We are inviting you to the Bringing HOPE TO ESTONIA Campaign

“Now FAITH is the assurance of things HOPED for, the conviction of things not seen.”  Hebrews 11:1

Home of Hope is a leap of FAITH birthed by the call of God. It brings HOPE, not often seen, for preparing a new generation of witnesses for Jesus Christ in Estonia. Three, now four generations of the Haamer family, people of FAITH, have acted and continue to act with others to bring the HOPE we have in our Lord and Savior to a land where neither FAITH nor HOPE is visible to many.  This vision for preparing a new generation of witnesses has come at a cost; Home of Hope was made possible through daring trust in God. We trust God’s provision for the debt of approximately $1.5 million. Leaders of Home of Hope acted and believe God has raised up brothers and sisters in Christ to stand with them in offering sacrificial gifts.

Charity Lutheran Church of Bismarck, ND, through special gifts has recently given $67,500. Additionally, two families made sacrificial gifts totaling $46,000 bringing the total initial giving to $113,500.

 

We invite you to Sacrificial Giving to Erase Much of the Home of Hope Debt. Your sacrificial gift will have an immediate and lasting impact on not only a critical, growing ministry, but an entire nation!

 

All funds raised by sacrificial giving will go to the Home of Hope Challenge Fund. Our goal is to raise $750,000 by June 30th, 2021.

 

Your example will encourage other believers to contribute to the Home of Hope Challenge Fund. A Leadership Team of 30 people in the US will be loyally working to multiply your gift, encouraging people to match your donation in whatever way they can. You are welcome to join this team.

 

Your gift has an even greater multiplying effect as described below.

YOUR GIFT WILL HAVE MULTIPLYING EFFECT

FELLOW DONOR

Your example will encourage other believers to contribute to the Home of Hope Challenge Fund. A Leadership Team of 30 people in the US will be loyally working to multiply your gift, encouraging people to match your donation in whatever way they can.

 

CHURCH MISSION WORK

Every gift in repayment of the loan provides revenue to the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church, the loan provider. The interest is used to purchase church hymnals and to fund mission and youth organization activities. I’m emphasizing, your gift won’t be filling a banker's pocket.

 

CHURCH GROWTH FUND

Every gift frees up money for the Estonian Church that can then be used to finance other projects that will have significant impact on church life in Estonia.

 

ESTONIA & BEYOND

You are helping to spread the Gospel in Estonia, a country that suffered 50 years under aggressive atheistic propaganda, with outreach into surrounding countries including Russia.

 

TARTU ACADEMY OF THEOLOGY & HOME OF HOPE

Every gift helps Tartu Academy of Theology and Home of Hope continue their activities. Once the loan is paid they will be able to use all Home of Hope rental income, which is about $50,000 dollars annually, for their mission work.

ROBERT, Bible School organizing team member

My name is Robert Bunder and today I have the opportunity to share the story how God found me.

I was born in 1998 to a non-Christian family. I was raised by my mother. I have never met my father. When I grew up I did not have any connections with God or church. I did not go to Sunday school and I did not have a single Christian friend.

My name is Eva-Maria, I’m 15 years old and I come from a Christian family. My home church is St. Peter’s in Tartu. I used to go to church every Sunday and attended a Sunday school when I was younger. Nowadays I can’t make it to church that often but try to go there as much as possible. My personal faith has grown a lot in the past 6 months.
