Tuesday! Thank you for your continued prayers. Specifically, we desire prayer for the team jet-lag to subside soon and that the Lord would prepare hearts and minds to receive the grace, love, and mercy of the Gospel in Jesus Christ. Amen!
Pr. David & Angela Breidenbach are the Executive Director and Director of Development & Operations for East European Missions Network (EEMN).
