Gree­tings from the child­ren in Ke­nya!

Vieraskieliset / In-english5.12.2019 15.17

The last few ki­lo­me­ters of the ride to the lo­ca­ti­on of the ser­vi­ces are bum­py. The child­ren in the yard no­ti­ce us and run to greet us. The ol­der child­ren can speak Eng­lish well. An in­terp­re­ter helps us vi­sit with the rest – eve­ry­o­ne is ab­le to greet and say their name wit­hout an in­terp­re­ter.

The Holy Spi­rit

“For where two or three are gat­he­red in my name, there am I among them.” Trus­ting in this pro­mi­se, we of­ten gat­her to lis­ten to the word of God and its exp­la­na­ti­ons. The pro­mi­se is great, but how is it pos­sib­le?

Christ as the Re­dee­mer

God cre­a­ted the world and all was well. The si­tu­a­ti­on chan­ged when the ene­my of souls temp­ted Eve in to ta­king fruit from the tree of good and evil. The wo­man did not have the strength to re­sist the temp­ta­ti­on. Ins­te­ad she took the fruit and ate it. Then she gave it to her hus­band and he ate it al­so.

God is al­migh­ty. As the Al­migh­ty, God is the foun­da­ti­on of eve­ryt­hing. He is pre­sent eve­ryw­he­re, sees all, knows all, is right-min­ded and per­fect­ly good.

Blog: Could we do so­met­hing to­get­her?

Vieraskieliset / In-english3.12.2019 6.32

We all know how im­por­tant it is to spend time to­get­her. Coup­les are en­cou­ra­ged to have some pri­va­te time for them­sel­ves, and that is a good thing. Short bre­aks from the dai­ly rou­ti­ne are ref­res­hing. Many pe­op­le seem to take such mini-bre­aks. I so­me­ti­mes think eve­ry­bo­dy el­se does it, ex­cept we don’t. But I do dis­cuss this to­pic with my wife qui­te re­gu­lar­ly.

I re­mem­ber my first mis­si­on trip to Af­ri­ca a few ye­ars ago. I re­mem­ber our ar­ri­val in a home in the small vil­la­ge where the ser­vi­ces were held. There was a tab­le co­ve­red with a white tab­lec­loth in the shade of a tree and some chairs around it. Some ser­vi­ce gu­ests had al­re­a­dy ar­ri­ved, and they cheer­ful­ly gree­ted the new­co­mers.

There is a lot of phy­si­cal, men­tal and spi­ri­tu­al pain in the world. I saw it very conc­re­te­ly du­ring my first fo­reign mis­si­on trip. The whole spect­rum of hu­man suf­fe­ring lay open be­fo­re my ey­es. Pe­op­le ap­p­ro­ac­hed me and beg­ged for help.

Blog: Night­ti­me thoughts

Vieraskieliset / In-english19.11.2019 6.25

When I was yo­ung, I would have slept even if the world had col­lap­sed around me. Ÿuan Mei, a Chi­ne­se poet who li­ved in the 18th cen­tu­ry, wrote: ”...but then I re­mem­ber my yo­uth, I re­mem­ber my sno­ring was loud like thun­der and I slept my mor­nings like struck by a light­ning.” But age chan­ges things. When you feel stres­sed, you ea­si­ly wake up in the ear­ly hours and be­gin to turn over in yo­ur mind all kinds of troub­ling thoughts.

Blog: Should we talk about faith?

Vieraskieliset / In-english14.11.2019 6.54

This time I de­ci­ded to go straight to the point and write about what is re­al­ly the most im­por­tant mat­ter to me. I will write about faith. And this time I will not be ab­le to give ra­ti­o­nal ar­gu­ments to back up my views and opi­ni­ons. Pon­de­ring and re­a­so­ning are some of my fa­vo­ri­te pas­ti­mes, but I will put them asi­de for now. They do not be­long here.
