During the second Advent Service, the church received the first video greeting from Pastor Janne. This was a long-awaited greeting that brought joy and thankfulness to us all. Pastor Janne is still in the hospital where he continues his rehabilitation. In the greeting, Pastor Janne expressed great thankfulness for all the love he and his family has experienced – especially through the outpouring of prayer that has been in the church and spread throughout many places over the entire world. He shared how the intercession has lifted him during the situation he has been in since the accident and how the Lord is so close to him and helping him. He is praying for us all, both the church in general but also each individual member of the church. Janne spoke of how in the middle of this difficult time, he has experienced a strong love for Jesus and how joy and strength have been constant in the hard times. He shared about how the spirit of intersession has been so strong, sometimes in the middle of the night, for evangelization, missions, and our future. Janne spoke of faith for a new year of grace and prosperity in 2023; a year we can build the church together. He expressed his desire and expectation to come and share a great sermon, filled with love, that the Lord has laid on his heart for the church. The greeting concluded with these warm words, “God bless you all and thank you that you are the wonderful, fantastic, beautiful people you are, who love me, and now I can love you back and express my love and prayers for you. God bless you all and have a wonderful Advent Service. Thank you for being who you are.”
🙏🏼Please continue to pray for complete health for his entire body!

We have good news to share concerning our dear Pastor Janne. We (Simon and Sebastian), have now had the opportunity to visit Janne. He has recently entered a new phase where his condition has improved remarkably. Janne is now speaking clearly and can have lengthy coherent conversations. He doesn’t recall the accident, he repeats himself sometimes and also has a hard time remembering people’s names. This will continue to be a long rehabilitation process in the hospital and we continue to pray for Pastor Janne and his entire family. Our conversation with him was filled with love and care for the church. Janne is praying for all of us! He is so thankful for all the prayers from the church and from the body of Christ both in Sweden and over the entire world!
Currently, the visitors list is limited to only a few people that includes the family and a couple of the Pastors that are allowed to visit. Thank you for understanding that all other visitor requests are being kindly declined at this time.
