We have arrived on location in Tallinn, Estonia! We have spent the past couple of days getting through the rigors of jet lag as well as beginning the process of reacquainting ourselves with the city.
Our journey to Tallinn allowed for a multi-hour layover in Oslo, Norway. We took advantage of this to go into the city and see some of the sights. This was enhanced by being able to meet up with Rachel Zehm, a former team member from our work in Latvia who is currently serving in the city of Oslo.
As we flew into Norway, it was breathtaking to see the beauty of this country below us. Snow-covered mountains gave way to lush, green, rolling hills and farmland, with innumerable lakes scattered throughout. Oslo was no less beautiful, especially as we made our way to the main harbor area of the city.
Oslo and Norway are experiencing an awakening of revival! Rachel shared with us some wondrous accounts of how God is miraculously opening doors of opportunity to reach souls who are hungry for something more in their life. While there is much natural beauty in this land, it certainly does not compare to the beauty of people who have a true relationship with Christ! That is the heartbeat of every missionary…regardless of which one of the 200+ countries of this sphere called Earth that we might occupy at any given time: to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them.
