BLOG & COFFEE
news, thoughts on life and theology
One of the encouraging thing, when you are a missionary in a foreign country, is visits from friends – or when people back home are writing you, saying they are praying for you. This is one of the reasons why we enjoy working with Nations Calling. They prioritise visiting the workers, not only to hear how things are going, but also to follow up on a more personal level.
On the picture to the left Svein, Fredrik and me are having coffee in the old town of Lublin. On the picture to the right Fredrik is ministering to the poor and homeless during Street Church’ Friday meeting.
In the beginning of this summer we had Fredrik Skoglund visit us again and we had a great time, both ministering and connecting.
The first part of this summer was a very busy time for us. As an ending to the Bible school we had a conference, we had started up the Encounter meetings again, weekly gatherings with the International church, picking up and delivering food for Street Church and working on building the Polish church we started last year.
But it is a blessing to be able to use time and focus on building the Kingdom of God and we are thankful to be able to serve the King.
TRIP TO WIEN
One of the ladies attending the Bible school is a Polish lady living in Wien. Every third weekend she have been driving from Wien to Poland to attend the teaching and it’s been very inspiring to to see her commitment.
We've just got back after another incredible trip to Juba, South Sudan with a small team consisting of Ronald Gabrielsen (Norway/Poland), Einar Mikkelsen (Denmark), Eimund and Cassie Skjæret (Norway/USA). We started the trip travelling from three different countries, met in Paris, then travelled together to Nairobi.
