Into the schools part two

So last week Jouni, our youth leader, and I got to go to a public school and share our faith with two groups of 15-16 year-olds. It was amazing to see some of them very interested in what we were saying.
I had a chance to give my testimony and my personal view of what the Bible means to me.
The door continues to be open and we plan to go back to that school and hopefully more as well next semester. Keep this important vision in prayer as we look to let every Finnish student know what great Love the Father has towards them.

Into the schools

So for the past 9 months or so, we have been really praying for God to open doors to go into schools here in Finland where we could share the gospel to students. We approached some doors only to find them shut. It didn't seem to be a real possibility by sight, but we kept on believing that God would make a way for us to realize this vision.
This morning I received a call from a Religion teacher at a public middle school in Espoo. He told me that he had met Pastor Juha at some event and heard that I was planning on sharing my faith in the schools here. He has invited me to come this Monday morning to teach a 90 minute lesson on the topic of "What the Bible means to Christians in their lives." Praise God!
Please keep this great endeavor in your prayers this weekend.

The march

Here are some photos from the Jesus March here in Helsinki. This is an annual interdenominational march that Finnish Christians in Helsinki do on the first of May. There was about fifty, or so, from our church in attendance, along with thousands of other Believers.
