Final Update from 2013 The European Mission

Graduates & participants in Norway’s LTS

Today was the last day of our leadership training seminar in Lyngdal, Norway. We finished our teaching, graduated PWI’s newly-trained teachers, had a Celebration of Lights ceremony and enjoyed communion together.

We praise and thank God that all went well and that eight people in Norway are now certified to teach with PWI. The other six people who attended the teacher training chose not to do presentations so they did not get diplomas. But they were recognized with participation certificates.

Pastor Bjorn will preach tomorrow (Sunday) night at Betanea Church in Lyngdal.

Miriam Perry and I are flying to Bergen, Norway on Monday morning.

Pastor Miriam and I (Shelley) fly home to the USA on Thursday, Sept. 26 after a couple of days of sightseeing. This is the first trip to Norway for both of us. Pastor Bjorn will visit his family in Norway before traveling home to Flagstaff.

Our mission to Ukraine and Norway is almost finished. Glory to God for what He did in the students and the team in both the prayer school in Ukraine and the leadership training in Norway. We all grew closer to Him and were challenged to grow more in our prayer lives, our teaching gifts and in other ways He wants to use us so that His kingdom will come and his perfect will will be done!

    Hello Bjorn—–Jim Williamson here, have not seen you since cousin Gerry’s service in Phoenix. Maxine and I just returned from Norway, traveled with good friends to Island of Karmoy/Fosen area as well as Stavanger. We met with a genteman who is active in the local Lutheran Church. He has led some prayer groups to the middle East. I told him about you, your mission and wanted to connect the two of you. Please e-mail me or call my cell at 206/669-3599. Something positive may come out of this connection.
    All the best—-Cousin Jimmy
