I enjoyed seeing this phrase posted on a billboard outside the city where we have been ministering weekly over the past several months. I'm not sure whether it struck me more as an imperative or indicative statement. I like to think of it as both. We want God to "Open Lahti". Our hope is that His Word would run swiftly through this city, touching and impacting the lives of the precious souls residing within its borders. Just in the past few months we have seen that it is "Open Lahti". There has been many long conversations with people who seem hungry to hear more of this message of radical Grace and the Finished Work of Christ.
We are now in the process of looking for a place to have services. We already have a time and place set for our first annual Lahti Christmas concert. Let's pray that it will continue to be an "Open Lahti".
