AN "OUT-of-CHURCH" REVIVAL??
-by Mike Story.

I thought you'd be interested in what's happening here in Finland.

There is an extraordinary movement of the Holy Ghost here. 
Something unprecedented in its size and growth.

Young people are Coming To Faith; they have an immediate 
desire to go out into the streets and bring others into the fold. 
There is NO interest in "church" or religion at all!

They want teaching and spiritual fathers & mothers; they know 
"only milk" yet go out and teach that to kids in the streets ... 
And they Come To Faith!

We have had to open our houses to them ( we were told to buy an 
old village school 20 years ago...  so surprise-surprise  we have 
two classrooms where we can train groups of future leaders ). Kids 
are leaving the churches and seeking The Lord elsewhere because 
they can't find Him in the religion and ceremonies and that applies 
just as much to Pentecostal as to Free church, Lutheran, Orthodox, 
Anglican, Baptist as it does to ALL Organised Religion: they WANT 
what I call "inspired disorganisation" where MAN doesn't do the 
organising; we just LISTEN ... And then do as we are told!

One young man ( to whom I have lent my copy of Out Of Church 
Christians before I even read it myself ! ) is co-ordinating these 
groups and acts as an enabler; bringing teaching from elders ( in 
the "mature Christian" sense ) to beginners; arranging meetings 
and encouraging these young people to keep going ! Very Book Of Acts!

The LORD is doing extraordinary things in India, in Andaman and 
in Finland ... Thought you'd like to know!
