The last couple of months have been an adjustment for the family as Hannah Caroline arrived. She is a joy to all of us. Mom and dad are thankful that she started sleeping 6 hours a night very early. Lisa is a proud big sister and likes to help out caring for Hannah.
Many saved at conference
The work in Kenya is continuing while Vidar is off the field to help the family transition. Pastor Meni just finished holding a “laborers conference” where many of our students and other ministers attended. The focus of this conference is on personal evangelism. We received a report that 162 have given their lives to Jesus, and 27 were water baptized. Many of our students are also testifying how the school has helped them to be more effective in ministry. All glory be to God.
Thor Ligard in Keroka
Vidar’s dad (Thor) just arrived in Kenya. He has spent today on the road. Tomorrow he continues to Keroka where he will teach “Family Life”, “Blood Covenant”, “Old Testament”, and “Prosperity.” Please pray that people will come to know our heavenly Father better, that they will understand redemption and learn to walk in all its benefits. Pray also for strength and wisdom for Thor and the team that is traveling with him. Keroka is a place with much Catholicism and many have a strong works mentality.
Work in Norway
In Norway, Vidar has spent some time building relationships with ministers. We see that churches here are in great need and we have on our hearts to do what we can to help them. Our home county Telemark has a great history of revival, but today we find lots of churches with empty chairs and pews.
Traveling to Tulsa
Next month, the family is traveling to Tulsa. Cathrine will spend her maternity leave there with the kids and Vidar will travel from there to Kenya this winter. We are looking forward to coming home and spend time with our church family and friends in Tulsa again.
