Visit to the Southern States

During March 3-13 I made an early spring trip to Carolinas and Georgia and visited several churches in the area. It was great to travel to south. I truly enjoyed warm and sunny weather which was like summer for me. At the same time in Estonia was ground covered with decent amount of snow and temperature below zero.

I had privilege to visit churches in Salisbury and Gastonia (North Carolina), in Cataula and Sharpsburg (Georgia), in Springfield and around Columbia (South Carolina). I’m truly thankful to all my hosts and people who gathered to listen my story about our mission work in Estonia. Your commitment was very encouraging and hopefully these connections will continue.

I’m especially grateful to Brian and Barbara Felt from Colorado who supported my trip financially. They have covered majority of my U.S. travel expenses for the past decade. This has been very strategical support. They have given us an opportunity to share with American Christians our faith experiences and mission endeavors.

At the same time when I traveled in Southern States was Mattias running a youth conference ‘The Juggler’ at Home of Hope. That was already second year in a row.
