A discussion of the potential possibilities and opportunities for the new mission dominated the hours of the first meeting. Board officers were elected. Matters related to goals and protocol were agreed upon. Another meeting was scheduled for the future. The meeting ended with sincere heart-felt prayers from each board member.
After the last “Amen,” my father stood up. With a choked voice, he thanked the men for their commitment to take the Gospel story into Eastern Europe. He told them that he would be praying for them. And he did!
During the next two and a half years I remained in Germany and France as a missionary, ministering among the Russian refugees.
I accepted several invitations to testify at SGA (UK) mission meetings in England and Wales. In later years, there were other such opportunities to be in SGA (UK) meetings in Northern Ireland, as well as other areas. I was thrilled to meet many new friends who were also praying for the needy souls in Eastern Europe.
