Good to see you here! Just want to tell shortly from to day. I went to the youthprison to day, and I am so thankful to God that I can serve Him there. Sometimes it can be a challenge when it comes to language, because there are not so many prisoners who can help me to interpret. Normally I get some help from on of the guys and from the prisonpriest. But to day the priest was not there and I didn't find the one who usually helps me. So I decided to talk with some of the russian-speaking prisoners. And I met one guy that I've never seen before and he spoke very good english, so he helped me the rest of the day with interpreting.

I went with him to one of the cells together with about 5-6 people. We had a wonderful time together talking. Two of those prisoners were so hungry for God and I we sat together for many hours talking about God. They had many questions and by the help of the Holy Spirit I was able to answer and guide them in the word of God. One of those two guys are released from prison next week! But the best part was that I could pray with him to salvation to day. In five days he is out of prison, and then he can start a new life with Jesus as his Lord and Savior! I gave him my phone number, and so did he. We will for sure keep in touch (even though he speaks russian). But he would love to come to our church in Tartu! Glory be to God forevermore!!

What a God we serve! A God who loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. It is the greatest miracle on earth to see a person who was lost, but now is found. A person who was bound in slavery of sin, but now is released and sat free by the blood of Jesus Christ!

"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:17

My dear friends, let us tell the world about Jesus! The Gospel is too good news to be kept quiet.
