The "drought" in Finland is over!

A decade long "drought" in the Lutheran Church of Finland is over! For ten years, it has been impossible for a man who believes in the Scriptures to be ordained as a Lutheran pastor for service in the Finnish Lutheran Church.

But thanks to the faithful Bishop Matti Väisänen and the courageous Mission Province, those days are no more! On October 2, 2010, three men were ordained to the priesthood in a solemn ordination rite at the Chapel of the Sacred Heart in Helsinki.

More details of this happy and holy occasion - as well as some magnificent pictures - can be found here at Dr. Chris Barnekov's Scandinavia House website.

This is an exciting and joyful time to be a Confessional, Traditional, Scriptural Lutheran, especially in places where Satan has been temporarily successful in using hijacked "ecclesiastical" structures to hinder the spread of the Gospel.

O little flock, fear not the foe!  For the gates of hell shall not prevail!
