We wrote the last newsletter when we were in Bergen at the Nations Callings missions conference, right before we left for Belgium. It was a bit of a whirlwind, but so very worth it! We felt like just being with old friends, other Nations Calling missionaries, telling stories, and getting prayer with people from Jesus Fellowship was so refreshing for us.
After we got back from traveling, we had a couple fun weekends with visits of Per-Øystein, then Fredrik Skoglund. Since then we have been doing normal life in Mo, which consists of evangelistic admin for Eimund, and teaching and studying for Cassie. We are in Mo for Easter break, and feel that it is so good to just have time to relax and be at home! Here are some stories from the previous month, hope you enjoy them!
Marie, Cassie and I went to Liege, Belgium February 22-25th for a short mission trip. Cassie and I have been in Belgium twice before, and we have really gotten a heart for this nation!
This time didn’t we really know what to expect since we had never been to that particular city and church before.
At our first meeting on Friday evening over 14 youth responded to the altar call, we also saw a great hunger in the people in the church when we invited up for prayer.
On Saturday we had street evangelism with the young adults in the area around the church. We saw several healings and salvations when we approached people, let me tell you about one specific testimony.
When we started walking around I observed a man that I felt God highlighted. I shared some words of knowledge that were incorrect, and we could see that he was very reserved. I eventually got to share the gospel with him and told about how lost we are on our own because of the sin that separates us from God. And then I shared about Jesus and the cross, that he paid the price for all of our sins so that we could receive forgiveness and a relationship with God through Jesus.
We could see the transformation in his eyes after the gospel was shared. So then I challenged him to surrender his life to Jesus and to receive his forgiveness, and to me and my interpreters surprise he said yes!
This is only one of many salvations that happened in Liege, people were so open and hungry for the simple gospel!
Each month we are going to a small town beside the coast called Nesna, there we are working with a local church to have meetings for youth that attend a local Christian High School.
This month we had a wonderful time in this beautiful town where we got to visit the school and hang out with some of the youth. We also had a beautiful time of prayer and worship outside at the dock in town where we felt a great shift in the spiritual atmosphere while praying.
In the evening we had a great meeting with some of the hungry youth, where we got to minister and sow into them.
