A couple weeks ago we had an awesome Youth Meeting in our church here in Helsinki. It was so encouraging to see so many, maybe 30, teenage Finns crammed together in our fireplace room, worshiping God together and listening to His Word. I felt as if we were in the upper room, in the presence of the Savior Himself. We spoke on the Gospel of Jesus Christ; a simple but profound message. Many times we can forget how powerful the Gospel is if we aren't faced with it's reality in revelation. We were 100% lost, totally filled with our own sin... that is, until He came. He came and lived a perfect life in order to be our kinsman redeemer, satisfying the justice of God and fulfilling the mission of the Father's love towards His creation. Incredible.
My prayer is that this message would sound throughout this country through the mouths and lives of these young people.

Just a few days ago, my mother returned to the States after being here with us in Helsinki for almost a week's time. She came with Jenny Perry, an awesome woman of God from our church in Lee, MA, and they ministered in the Women's Seminar that our church hosted. It was so great to see them invest in the ladies' lives here in Helsinki and I believe their visit really left a lasting impression on everyone present. My mother has always played a huge role in my walk with the Lord. Her prayers were many and their power has been manifested in my life and many others. We await your return Ma!
