We ask for prayers in January for health and well-being as well as guidance for 2022 and beyond.
Dear Friends of Estonia!
I would like to wish you a happy and blessed 2022! In Acts chapter 13:52 it says: “And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.” We don’t know what this year will bring, but I pray that God would fill us with joy and the Holy Spirit. That is all we need to go through all circumstances of life. May God bless you and your loved ones this new year!
Also, thank you so much for your prayers! We had a wonderful Christmas celebration in Estonia. We had to follow some COVID-19 restrictions, but still, we were able to have all of our Christmas events and for that, we are very thankful to God.
This month please pray for all of our 25 congregations as they make plans for this upcoming year. Our prayer is that our churches would become stronger, would be growing and reaching people for Christ.
Thank you for your prayers!
Praise God that the school successfully completed 2021 and was able to do our work despite all the distractions related to Covid! We also are thankful to God and our supporters that all our budgetary needs were met.
Pray for our workers, many of who are experiencing burnout.
Pray for the healing of the sick and the continued endurance of the medical workers and leaders as Covid is getting high in Estonia as it is in most of the world.
Praise God that the seminary had their meetings with the accreditation committee in November expect a preliminary report from the committee on their findings in the near future. Pray that their report may be positive and allow us to go about our mission.
Pray that the faculty, staff, and students are able to return rested to the seminary later this month after Christmas break.
Pray for Simon, a seminary alumnus, and his two young children. Simon’s wife un-expectantly passed away in December. Pray for God to give them comfort and guidance.
We are very grateful to God for an amazing Winter camp. It was a camp of struggles and victories, difficulties and miracles. We experienced God’s special grace, presence, and love. Let’s continue to pray for the young, the devil is very angry.
I have a great desire to start studying the Bible with young people. I need God’s strategic solution. We need a plan to reach out! May God touch our hearts so deeply, that we can’t go on anymore as usual. That we live together with God and do what needs to be done, not what we want to do.
I am so thankful for having some vacation time to rest in December. Also, I am thankful for Christmas with our children and grandchildren – even as not everyone could come to Estonia and visit us during Christmas, some of them did and we had a grand time together.
For January, I don’t see many things happening, but we plan my trip to Tennessee at the end of January and I ask you to support all the logistics with prayers, as well as all the different meetings and speaking engagements during that time.
Happy and blessed New Year!
We pray for the current political situation for all Baltics and Ukraine and meeting with Russia and NATO, that peace will remain in this area.
Also for the very big rise of costs in electricity, gas, and food.
For youth ministry in Võru. There is a great fight for the souls of children and youth.

Pray for our youth camp, it takes place from 30 of Dec to 2 of Jan. Pray for security in this time and especially for the spiritual growth of all participants! Pray that all leaders and all teens will have good relations.
Pray for people who are in trouble, both mentally and economically. Pray that they will go to God for solutions!
Happy New Year everyone! Thank you very much for the prayers.
On January 8, we are planning a holiday for children with special needs, support us in prayer so that we can organize everything efficiently and hope for the manifestation of God’s love in the lives of these children.
On January 15, we are planning a meeting of all the ministers of the Tallinn Methodist Church of the Russian Community, we wish to talk about the upcoming season and pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Happy New Year!

I thank the Lord for so many of you praying for me and for Agape church in Pärnu. It is a very important and big support for me. It is a great blessing from God, I am so thankful for it.
I am thankful for open churches in the pandemic situations in Estonia. It´s been a hard time for pastors and leaders in the churches. Thankfully things have been going well and churches are open.
I am thankful for some new beginnings in Agape church. There are some new groups that started in the last couple of months. Thank the Lord for these beginnings. These things also need prayers for the future. I hope there will be more groups in the congregation and people can communicate with each other on personal levels more often.
Please pray for Christians in the churches can share the real meaning of coming Christmas. It also means everyone could find out something to leave behind and let it go for giving their time for Jesus Christ.
Praise God for life and everything I have.
I got engaged at the end of November. I came through a car accident at the beginning of this year- praise God I am fine and the car got just a few scratches.
We have started the united prayer meetings together with other denominations in nearby towns. We have a vision of an evangelism outreach to happen in Paide this year, but first, we want to find unity between the different churches, get to know each other, and start to pray for the awaking of our cities, towns, and countrysides.
Pray for unity and awaking! Pray for the preparation of my wedding.
