       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 spiritual 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 spiritual living water and the bread of life.
       I moved to Estonia six months ago and have been serving the Lord in Tartu Estonia by encouraging the believers and telling my nonbelieving friends about Jesus. I do ministry like Jesus in that it will be relationship based. I will build up and encourage the existing Christians, as well as equip them for ministry. I make friends with the people and share Jesus with them through hospitality. I host small group Bible studies in my home, and share the gospel over coffee. I am be a prayer warrior, shoulder to cry on, arms to hug in times of difficulty, and a heartbeat to love. 
        Why partner with 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 graduated with 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.

       I am so thankful to serve in a country that is a former Soviet state that is looking for it's idenity. My prayer is that more and more will find their idenity in Jesus. In a country where over half of the popluaiton does not believe in God, I many searchig for something more. Please pray for me as God contintues to present opportuntites for me to share about his son. Please prayerfully consider partnering with me financially in this work as I use the temporary to make an eternal impact for Christ.

Update #11
November 21, 2019, 7:11 am

This last month has been an adventure! The pictures in Update 10 are of me and my friend Kriistina. She is another Christian here that desires to know more about God and his word in order to share it with others. We attended a Christian leadership conference together. I look forward to continueign to build a friendship with her and pass on some of the information that has been entrusted to me. The second photo is from my Estonian class. I finished my first Estonian class last week. I am happy to have met the amazing people in the class from France, Japan, Latvia, Indonesia, VIetnam, Pakistan, Russia, and so on. I look forward to keeping in touch especially with the ladies in the class that are married to Estonian men. I have continued sharing the historical account of the life of Jesus with some Estonian women that have never read it before. It has been amazing to see their reactions to the words and actions of Jesus. I have been volunteering at a college outreach where I help serving at the events and share about Jesus and the Bible as I have opportunity. God has given me opportunities to share about him in public schools here as well as I have spoken in some English classes. I am now looking into volunteering at an orphanage here in Tartu. Please pray for me as I do my best to keep my eyes open to the doors God is opening and to make the most of every opportunity.

Pictured here is my friend Kaie and I making soup for the "Alpha Course." This is a class taught on the very basics of Jesus and Christianity in Estonian at a College outreach.
 This past month I was able to pick up several Bibles in Estonian for both children and adults. These will be useful as we continue to make contacts and expand our outreach to different age groups. 
The picture hee is from a spaghetti devotional night that some visiting missionaries that used to live here hosted. The women in this picture are all Christian Estonians. It was so good to catch us and grow closer as well as meet other Estonian women that do not yet believe in God.

Below you can see pictures of some of the recent blessings God has placed in my life. I have been in Estonia for three and a half months now. God has brought many amazing poeple into my life...some who know him and some who do not. I have been meeting with about five friends here who have not yet made Jesus their Lord. Please pray for these young ladies as they get to know Him and for me as I tell them about him. I am also very pleased to annouce that I am now an official resident of Estonia! I have my ID card and can do many more things including getting internet for my apartment. I praise God for all of the open doors he has brung. As you can see pictured below, we had a baptism at camp this past month which is very exciting and refreshing for the believers here. This past week I had the opportunity to host the church in my home. It was a tremendous blessing and encouragement to me. This week I have been meeting with some of the Christians here to know them better and to build friendships with them as well. I pray that as we become a stronger congregation, we will be able to show the love of Christ together to the community around us. Thank you for your prayers and support! If you would like to know more about the Lord's work in Estonia feel free to email me at hope.goode@hotmail.com.

Serving Him with you,

Hope Goode

Hello!
     It has come to my attention that it may appear that the goal amount of funds here is small compared a vision of a year long work in Estonia. Let me clarify. The majority of my funds go to my sponsoring church, who collect funds in a way that allows tax deductibility for my donors. This site was requested by sponsors who wished to have automatic monthly withdraws and the convenience of online giving.
     That being said, I am pleased to announce that I have the legal minimum amount of support required to apply for my year long residency visa! While I am still short of my budget goal, I can now qualify to be a legal temporary resident. Praise God!

If you would prefer to support the work in Estonia through my sponsoring congregation, you can send it to.

Thank you for your love, prayers, and support!

Hello!
I am excited about what God is doing! I will be going to Estonia in just 6 and a half weeks! I am in the process of selling and donating everything but what will fit in a few suitcases. Once I am in Estonia, I will be applying for a one year Residency Visa. This visa will allow me to live in the country in order to serve God and the people there. I have been in touch with the local missionary and church members there, and am looking forward to working with them. Please continue to pray for me as I prepare to venture into the unknown, knowing that God is in it every step of the way. I will spend the next few weeks, travelling, speaking, teaching, and spending time with my friends, family, and supporters.

Update #1
February 20, 2019, 4:58 pm

Hey Everyone!
I have purchased my plane ticket and will be going to Estonia April 16th! This was done in faith as I continue to seek people who want to financially partner in the work that God is doing in Estonia. I will be working in Tartu, Estonia with a missionary couple there who are presently involved in a house church work. Tartu has the largest college in Estonia with many young peole who do not yet know God. During the summer, I will be assisting in several church events including a Christian camp and teaching English from the Bible. In just 7 and a half weeks I will be moving there. Please continue to pray for the work in Estonia and for me as I prepare to join God's work there.
