The best thing about Vamos Mission was the variety of subjects, which allowed me to learn as much as possible. It was a privilege to be at Vamos, because in my daily life I would never have time to study missions so intensively and live my daily life with people who share the same calling.
Learning about the different forms of missionary work and the experiences of missionaries formed a great whole in Vamos. Each of them opened my eyes to see more and more paths. There are many ways to spread the gospel. There is no single path, but each person who responds to the call has his or her own path.
The course will begin on January 10th, and end on March 31st 2024.
The main training will take place at the Finnish Pentecostal church of Lake Worth. Address: 1510 High Ridge Road, Lake Worth Beach, FL 33461.
