The house of peace: a place where Gods love shines among the East-Greenlanders.
East-Greenland is marked by an astonishingly beautiful nature and is one of the most isolated places of the world. It is also a place where people struggle with huge social problems and live without God in deep darkness. Here „at the ends of the earth“ Gods love needs to touch people in word and deed so that Gods kingdom becomes visible. The house of peace will provide the missing facility for this work.
The building will offer a meeting place for Sunday services as well as for small groups, childrens work, seminars and workshops. Also community activities can be offered here that will bring outsiders in touch with the message of the saving love of Christ. There will also be room to host guest speakers and short term missionaries, that are supporting the work.
All these activities serve to bring people into relationship with God and each other. This creates hope! People learn to live in the new life that Christ has made possible. Ultimately this will lead to fundamental change in the paralyzed society of East-Greenland.
This work has already begun but without a facility it is difficult to organize and extend it. The house will enable the local work to yield more fruit.
We are very grateful for anyone who wants to support this project financially! Expected costs are about € 300.000. So far € 50.000 has been collected.
Would you consider supporting the gospel work in East-Greenland by making the house of peace come true?
When it is time for the actual building work volunteers are very welcome to come over to Greenland to help in practical ways.
An invitation will be send out in due time via Peter and Katharinas newsletter.
