One meaningful moment for me was when a student returned from a Seminary mission practicum among the Khanty people in Siberia saying, “This can’t stop with a Seminary program, we have to get the churches involved!” What started as a Seminary learning experience created a missions program that encouraged the Estonian church to do what only Estonians can do: reach their kindred nations with the Gospel. It also gave me the chance to teach the Bible in a tipi on the Arctic Circle in Siberia! God gives amazing opportunities when we are faithful to His call!
