It seems that opportunities always open up when I’m in Estonia. Today I visited a country house near Sillamae, Estonia. Pastor Artur Pold and others want to open a women’s drug rehab center in that area, so we went to look at a house that is being sold by a member of a local church:
A lady named Galina is directing a ministry in Sillamae that started about 5 years ago. They have a soup kitchen, children’s ministry and safe house there. It’s very good work that is growing and bearing good fruit. They want to open a women’s rehab center, and they already have three women who want to lead it and several women who would live there.
The land has a small house, a sauna building, and a few out buildings. It’s in a great location, not too far from town and only 400 yards (meters) from the Gulf of Finland.
Artur and Galina like the place very much and want to buy it and start a rehab center there. The owner is selling it below market value; he’s asking 20,000 euros and may be willing to work out a payment plan. Artur and Galina are confident that they can find the money for renovations and operating expenses if they can purchase it.
Artur said that there is not a women’s rehab center in that area, and there is a great need.
As you can see, it is a very simple place. That’s one thing I like about it. I’d like to help them get it, and some donors in the US have given some money that could be a start.
Here’s a short video I made:
