Purpose:
The primary purpose of this trip will be to train and equip Icelandic believers from Loftstofan Baptistakirkja and Redeemer City in evangelism. We will also spend a significant amount of time engaging the people of Iceland in Gospel Conversations. Another core component of the trip will be a family festival that we will be helping to put on for families in the community. We will spend time inviting people in the community to that festival as we pray for them and share the Gospel.
