September 2022 Prayer RequestsSeptember 7, 2022
Prayers for camp ministries and celebrations for conference are in this month’s email…
It is beautiful summer in Estonia, and many people are away on vacation, enjoying sunny days as much as possible. Please pray that this remaining summer month would be a refreshing time for pastors and all the lay leaders.
Please pray for our Summer Conference that it would be a spiritually refreshing and encouraging time.
Please pray for continued work with the Ukrainian refugees.
Thank you so much for keeping us in your prayers, and may the Lord bless you!
Please pray for the faculty, staff, and students that they may get the rest they need over break.
Pray for the seven students who have recently graduated from seminary. That they may have guidance on where God is calling them to use their learning.
Pray that God will lead prospective students to apply to the seminary.
The Summer Conference is about to begin. We are planning a program for both teenagers and youth again. Let’s pray for teenagers and also for youth who are serving them.
But we are very grateful to God for the specially blessed teen camp. It was a place where God served and raised both teenagers and the team. We experienced a very special presence of the Holy Spirit, of which young people continue to tell their parents and friends a lot.
Let’s continue to pray for all the young and sown seeds. We have had a very, very blessed summer, and we long for this blessing to come to fruition and the Kingdom of God to be expanded mightily.
I thank God for good vacation time in July, for meeting friends, and especially for being able to spend some time with all our children as they visited us.
My prayers these days are with our new missionaries who have just traveled to Prague in the Czech Republic, where they start their new assignment. The time of transitioning your life from one continent to another is always challenging. Please pray for this family as they begin a new phase in their life and ministry.
Also, I appreciate prayers as we, with Meeli, have both been invited to serve the UMC in Poland in the middle of August. The Polish Methodists have their annual largest gathering new Warsaw, and we are both speakers there. We need God’s guidance and wisdom to minister as they need it. As it is a long drive for us, we also need travel mercies!
Thank you for this prayer fellowship!

Dear praying friends!
Praise God for a wonderful time in Latvia with Aldersgate. Holy Spirit was powerfully working in people´s lives and we ourselves got encouraged and lifted up.
In July, Thea had 2 camps with her children’s home children. In Võru Church was happening summer food project for children whose parents get social help from the Võru city government. It is now 4th year. This year there are especially very young moms with their little children. On Tuesday will be the final time when our city-meer is making pancakes in the churchyard!
Praise God, there was also a Christian Bicycle trip and a very special teenage camp, where our youngest son took part. Holy Spirit was working there as well.
Please pray for our summer conference, starting on Thursday – the theme is Holy Spirit, that there will be a great outpouring of Holy Spirit!
Several Ukrainians have started to attend our church. Some of them are seekers, but one family are strong Christians from Tsernihiv. We talked today with them about starting Ukrainian Sunday school for children in September. Please pray for that. Also, we do not have an Estonian-Russian translator, pray that this need will be met.

Pray that the new season will bring more people back to church.
Pray for wisdom to make decisions and choose the right things.
First, I am very thankful for all your prayers! Thank God for making us connected by this powerful communication.
Thank God for the nice VBS in Agape church in Pärnu. There were 3 days full of different activities for children and volunteers. Thank God we got a team doing good ministry together. Most importantly, we had almost 1/3 of children in the VBS who made very first contact with Christians. Let´s continue to pray for children and their families.
Thank God I had very unique opportunity to go to preach in jail in Tartu. It took me a long time until I gave my word to go. It was a situation out of my comfort zone. I am very happy I made it; everything worked out well.
Please pray for Agape church´s 101 anniversary at the end of August. Please pray for fresh contacts for those who have been away for some reason. Please pray also for new contacts to those we do not know yet. Let our Lord make it all work out well, and people will feel His blessings during the celebrations.
