Spiritual Growth Through a Visit to Estonia
Marianna Dubciak, Country Coordinator for Moms in Prayer in Moldova, traveled to Estonia to attend a European conference. She was grateful for the opportunity to join other Christian women for a wonderful time of spiritual growth, sharing the Moms in Prayer ministry and enjoying fellowship.
At the conference, women from 12 European countries were present, and Marianna had the privilege of presenting Moms in Prayer! She spoke about the miracles the Lord has carried out in her country through moms praying and how He has grown Moms in Prayer for 20 years in Moldova through three generations.
One evening while she was in Estonia, she had an amazing opportunity to share Moms in Prayer and encourage mothers in a Russian-speaking church in Tallinn, the capital city. The mothers told her that such meetings don't happen by accident. They had been praying for someone to come and show them how they could pray for their children in a special way. Marianna taught them the Four Steps of Prayer together with what the Bible says about prayer. It was a time of incredible fellowship, one accord prayer and intercession before God.
After the conference, Marianna remarked, "The Lord sent me to Estonia in answer to their prayers, so mothers would hear about the Moms in Prayer ministry. I am grateful to be a part of such an amazing ministry! Lord help me to spread and bring hope to other mothers wherever I go. Praise to Him!"
One of the things I always pray for is the opportunity, God willing, to come at last to see you. For I long to visit you so I can bring you some spiritual gift that will help you grow strong in the Lord. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. Romans 1:10-12 NLT
MORE ABOUT ESTONIA: Estonia is on the northeastern edge of Europe bordering Russia and Latvia and only 50 miles from Finland across the Baltic Sea. Comprised of 1,500 islands with almost half of the land covered in forest, Estonia is home to 1.3 million people. It has strong Nordic ties because of its proximity and cultural influences gained over the centuries during Scandinavian settlement. Estonia joined the European Union in 2004.
