Hello, my name is Hope Goode, and I am a disciple of Jesus. I have come to know and love a people who have a spirtual poverty in their nation and culture. This is Estonia. It is a beautiful country and people, but they do not know God. They do not suffer from a lack of healthy food or water, but instead from spirtual living water and the bread of life.
I visited this country 6 months ago on a survey trip. I spent two weeks with Estonian Christians and missionaries who have served there. I also worked at a summer camp and was humbled by the campers hunger for love and Christ centered community. I have commited to go back long term, starting with a year long commitment.
I will do ministry like Jeus in that it will be relationship based. I will build up and encourage the exsisting Christians, as well as equip them for ministry. I will make friends with the people and share Jesus with them through hospitality. I will host small group Bible studies in my home, and share the gospel over coffee. I will be a prayer warrior, shoulder to cry on, arms to hug in times of difficulty, and a heartbeat to love.
Why send me? God has spent the last six years training me for ministry. I have done missions in the states, and trips to other places including reservations, Detroit, Mexico, Honduras, San Antonio and so on. I was trained in the Adventures in Missions program and have finished my Bachelor's studies in Bible and Missions. God has given me a heart for the lost and the broken, and opened a window of opportunity to serve him in Estonia. Please prayerfully consider partnering with me financially in this work as I use the temporary to make an eternal impact for Christ.
